For the next three years, my friend Elizabeth and I are program co-chairs for our guild, Kenmore Quilters. We have put a lot of time in beforehand, and we started our first program last Monday. We decided that people are not sure how to find something they are inspired by and draft a pattern to make it theirs and to figure the yardage. Elizabeth and I combed the internet looking for worksheets to record and help, but what we found, even to buy, was not real helpful. So, we designed a whole set of sheets and copied them for our members. The presentation started with an inspiration photo, then graph paper, then the same block done in three sizes to make 3 quilts. We will be following these up with more design exercises.
Next time up is half square triangles in February.
