The class with Terry Waldron was really interesting and inspiring.
She is a wonderful artist who knows how to free you from your preconceived ideas about quilting.

She had us cut squares of batting and cover them with different fabrics (crazy quilting kind of way) to use as a background and then free hand cut a vase on freezer paper to use as a template for the fabric to be appliqued on this background.

You then have to add branches, flowers and leaves, everything cut out without a pattern, using whatever fabric inspire you.

Examples of her sample :

I am still piecing my background so no picture of my work right now, but it was for sure an eye opening class to create your own piece of art !
