Classes on the EQ7 cruise

Classes on the cruise – I took one on photographing quilts from Gregory Case. I took two from Mary Ellen Kranz and three from Barb Vlack on EQ7. As I wrote in the previous post I recommend all three of these instructors. No sewing machines on this quilt cruise, we brought laptops and cameras. Both Mary Ellen and Barb brought supplies for final day small class projects. I wasn’t able to participate in Mary Ellen’s notebook project because that was when I had the photography class, but the examples I saw were really neat.

I did make two photo/fabric postcards in Barb’s class. I need to trim them (I don’t know how I got the white in the one, but I intend to cut it off) add backing and binding. She had us select a backing fabric from the EQ7 fabric library stash and print it with the postcard pics on top. That way none of the fabric (an 8 x 11 sheet of fabric that can go through a printer) was wasted, as I can use extra pieces for the fused binding.

I had lots of fun and learned new skills. These  are my two fabric postcards designed in EQ7 from pictures I took on the cruise --- rather these are the pictures of the designs, then Barb printed them for me and I need to finish them with an interface lining, backing and fused binding.
