Getting Wild On a Rainy Night

Yesterday, I posted about a class on Craftsy that I found very intriguing.  It is called Wild Quilting. I was really planning to wait for a month or so as I have a few extra expenses this month (car tags, homeowners insurance, medical copays, etc) But I was so tempted.   Then I remembered a "savings" type account that I hadn't looked at in a bit. I had the funds there, so I did it!

I am writing this the night before but scheduling the post for tomorrow morning, so understand that when I say: It is a rainy night with potential for some storms.  This new class is taking my mind off the "what ifs."  This class is causing me to feel as wild and free as the rain and winds.

I am loving the way Christina teaches this class. I could hardly wait to get to the sewing machine and start quilting.

The first lesson is titled Divide and Conquer.  It wasn't what I wanted to do, but I did want to go in order so I learn the basics first.  So here is my divide and conquer quilting.
I am most proud of the leaves in the second row from the left.  I know they aren't the prettiest part, but they scared me more than the other parts I did.   One of the designs is my own improvisational quilting design, based on pebbles and echoes.
Now I am ready to move on to the next lesson, where she says we will "take off the training wheels!"

I am off to watch the next lesson and quilt even more wildly!

Ooooh, I have to get going to catch up with you - I'm still on Lesson #1 of her first class. And I understand your fear of "leaves" - I feel the same way about "meandering" - ;))
