Picture it - Gee's Bend Class

I think I will let the pictures speak for themselves.  The classroom was full of creativity. All of the people in the class were friendly and willing to share both supplies and knowledge. Enjoy the art from our class.

 Okay, I just had to say - Yes I did do some hand quilting! There I am with Cherrye (classmate-right side of the photo) and China Pettway of Gee's Bend (on the left.)

She may kill me if she sees this - look at the blocks behind her....she was in a serious discussion. 
Hopefully tomorrow I will show you some of the things I made yesterday after getting back from the class.
If you are interested in the class, it is listed at  Alabama Folk School  I don't know when the classes for next year will be listed.
