You can’t judge a book by its cover, so they say. But have they seen the books and covers made in the Miniature Wooden Books class with Daniel Essig? Using mica for a cover, or wood that has been sanded, carved and painted with milk paint, these 2″ – 3″ tiny treasurers were then showcased by creating small special displays, some of them including 100 year-old cedar shingles from an Island house.
A visit from the quilt class gave a chance for the book-making students to share their pieces, cover-to-cover.
If you’re under the covers, you might be under a quilt, and who wouldn’t want to be under one of these special and vibrant ones? In Ellen Graf’s Drafting in Quilt Design class, excellent technique is taught along with skills of drafting to bring your design ideas to reality.
Some of the students brought a few blocks or strips of tiny blocks sewn together as a start, some came with just an idea and some came with show-and-tell pieces. We were wowed as those blocks grew into what you see here!
Again this year, we followed this (and the Landscape ‘Painting’ with Fabric class…coming up in a later posting) with an Open Quilt Studio, giving students the chance to stay a few more days and work on finishing their sewing or to start something new.
We hope that anytime, Sievers has you covered!
