Wednesday’s workshop project was learning to work with silk. Debbie Maddy led us through the process and our 3-hour class project was a large churn dash block.
Sadly, I was having one of “those” days and ended up making a miss-cut that required me to buy additional fabric before I could finish the project. Fortunately Debbie had a little more of what I needed for my kit and I was back in business with even enough left over to add a border. Last night I finished it. It’s approximately 16 inches square.
I love the look of silk, and learned a lot during the class. One of our program speakers this year said we should expose ourselves to as many different teachers as possible. I truly buy into this concept and am very glad I took advantage of this opportunity. The silk projects she showed during her trunk show were exquisite. Debbie is an engaging teacher, but this is probably not an avenue I’ll pursue. Cotton is much more accessible in our area and not quite as pricey.
