My mom and I were able to sign up for a Gwen Marston workshop in June and we are SO excited!! I have been dying to take a class from Gwen for ages! The workshop will focus on her book Liberated Medallions Quilts. Even though I am excited, I am STUMPED about which direction I should take. We need to start thinking about the fabrics we want to bring to class.
Do I want to go scrappy? Or pull from my stash? A liberated ‘Parts Department’ (from the book Collaborative Quilting)? Or a study on a particular shape… ie. stars, flying geese, etc? Or maybe something abstract? There are WAY too many choices & decisions to make! At first I was thinking of cleaning up my red & white scrap basket. There are a lot of strings. And then throwing in some stuff from my stash. But the more I look around for inspiration the more undecided I am becoming. AAAAArrrrrggggg!!!! What’s a girl to do? I can’t take my whole sewing room. How do I narrow down my options? I’m hoping I will have clearer answers to those questions by the time June comes around.
Realistically, I really should do something out of my comfort zone and try to stretch myself. If you remember these… I already have a few Medallions under my belt.
