Beginning January 31, 2013, I will be teaching an extension course class at Millsaps college! The class will be once a week for 2 hours, running for 6 weeks. I'll also have additional time scheduled at the studio during the week for students to work on their pieces. We'll be making wall hanging quilts from photographs, from the pattern stage through to the finished piece.
I am unbelievably excited about this opportunity. I love teaching as much as I do sewing and I am really looking forward to this class. I have posted some pictures of completed pieces using this technique. Some of my own and a couple from students. Gwen Harris did the Cypress Swamp piece while working with me in the MS Arts Commission apprenticeship program and it won a blue ribbon at the Pine Belt Quilters show last month. Rynetta's piece isn't finished yet, but hers is absolutely stunning. The rocks are insanely realistic.
