On opportunity to take a class from Karen K. Stone this Monday fell into my lap last Friday (thanks Susie!) and I am so thrilled that I was able to do it.
You probably are aware that Karen is the Queen of the New York Beauty block and you can see a lot of her quilts on Pinterest--a good board is HERE
I will show what we actually worked on in class another day, but today I wanted to share some little peeks at some of her work.
Her creativity and workmanship is amazing!
|This is a detail from her latest ribbon winning quilt.|
The diamonds were English paper pieced by machine--a technique that she will be detailing in an upcoming book.
You can see the whole quilt HERE
Reptile Wisdom: First Place Traditional Pieced
|The double points on this one she accomplished by "tucking" in fabrics.|
I'm not sure how that works, but it is stunning!
|Reverse applique by machine.|
|Raw edge applique leaves with ribbon stems.|
|I love these clam shells.|
|More reverse applique (upper left) and fun quilting. The double binding is cool too.|
She does all her fun quilting on a domestic machine.
I don't want to overload a post with too many photos, so this is to be continued........
