On Sunday we had are second Vintage Rose workshop, which is a technique of the month. In all we have 6 workshops to learn all the techniques to make our versions of this quilt. In the two workshops so far they have been full on with lots to learn , plus there is lots of homework to complete once we go home.
In this workshop we were working on the rose bud section. The outer spikey section is similar to what we did in the first workshop, so that was straight forward. We cut and started the stitching. The rest will be part of our homework.
The lone star bud section was the new technique we had to learn in this workshop. Once cut out we headed back to the sewing machines for some strip piecing. Very interesting way of doing it. By the end of it we ended up with a section that looks like this. This one is mine.
There is lots of cutting and sewing involved and I am sure there will be more. Now we have our homework to complete. The catch is there is 8 of each section, so it will take us a little while to complete. Plus I have put on a catch up/help class each month to help anyone who needs help. You do have to remember I am doing the class with the ladies so I am learning as we go too.
Hopefully next month I will have some pictures of the other ladies progress.
Until Next Time
