Marine Time

He always comes to class with a set idea of what he wants to create, even down to the colors that he wants to use.

I know my students, so I always make sure that I have what I call a rainbow pile in the scrap box, which has in it something for everyone.

He likes the texture and design of the wave landscape patchwork technique and his mother likes practical arty gifts so he decided to make a zippered pouch for her.

He sewed a small piece and then quilted it.
