Wasilowski Workshop

 The past two days my local guild had workshops led by Laura Wasilowski of Artfabrik.  Now I am generally a pretty traditional quilter but even I had a great time fusing and finished a small "art-quilt!"

In addition she is a really fun instructor.  We had sold out workshops both days! The first day they worked on the Tiny houses which involved lots of collage making.  Today's class worked on Garden of Eden which involved lots of bias strips and composing of flowers.   Amazing how different all the pieces came out!

I think I next show will need a corner with a big "Chicago School of Fusing" sign over it.

I used to take all kinds of classes that were totally outside my comfort zone. You always learn new things and it's fun to try something different for a change.
