In May 2014, about 15 persons, including young teenage girls, attended the second training course for art quilts at ECPAT in Quezon City. Many of them did not have any sewing experience at all. These were all hand-sewn and hand-quilted. I was informed that three were already sold!
Will be working with the girls at ECPAT, Quezon City, from 14 to 22 May again! I really look forward to checking up on the progress of their sewing skills, and to introduce new methods of wall quiltmaking. 10 samples were produced, and the classes will be grouped according to their skills. We probably will have a beginner class, plus an intermediate and advanced class for those with good hand and machine skills. This time, some new themes have been designed, inspired by life in the Philippines. There are many, many more themes that could be tapped, but that is another story...
The 10 designs posted here are titled VINTA, and you can scroll all the way to ALIMANGO.
Any feedback is most welcome!
