I just want to tell you in advance my camera …. needs to be thrown out. First I forgot to take the program off MACRO, so all my first set of pictures are fuzzy. I was able to re-shoot lots of pictures but they will still need editing. When the seminar was done I reset the entire camera to factory default. I had been afraid to do that earlier because I was afraid to mess up the settings worse then what they were. The settings were fixable in an editing program. The only thing I have trouble with is out of focus shots ( that was why had I had to reset the factory settings) but the focus settings had been messed with and I no longer knew how to fix the setting. I think this will work. WORD TO THE WISE NEVER LET A 5 YEAR OLD USE YOUR GOOD CAMERA…. give him an old one.
I will be posting more pictures after I edit them. the main edit will be re size to a size this blog will accept. So enjoy.
This photo was printed from a 60 inch printer on to fabric on freezer paper. Ricky then FMQ accentuating the photographs. He used shadowing to maintain the integrity of the shapes. Everyone stopped to admire this wall quilt.
ONE SEAM FLYING GEESE Ricky said he made this 3d- ONE SEAM FLYING GEESE QUILT. HE taught this technique on the quilt show. I have made some of these quilts for kids, but I used larger flying geese units and novelty prints. Kids love putting little toys / treats in the pockets. It is a fun quilt. If somebody wants I will post the directions to the quilt I make using this technique. I have directions to multiple size geese and a rectangular block. LET ME KNOW IF YOU want me to post the directions.
Ricky and his father made this RHAPSODY QUILT Ricky’s dad made the lone star quilt and Ricky finished it with the applique and innovative setting. This is what happens if you let your imagination run wild and you push your boundaries.
Ricky demonstrated the technique used to make a KALEIDOSCOPE QUILT. This is my daughters and grandson’s favorite pattern. I made a kaleidoscope wall hanging which now hangs in my grandson’s room. (See LOGO) He threw a fit when I tried to take it down from the wall to take to the seminar to have Ricky sign the back of my quilt. He can be so BRATTY!
Shantel Tulip a caveman piecing technique shown during the seminar. He also has a DVD that teaches this technique is greater detail for people like me who have no memory and need constant reminding/ prompting on how to do a technique.
