Aunt Mary Students Trying Something New

 Don't you just love to learn something new?  We have had some really great classes this quarter that lets you do just that.  This picture is one of the projects that was done in the "Fractured Quilts' class that was a few weeks ago.  This one is Cathy's.  It a great example of taking a really different fabric that you don't know what to do with, and seeing what will happen.  She's going to keep working on it.  It's going to be a stream. Looking through the water at the rocks.  I can't wait to see it finished. 
 This quilt is our good friend Denise's project.  She loves outer space.  Great affect! Donna taught this class and the girls had a great time.  I think it's allot of fun to not really know exactly what will happen in a project.  So much of art is playing and just seeing what will come of it.  I know this is hard for many students.  But if you can just accept that you don't always have to be in control, and get into just PLAYING.  You can be amazed at what will happen.
Here is a class that will be this Saturday with the great Stephanie Davis.  She is all about playing!  This is the "Stacked Coins" class.  You will be quilting without a pattern!  Wow!!! But so cool!!!  There is still room.  Maybe YOU could use some playtime?
