Creative Quilting

Finally had a chance to try out some of the Helen Godden techniques I learned in Utah in June.  At Handy Quilter Academy I took a couple of classes with Helen.  She's Australian and her work is amazing!  Goggle her. You will be so inspired by her work.

Here is my meager attempt ...


And ...


Yes - that is all done with thread. I had the patterns from her book enlarged.  The patterns that I did not have with me when I arrived at Office Depot to have them enlarged.  I did finally get there, with the patterns. I traced them lightly with a pencil and then did lots of stitching.

Not bad for a 2nd attempt.  I've been doodling some other shapes and  will get quilted soon.
