OK, take a deep breath and hold on tight, here are a few pics from today's "Total Eclipse" class! Jackie has been a terrific instructor, offering her humor and gentle guidance along with effective teaching of Judy Niemeyer's techniques, her own killer tips and lots of cheering.
Sharon had hers all ready to lay out!
Most of us hadn't gotten that far! But they are all just gorgeous, every combination working a different kind of magic.
Elisa is the only one in the class using regular prints instead of batiks - Wowee-wow-wow, they're fabulous!
Rita's got a gradation groove going here:
Process: laying out the frames
And filling in with color. This woman has a serious eye, don't you agree? It's like the depths of the forest in May:
Barb was so pleased with this block - ALL of her blocks are going to be fabulous! Keep an eye on her blog, this lady has some terrific and varied interests! That's Jackie's version in the background, if you're a regular reader of her blog you've seen it before.
Maria works on her layout:
SO beautiful ... Sigh...
How are my own blocks coming, you ask? Well, I'm probably about in the middle of the group as far as production is concerned, but here's not not-quite-final-but-nearly-there layout:
Hope you enjoyed the eye candy! This was a fabulous class, hope you enjoyed the bits I could share. Hopefully Jackie will be teaching more classes soon - BTW she has a tutorial on foundation paper piecing on her blog today if you want to give it a try, it's fun!
