Denim Flower Class

Sadly there were only 2 students in my class last night at the Arts Council. The Director was saying that they may not continue the program next year because attendance has dropped so much over the 5 years they have held monthly Art Nights. Too bad...

I might pink the edges...

I forgot to share this other flower on Monday. It's about 3.5" across with a gorgeous antique mother of pearl button. I also want to make it in a smaller size. We didn't make this flower in class but I did demo the process and I'm sure both Sarah and Jackie could easily make them at home. Yes - there was a student named Sarah, a quilting friend, in class. Jackie would say something to 'Sarah' and we would both answer. LOL.

Mine is at the top. Sarah's is bottom left (love the variety of denim) and Jackie's is on the right (she's also a painter and she's going to add some color to her denim and then put it on a denim bag)



Flying Swallows

I didn't leave myself enough time this morning to decide which purple hexies to add to my denim pillow band so I grabbed another project to work on at lunch. It feels good to work on some of those UFOs I have been neglecting. I still have 3.5 months until my trunk shows in October and next May I have been book for a class/trunk show also so I'll be a hexie machine for the next 10 months. And all y'all know I'll be like a pig in mud! Thrilled to pieces!!

Bummer about the art nights losing support.
I really like what you made in your class. Too bad more stitchers didn't take advantage of the opportunity to learn from you!
Love the Flying Swallows block. As a child, our family went to Capistrano, and Mom and Dad still have little porcelain swallows hanging in their home from that trip. : )

what a good way to use up old jeans, I have recently been given a link for a pattern to make a denim hat, will try it next week. Such a shame if you class finishes could do with you over here I would certainly come. Your block looks good. Hope you will share your trunk show contents with us who cannot come to your show and tell

Your students did a wonderful job!! It is hard to get people to sign up for classes. These would look great on a purse. The MOP button looks great on the one flower. Have fun hexie stitching---me too!!

I love your flowers. I took my only quilting class at the local rec center and was dissappointed there were not enough students to sign up to have more classes, there were only two in my class.
