I went to Asilomar to attend a 5-day class taught by Gloria Loughman. This was the 2nd time that I'd traveled to California with some friends to stay in the beautiful Asilomar retreat facility and take a class from a well-known teacher.
What a great teacher and such a great class! She had us all make a small quilt using her pattern so that we could learn all of her techniques. Then we worked on our individual quilts based on photos that we brought. Since she makes her living teaching her techniques, I'm not able to tell you everything that I learned, so I'm just showing you some pictures. If you get a chance to take a class from her - DO IT. She is wonderful!
Here is the practice piece that I made:
And here are some of us having fun in the evening lecture.
I hope you get a chance to take classes from big name instructors too!
