2 Things….. with the Kwetterkwilters

Last week I mentioned that I wished I had taken pictures of the other Dragons that were shared for the 12x12 Challenge…

Marina took pictures of all of them… which I will share here because I think they are all so creative… and great vision for the word ‘DRAGON’! (scroll down for mine, its in the last post)

The first one up is Laetitias… she pieced the background and then and using her sewing machine stitches (specifically the tail) created the dragon on ‘wash a way stabilizer’.

Next up is Lynette, she used Lizard from Australia (Frilled Lizard), for her dragon… foundation pieced…. and I can just see him puffing up as a warning to leave him be!

Marina’s is all sparkly with silver threads and a very awesome geometric background, backed and bound in satin…

Hester also chose to foundation piece her dragon…. Reminds me of the dragon in Shrek…. movies!

Natasja se draak

and lastly is Susara's Dragon--- which I think I like the best…. because her view is different……. just the essential parts!

The next word is ‘PASSION’!!!

The other thing was a color class yesterday, given by another South African Quilter, Marian. She did a wonderful class and covered in better detail and more concisely than a well known name quilter in the US did in a 2 day class!!!

The exercises were more fun…. and we all came away with a billion… little 2 inch squares to play with in a color wash or a postage stamp quilt…. or backgrounds for 12 x 12 quilts.

Our work table about halfway through the class… .we were on a ‘Tea Break’
