As I have mentioned before I am taking a quilting course online at Quilt University. I did my second lesson over the weekend. It was very indepth regarding mixing the dye paints to make all the colours such as yellow- orange, orange, red-orange etc. Needless to say, there really is a difference to all these colours and it was quite an experience being able to create them myself.
The first two lessons were the hardest. Now we get to use these techniques to play, which is the reason I signed up for the course. Lesson 3 consists of stamping, monoprinting, and stencilling. I look forward to doing those over the next week.
I have included a picture of my marbling sample, and we put it in a gallery so the instructor can make comments on our work. This is what the instructor said about my piece:
Your marbled piece is superb, Jackie! May I keep a copy for the class gallery? It will always have your name on it so you get the credit for a job well done.
The class gallery she is referring to, is the gallery that goes with the course outline when people are searching the Quilt University website.
That made my day!
