I'm chugging along with a few classes on Craftsy (all free! so I encourage others looking to build their quilting skills to check them out). The BOM classes that I talked about in my last post are great, but I started a new one that I simply have to shout about: the QuiltCon Lecture Series 2013 is awesome! No matter what kind of work you do with textiles, Amy Butler's "Creating Your Unique Color Story" is a must watch - her discussion of color and the creative process are both delightful and insightful. I also really enjoyed Heather Jones' "Everyday Inspiration in Modern Quilts" and sketched two new designs while I listened to her speak. For anyone who loves quilting but couldn't attend The Modern Quilt Guild's QuiltCon this past winter (you know, most of us out there ; ) this free series is such a great resource!
As for BOM progress, here's my adaptation of the February block using the partial seams technique from the 2013 class taught by Laura Nownes (the color is really off, though, and I don't seem to be able to get it right on camera... it's a bit lighter, more true orange and less red than it looks here).
