The second class concentrated on feathers and we received patterns that can be easily traced onto any quilt top or block. I don't think I've ever quilted as many feathers as I did today! This class was 4 hours.
The classes were very casual and fun. We could walk around and talk amongst ourselves. I usually get a little nervous when I have to sew a new technique with a classroom of people around. I was quite comfortable. I wanted to sew so I could practice the new techniques I was just starting to learn.
Leah showed us her new projects as well as some of her older ones.
Her machine quilting was amazing! She passed around all sorts of projects she had worked on.
I'm sure this looks familiar! It was great to see this in person. It's on the cover of one of her books also and represents her 365 free motion patterns.
This was a whole cloth she designed. I actually started this project but never finished. My free motion skills just weren't good enough.
These two classes were excellent. If you ever have the chance to take a class with Leah Day, go for it! You won't regret it!
