Saturday, I gathered with 20 other women to learn how to paint on fabric with watercolor paints. The class was taught by Master Quilter Juanita Yeager and was part of the festivities of the 2011 Atlanta Quilt Festival.
I always enjoyed school, and I enjoy quilt school even more. Whether I intend to continue to use the technique taught in the class, the creative energy of a group of like-minded quilters is inspirational. I doubt I will ever excel at watercolor painting, but I had fun trying.
In fact, India who happened by while delivering ice for the cookies and punch reception, was horrified when she saw my poppy. Always her Mom’s worst critic, India said my poppy was easily the least attractive in the room — so much so that she felt compelled to take it over and try to help her mother out.
All in all, I think my poppy turned out pretty good for a first try. You know a teacher is amazing when she can bring even the slowest student along! LOL.
If you ever have the chance take a class from Juanita Yeager, jump on it. You will not be disappointed. Meanwhile, check out her web site. Her quilts are true eye candy!
