While on the quilt cruise, I took three different classes. Two of the classes were more technique and the other was a class where I left with a finished quilt!
The first class was an exercise in embroidery. The purpose of the class was to make a Victorian purse. (See bottom left of photo-all items in this photo were made by the instructor, Kathy Kansier.)
I have little to no embroidery skills so this was a fun way to learn about how to make some traditional stitches by hand. I can see where these skills could be valuable and I’m glad I learned them!
I didn’t finish my purse, there was just so much else going on!! I did get some of it done…
I actually got more than this done, I don’t seem to have taken a more recent picture. She included in our kits a fusible map of Panama since this was one of the ports on our trip.
The following photos depict the work of Kathy Kansier.
I really liked her embroidered journal covers. I can certainly see myself making one of these!!
She brought some lovely crazy quilts. Here I could really see the fun of using embroidery stitches.
And a heart…
It was the trip of a lifetime. More to come from my other classes!
