Thimble and Thread Crazy Flag Quilt Workshop in St. Louis

St. Louis 117Because it was the July meeting the Thimble and Thread Quilt Guild ask me to do my Crazy Betsy Ross Flag Workshop. It was a wonderful bunch of eager learners. They brought their red, white, and blue fabrics and I showed them how, without a pattern, to “make fabric” crazy quilt strips and borders, and pieces. And then turn them into an original flag quilt, wall hanging, or table decoration. I hope they had fun I had a blast. Here are pictures of the class members and what they accomplished.st. ws 1 st. l. ws. 2flag 1flag. 2flag 3St. Louis 117

    I enjoyed the “Folk Art Flag” workshop with Jim here in St Louis! His technique of creating fabric out of scraps and letting the creative, artistic side of yourself be nurtured and set free is a concept this quilting novice can and will embrace. Jim is a very good teacher who is personable and is right in there with the group giving hands on instruction as well as group demonstrations. Lots of great conversation and camaraderie was abound. I wouldn’t expect anything less from a fellow Razorback. I had a wonderful time! Thanks Jim!

    Jim, your workshop was wonderful! The words freeing and liberating were used quite often. Thanks for sharing your skills and techniques for creating quilts will allow us to create new items that can be loved on and shared for years to come.
