Shop Samples, a Bit of Show and Tell, and Class Talk

Yesterday morning, I spoke to the art class at the high school where I work about quilting. It was very enjoyable as you can imagine to talk about one's passion. The idea was to talk about how you repeat one block to create an overall graphic design, to be followed by the creation of their own quilts on paper, so I brought some examples, showed some examples from my laptop projected via an LCD projector, and showed some designs from EQ as well:

Stars Around the Garden class was last night; here is a new shop sample in Little Quilts, "Glory Bound" by Bonnie Blue Quilts:

Here is a beautiful quilt that will be given as a Christmas gift:

I see you started to piece the triangle units. What a great idea!

I am so glad to see that you use NYB instead of log cabin blocks for your talk.

You opened my eyes with these examples.

I bet you planted the quilting seed in more than one of those high school kids - what fun *s*

I am sure the kids really jumped on that. Did they design anything we can use? LOL!
