Quilt Camp 2010, Part Two
This is one of quilt teacher Cara Gulati's quilts. This one is not in her book. In it you can see 5 scrolls and 5 ribbons. She taught us how to draw both the scrolls and the ribbons, but I chose to use only scrolls in my design. I'm not really ready to publish a picture of my quilt, since it's still unfinished, with only three of the five scrolls even sewn together. But I will show here my line drawing. This is the one I did standing up, on four taped-together sheets of drawing paper. Then I took it to a copy store and had it enlarged 100%. The center design section of the quilt measures 48"x60". I plan to applique it to a backing fabric--not black as in Cara's quilt, but a very dark blue batik. The third picture shows Carolyn working at one of the high tables. Behind her is the cluster of three tables where Carolyn, Carole, and I worked. At the far rear of the picture can be seen a portion of the fantastic Creations fabric store!
