Have You Met My BFF?

Here's my BFF (Blog Fodder Friend) Susan Dear already adding hand stitchery to her art quilt. You go Susan!
I am one happy teacher! Our first day of class is complete here at Quilting Adventures and my students are remarkable! We covered basic fusing techniques in the morning by making a small art quilt.

To my delight, each quilt was imaginative and beautiful. In the process of  making the quilts, students learned lots about the fine art of fusing and how to apply it to their next quilt. They are moving up to the Big Time!
Kay's creation, a small art quilt improvised, original, fun.
Soon all my BFF's will create original quilts working from their own photos or sketches. We'll convert those original designs into fabric through the miracle of fusing. Because with fusing, you have the power!

(This report is from deep in the heart of Texas where I am learn to say ya'll. As in, ya'll come back tomorrow and I'll show ya'll more.)

Go Susan.

You are saying it with a strong Yankee accent. It is correctly said as y'all. (it is a contraction "you all" so the apostrophe goes where the "ou" is removed.) But still you are making a great effort! heehehheeee

That's funny. A virtual accent. Who knew?

LOVELY art quilt beginnings tho.

Thanks for the correction Gene. True that Yankee accent gets in the way all the time as does my lack of spelling ability, y'all.

The is Susan Dear - a native Texan! The joke is that the plural of y'all is all y'all!

It is great fun being in Laura's class! All y'all should try it!

Sounds like the start of the class is a big success and a perfect project to get their feet wet. Can't wait to see what they make for their original projects.

Y'all should also know that the resort staff has voted Laura's quilts their favorite. The girls in the back office went "SQUEEEE!!!" over them as soon as they saw them...future quilters perhaps???

Not sure what "SQUEEEE!" means but thank you.
