Six blocks. That is what I got done. It may sound like so very little, but it was really a lot. And wait till you see what the other people did with their fabric and ideas!
Flavin Glover was wonderful She is very unassuming, laid back, personable and has a great ability to take fabrics and turn them into wonders. She has based her career on the lowly Log Cabin and Courthouse Steps blocks. But she has taken them to amazing heights with her creativity and imagination. And they are all fairly easily done, it is a “why didn’t I think of that” moment when you see a piece of her making.
Yes, of course, I bought the
kool-aid, ah…book. And paid enormous full price for it, but it was worth it. She SIGNED it with my name and HERS!
She started out with a lecture on the beginnings of the Log Cabin and how it has changed in different periods. And then she talked about how she saw something differently one day, experimented and learned how to tweak a common block and make it so different in so many ways.
She called these guys dogs but they looked more like aliens to me.
She said that when she made the heart one, it just happened one day when she was making blocks and just piling them up. She worked out the border and it is spectacular!
I fell in love with her houses about 5 years ago.
Now these are some of the blocks we did in class. It was free choice so they all are different and amazing in their own right.
Can’t wait to see these quilts finished!
