My Favorite Classes

 Today's prompt in the 31 Day Blog Writing Challenge is "Most Impactful Class."

I can't narrow it down to just one; sorry! 

A few years ago, I was lucky enough to take classes with Jacquie Gering and Gwen Marston, and my experiences with both of these talented quilters only served to guide me further down the path to improv and modern quilting. From them, I learned to embrace no-rules quilting, to follow my instincts, and to most importantly, have fun!

Here's a look at what I worked on during those classes:

Super wonky corners in the Stitch & Flip Improvisation class!

Me and Jacquie

I think it's time to quilt this one...I'll add it to the list!

Improv plus sign blocks that I made in the Slice & Improvisation class:

I added the blues ones in this summer. I need to get back to this project!

Small Studies with Gwen Marston - all my "parts"

Me and Gwen. See that little belly bulge under my shirt? He's now 6 years old!

My finished small study

Liberated medallion in the works!

And complete:

I'm so grateful to have taken classes from both of these ladies, and I like to think that their work influences the quilting I do today.
