FALLING LEAVES workshop

This is Kathleen's quilt that inspired me.Isn't it gorgeous!




I had the pleasure of taking a workshop with Kathleen Bissett last Saturday. Kathleen is an
International quilting teacher and is particularly well known for her "Leaves"
The workshop was so much fun and I nearly finished my quilt which is not something I usually do in a class. This one was so much fun. Layering leaves and then tulle netting 2 or 3 times and on the final layer 3 dimentional leaves were made and scrunched, then tacked in place with matching thread. You can see Kathy's quilts on the wall and see some of the students working on their quilt.Hope you enjoy the pictures and be sure and take a peek at Kathleen's work.

Thank you for the great photos and write up about the work shop. What fun you must have had. There is nothing more stimulating than being in a workshop/class with other excited students. The quilt is absolutely gorgeous. Thanks for sharing,

Hi Magpie!!! Oh I love these leaves quilts - what a unique and interesting idea. Lots of cutting, though -- yours is great - please post a picture when it's all done. You could really have a fun time embellishing that too - with beads, metallic thread, etc.
