Exciting Times for Linda
Linda is excited about teaching her Fireworks in Flight class again on the Academy site, but also that this quilt just won Best Embellishment award at the Best of the Valley Quilt Show and Best of Show at the Alameda County Fair, as well as acceptance into the New Quilts of Northern California at the Pacific International Quilt Show.
She’s also very excited to be teaching this class in person on a Quilt and Cruise in February 2018! 15 days to four islands in Hawaii, then Ensenada, Mexico, as well, leaving San Francisco February 26 and returning March 13, 2018. There are four days at sea each way, which gives you lots of time to work on your quilting project. Linda will be teaching her Filament Fantasy (also a class at the Academy) and her Fireworks in Flight classes. Here's a link to the all the details and prices for the trip: www.pamstravel.net.
One interesting thing about all of Linda’s classes is that you get to experiment to your heart’s content with all manner of intriguing techniques, and with this particular quilt, you can add as much bling as you like! You play with foil and foil glue, foil glitter, gluesticks, thread painting, Tintzl and Angelina fiber, Misty fuse and crystals to create your own, personal and private fireworks display in any color scheme that suits your fancy. So, if you take this class on the Academy, you don’t have to leave your sewing room, but if you take it on the cruise, you get to go to Hawaii, as well!
About Fireworks in Flight: Let’s make a recreation of one of those nights with a dark black sky, your favorite city in the distance, with all the metallic threads and crystals and embellishments you never get to use on your day-to-day quilt projects. You will get to play with machine embroidery, fancy threads, foil glue and foil glitter, Angelina fiber, metallic thread snippets, Mistyfuse and more. First, you’ll make some samples, then create your own Fireworks Finale Masterpiece in your own colors and design, then quilt, embellish with crystals and beads, add piping and bind that into your own miniature fireworks explosion. Come on, let’s make Skyrockets in Flight! Read more....
