Seascapes - A Workshop

Once again 9 friends met for a fun and creative day. This time the emphasis was on seascapes and  water. Another of our talented group stepped up and led this one. It was good for me to have the opportunity to work in a field I'm not that comfortable with under the watchful eye of someone who's already "been there".

Some opted to work in turquoise and others in royal blues. Though we all followed a general pattern, they certainly all turned out very different.

Choosing the fabrics was the first step. We all brought far more than we needed and guess what?
.......if we didn't have what we needed.......we were in a quilt shop that would happily sell you anything you wanted!

There were a few false starts but once we got going you could hear a pin drop. Never have so many ladies been so focused and so quiet. Good sign..Art Happening Here. I tried to get a picture of each.

Some got only part way through and other finished assembling the piece. I don't think any of us got to the point of stitching. We had all faithfully transported out sewing machines and maybe one was used.

We aren't meeting again until early June. Hopefully everyone will remember to bring their seascapes and I can include the "Finished" pieces in another post.
