Saturday, I had the privilege of teaching Patchwork Math to a wonderful group of quilters at Prairie Queens Quilt Shop in San Jose, CA. This group was highly motivated! Not much chatter, all work, work, work! I could tell they came to learn some new techniques.
The girls had some components made and up on the design walls before lunchtime.
I use a document camera, computer, projector, and screen when I teach. When I arrive at a shop or guild with all of my equipment, I look like I'm moving in!
The girls all made the same components, yet look at all the different fabrics and arrangements.
By the end of the day, the blocks were growing into quilted beauty! Again, they all made the same seven components. What a wonderful variety.
The girls used the formulas in the book and made half-square triangles, quarter-square triangles, square in a square, square in a triangle, flying geese, double flying geese and Y-squares. They were busy!
Can you find all of the components in the blocks? This is like playing Where's Waldo.
