High Sierra Quilters and take a class from Carla Barrett. (You can follow Carla's blog "Feathered Fibers" by clicking here) I was scheduled to take this class last year, but it was post-poned. At the time, I was very disappointed, but now that I have another year's worth of practice and quilts under my belt, so to speak, I'm actually glad. Now I'll be that much more confident and feel as if I can maybe take a stab at some of the designs and designing ideas she'll share.
I don't remember how I first heard about Carla, but it was back when she was doing her Quilt Whisperer Wednesdays. I had a particular quilt that I just couldn't decide how to quilt. I sent her a copy, she "whispered" all over it and I had some beautiful design choices to choose from. Since she's not doing that anymore and is in the process of writing a book, I'm even more thrilled to be taking this class from her.
This is a picture of the quilt I sent her with her design idea that I followed. I actually had several to choose from, but this was perfect.
