I Spy a Garden

Last week I visited the Seymour Quilt Guild in North Vancouver and taught a design class entitled "I Spy a Garden". In this class students work with hexagaons and traingles to create landscape style designs.
they begin with a sketch and then use the hexagon shapes to build a garden or landscape, incorporating ideas about value, colour, and perspective.
I think they did extremely well and had fun judging by the amount of chatter fabric trading that went on.

We were entertained by a 'tap, tap tap' throughout the day and found a friendly woodpecker building its nest on the outside of our meeting space. Everyone needs a home!
