Quilt Symposium, Auckland, October 2019: Chris Kenna’s Wholecloth Mosaic class

4 10 2019

I’m at the Auckland Quilt Symposium, where I’m taking classes for 4 out of the 5 days. My first class was a 2-day class with Chris Kenna (a New Zealander), doing a wholecloth mosaic using her techniques. Our class supplies stipulated a 1 m x 1 m plain piece of fabric, and most chose white, off-white, or black as their background fabric. Almost all the class participants worked at this scale, though a couple varied it by using a rectangle of fabric.  We didn’t work from any pattern, instead making up our own designs. Below are the photos of my project in progress, Chris’ two magnificent pieces (both at least 2 m square), and all the projects done by the class as at the end of Day 2.
