Dancing with the Wall: Quickstep with Irene Roderick

I took a live online quilting class with Irene Roderick last week.  Over the course of a week, we were to create a two-color improv quilt top.  Take a peek at my progress:

And here it is all stitched together:

I'm quite pleased with where I ended up, even if I did end up grabbing a third color.  Rules were meant to be broken, after all.  You can see that I completely dismantled my design between photos 3 and 4.  It looked too much like houses or silos or something recognizable.  I wanted something truly abstract.

I haven't determined whether I will actually finish this quilt or if this was simply a really good design exercise.  Either way, I'm very glad that I took the class.  It was great to be a student on zoom in order to understand how to be a better teacher on zoom.

Thanks for stopping by!
