Improvisational Patchwork with Denyse Schmidt

I was one of the lucky individuals who got a place in Denyse Schmidt's class, Improvisational Patchwork with Denyse Schmidt at the New England Quilt Museum.

After a few mishaps, which included leaving my power cord and sewing machine foot at home, I got started and made some great progress.  The staff at the NEQM kindly searched for and found an old machine for me to work on. Soon after, the ever-supportive DH brought my cord and foot to me!

Denyse brought a bounty of scraps for us to work with.  The first block I made is in the bottom left of the photograph.  We were to bring a favorite fabric.  I brought one of my truly favorite prints that I bought years ago which features a geishas and wheelbarrows of flowers (by Judie Rothermel).  After that, she had us create blocks, adding in our favorite.

I am quite pleased with how it came out!  I am working on adding a few more pieces to square things up to make a small wall quilt for my sewing area.

This is my second class with Denyse.  I took her String Pieced Zippy Purse class at QuiltCon.  I use the bag daily to store my chargers.  It was nice to show it to Denyse! 

See what Denyse is up to on her website:

And then see what everyone is up to on this WIP Wednesday!

I love scrappy quits; I find them very freeing, no right or wrong and yours look great!
