My New Toy - Part 2

 Tuesday, July 31, 2012

Well it was finally delivered.  Yep, you guessed it, the rest of my new toy!  Isn't she beautiful.  I must admit, it was love at first sight!

I also had my first lesson on the same night.  I must say that it went pretty well.  I definitely have A LOT more practicing to do, but at least I have a starting point and something to build from.

Here are the results from the very first lesson. 

The first thing I learned was squiggles and loopy d loos. 

Then we moved on to flowers, which I think need a lot more work, but my teacher was impressed. 

Stars.  These were definitely fun.

My teacher thought I was advancing pretty quickly, so she decided to teach me feathers as well.

The top batch of feathers were my teacher's and the bottom branch is my attempt.  I definitely think mine need some work, but at least it looks like a feather.  It is a little harder to see my teacher's only because we were starting to run out of room and had to put designs on top of each other.

I must say that I absolutely love to play with my new toy and can't wait to actually try out some of these new design techniques on some of my quilts.  Good thing I have plenty of baby quilts in the works!
