Yesterday Chasing Cottons presented the first lesson: Fabric. Rebecca gave some great information that allowed me some freedoms that reminded me of Stacy Julian. Stacy teaches a style in scrapbooking that is not the "norm", a freedom to scrapbook in a way that is not more relaxing. That is what I felt Rebecca taught about choosing fabrics. Choose fabrics that draw you to them. Designers create a wide variety of fabrics in a single range, that help us choose a variety of patterns that work well together. I for one always fear that the fabrics that I pick out won't blend together.
A preview for week two, which is design, we will be learning how to design our own quilt. I like to follow patterns but I also want to let my creativity flow and develop. I am looking forward to the coming weeks.
I am still waiting for a needle screw for my machine. Each day I get more and more concerned that I won't get everything done this month.
