Workshops - my love of teaching, connecting and sharing ideas for you as a teacher

This week someone asked me what I loved most about teaching workshops, and I was still on the delicious floating high from having been teaching at a weekend of gatherings / workshops at beauty-ful Atelier 34. So I was in the exact heart-place to answer that question.

The Fearless Quilt : as story unfolding for life

The Fearless Quilt came to be quite unexpectedly, as does the nature of some things. Divine Inspiration, being open to the muse, listening & actioning, being guided..... or simply following along a path (however wonky & meandering it has been & will be) that you set out on some time ago. It doesn't matter how a thing comes to you, I think what matters is how to receive it and what you do with it, and where you take it, and how you hold it.

Day 1 :: Fearless Quilt

I'm going to call this my Fearless Quilt.

Because I am fearlessly doing it wrong,

Because I am using the precious special fabric,

because I am not measuring nor ironing (unless absolutely dire).

Because I am making it up as I go along, adding pieces here & there... some will be machine stitched together others will be hand sewn together. Some will have finished edges, others may have raw edges.

Because I am fearlessly hoping it'll be finished and ready to be enjoyed on our bed before Winter is here.... or even Autumn... could it be ready by then? 

 

Day 1 -- I have narrowed that I will use mostly only blues & whites, with just a few pinkish additions. I will see how it goes. I think I've already run out of suitable fabric; so I will need another indigo vat and to dye more pieces, scraps, remnants......    

but to begin is the best beginning >> without worrying too much about the end result, or the perfection of it all, or if indeed I have the right materials. Or more importantly if even I will finish it!
