Today I went to the first of three classes on Judy Niemeyer's "Total Eclipse" pattern. My first time foundation paper piecing. Totally cool. It takes a lot of tools and a lot of room, messy if you're that kind of worker (I am!), results in some fabric waste, and wow-wow-wow, delivers impressive results! Look at those pointy points!
Most of you already know, or know of, Jackie Kunkel; she's our instructor, and I can tell you right now she's just as kind and funny and clever as she is in her online persona. She's also fond of the occasional killer sale; keep your eyes peeled and you'll be amply rewarded!
LOTS of homework - there are a whole lot more quadrants to make before next week's class - but I couldn't help but share this. I'm totally chuffed, I want to give this picture to my Mom and see it posted on her fridge! Lookie what I made!
