Our class teacher Ana Paula Brasil is really fantastic and with so much spunk.  However I was not so sure about drawing my face or anyones face for that matter.  Really don’t like drawing faces. Rather landscapes, mountains or sit by a pond peaceful quiet places you know…. Faces and people are not quiet. I know that is just what I think…file-2016-09-14-9-25-11-am

 

 

This next part though is AMAZING! You get to draw with your sewing machine and create a picture all by filling in the blank spots…..Really love this part of the project, I could do this all over again.  Now what to do with this is the big question. Perhaps I use it as a panel for a quilt.

Ana Paula Brasil  holding the drawing, where I have the drawing on fabric that I am working on. A good five hours to this point. With Ana explaining the idea on how we should look at drawing this kind of cartoon portrait.

 

Ein Portrait von mir, alles mit meine Nähmaschine genäht. Wow ganze 12 Stunden war ich dabei, dieses zu beenden.

Unsere lehrerin Ana Paula Brasil ist wirklich fantastisch und mit so viel Mumm. Allerdings war es mir nicht  so drum mein Gesicht von einem Bild zu zeichnen.  Paste mir gar nicht!  Zeichne viel lieber  Landschaften, Berg oder sitz bei einem Teich dort wo es ruhige ist.  Menschen und Gesichter sind nicht ruhig. Na ja so denke ich.

Dieser nächste Teil ist aber echt Toll! Jetzt darf ich mit der Nähmaschine alle lehre Teile ausfüllen und ein Bild herstellen!  ….. wirklich lieben diesen Teil des Projekts.  Fertig! ganze 12 stunden brauchte das…so was soll ich damit machen, ist die große Frage. Vielleicht benutze ich es als eine Teile für eine Steppdecke….

Quilted Rug Sewing At My House

IMG_0098Yes it was a day or two of sewing

Quilted Rug Sewing At My House”

after all I work in a place that sells lots of quilting fabric at  “The Quilts Store”

 The fun part of this is, we get some amazing teachers in from time to time..but let me tell you we have several of my colleges that are amazing teachers too.

One of the classes was this

  Quilted Rugs with Al Cote

Have a look at one of my earlier posts another great teacher. I would recommend either one of their classes for sure.

Yes I was working my shift but I had to see all the wonderful samples the students/customers where working on from time to time too. Smiles, just part of me interacting with the customers too…I believe this is my role in good customer service too.

So I picked up the some tips on how to make something like this RUG too. But since I was not in the class my sample may not be exactly as Al instructed it …but I am happy with the way it turned out. Though I wish it would rag more like the rag quilts do.

Really fun, though the cutting out of all the fabric was a bit “ahhhh” do I have to through all this fabric out to get to the 1st, 2nd, 3rd layer etc….I guess it will go in a bag for stuffing.
