Home from the Crow Timber Frame Barn

Whew!  I've just gotten back from two weeks with Nancy Crow.  It was inspiring, illuminating, eye-opening, exhilirating and exhausting.   A wonderful two weeks!

I spent the weekend before the classes and the weekend in between the two with my brother and sister-in-law.  Can you tell that Andrew is a Brown's fan?

The first class was "Lines, Curves, Circles and Figure/Ground."  We first made linear units, and then curved and circular units, and then put them together into a composition.  A couple of shots of work in progress:

Not a finished piece, but I hope to complete it this week.

The Barn is a beautiful place to be in the fall.  And we always got a very early start.

I need to photograph my quilts from the 2nd week, "Improvisations."  We made a total of 6 pieces, mostly small.  This is one of them:

It's good to be home, and time to get back to work!
