Quilt Classes

I had so much fun taking a day quilt class! Lee Fowler came up from her home in Portland for Camano Island Quilters and taught us about Yin-Yang quilts and the value of value. It was one of those things I knew, but wasn't practicing in my quilts. Her website is and she is available to teach on the West Coast. This picture from her website shows what an advanced yin-yang can look like. The entire quilt is made of one simple block design. Can you find it? The value and colors do all the work here (well the quilter did all the work!) and this one even has striped fabric. Yikes! It looked amazing in person.
