Quilt Surface Design Symposium -QSDS
After the Quilt Show I spent a wonderful five days taking a class with Jane Sassaman at QSDS in Columbus, Ohio. This was the fourth year I have attended and it gets better every year. This class was using abstract designs. Connie St. Clair did abstract leaves for her first attempt. Here are her templates. One of Jane's Quilts and my favorite.
Still more of her work.
I decided to do bugs and made wings for them.
My first attempt at trying to pull it together.
Connie's first round on a green background she later rejected.
Another classmate whose name I as usual didn't note. The wings looked a little boring so red trim was added.
Another classmate's work in progress.
This was the beginning of a work by Barbara Lange from Germany. Check out the gorgeous quilts on her web page http://www.barbaralange.com/
I just loved this one.
Connie switched to a black background.
A small bug adds to the mix and I try to figure out which wings should show over the edge and which should not.
