The Small Art Quilt Online Class with Jane LaFazio

I can hear you saying "Not another class". Yes, I just couldn't help myself. I did Jane's Mini Quilt Class last year and I couldn't help enrolling in this next class of her's. It's a shame that the classes I wanted to do were all on at the same time. But I'm not going to stress about it, I'm going to enjoy reading the class notes, starting the projects, interacting with the group and will get the projects done as I can. I'm then going to have a break from classes so I can catch up on doing all these wonderful projects. (Although I am hanging out to do Sharon's Personal Library of Stitches class - hoping it might be later in the year).

Anyway, this class of Jane's is very inspirational. I've started on week 1 which is Fabric Collage. It involves weaving fabric and using it as a background or cutting it to use for the main subjects. It also involves using a repetative subject. I'm using hearts. I've woven a background of purple fabrics that I need to sew (in the photo some of the fabrics look redish). I will probably play around with the hearts abit before I finish and add some embellishments. Its a really fun class. Lesson 2 looks like lots of fun too. I better get cracking!!!!

Thanks Jane for visiting my blog and leaving a message. I'm really enjoying your class. I can't go any further in Susan's class at the moment as I'm waiting on getting some of the water soluable embroidery paper.
