Painting on fabric!  No one had any idea what this month’s mystery project was going to be.  With “one half yard of white, washed and ironed (no starch) fabric” being the only item on the supply list, everyone seemed quite perplexed in trying to figure out what we would be doing today!  Well, it didn’t take long for Debbie to bring everyone up to speed, sharing a variety of completed projects she had previously done with fabric paint.

On our opening day of the 2017 Fall Into Quilting retreat, the day started with a heavy frost and some cold temperatures outside!  However, inside  the Wellness Center, the excitement was palpable.  Between greeting fellow quilters from previous years and introducing folks new to the retreat experience, friends catching up with each others lives, staking out table space, getting machines set up and picking up materials for the days classes, it was very exciting!

Today was a busy and action packed day!  The morning started with Diana’s class making an illusion table runner.  Illusion patterns allow quilters to experiment with hues of color and arrangement of blocks to trick the beholder’s eye into believing the illusion.  Playing with color and value, 3-D quilt blocks offer a way for quilters to turn a flat surface into a picture that seems to pop off the page. The depth is often formed by quilting shapes like diamonds, …

Our afternoon sessions got off to a great start!  The clouds parted, a soft breeze came in and the creativity was flowing!  Diana’s class embarked on a journey into free motion quilting.  Free motion quilting is all about practicing…playing really…with your sewing machine, thread and fabric. The focus here is on unmarked free motion background fill patterns to help you gain skill and confidence in your stitching abilities.  While it can be somewhat intimidating, none of the class participants appeared …
