J. Michelle Watts class

I recently, actually on my birthday, went to a class taught by the national author and quilt fabric designer J. Michelle Watts. What a great experience for me. She is so sweet and down to earth. Even though she is known throughout the world by quilters and fabric designers she is a very humble person.
Above is a photo of the project I did in her stenciling class. We were given different patterns to use and taught how to transfer the images to a stencil and then paint the fabric. I chose to shade my image.
Then we were taught how to design our own stencils. The result of my designs are shown on black fabric with a silver paint and another with green paint.
