The first class was called "The Big Easy". Ricci said it was a lot of fun and easy to do. She only made 4 blocks and turned them into a table runner, instead of making a large quilt. I saw others who made this same quilt, using fat quarters to make each block a different color.
The second class was called "Fractured Chrystal's". Ricci worked on parts of this today and got the main large blocks completed.
She put the sections out on her design wall, pinning fabric up that is being considered for borders.
Most of Linda Ballard's quilts are traditional. She has a wonderful catalogue with pictures of all of her patterns. You can see her things on this site: www.letsquilt.com or you can write for her catalogue at Linda Ballard 22526 Bridlewood Lane Palo Cedro, CA 96073-9524 (530) 547-3461
While I was at Ricci's house I saw a new doll over in the corner of the storage room. The "Fabric Diva" has been in storage, and Ricci just brought her out. A fun doll Ricci made several years ago.
Ricci used a necklass left to her by her grandmother, and the ring is from an earring left by grandma too.
Notice "Fabric Diva" has a tatoo on her...umm.. cleavage. That Ricci.
