JaM Session ----a SUCCESS

From the general consensus we heard, our first JaM Session was a wonderful success.  The group started arriving as early as 8:20 AM and class officially began at 10 AM.  The room was a buzz with joyful conversation and wonderful direction from the maestro, Kathy Rentz.  She is quite the teacher and was ably assisted by Natalie Carlton, our local long arm quilter and proud designer of a new blog and website (  The projects were beautiful and I am sure you will enjoy the pictures that follow.  After all pictures speak louder than words to a quilter.  We are quite the visual group.  Thank goodness!!!


Here they are hard at work with irons, freezer paper, starch and then glue to make their coneflowers.DSCN0126-1

Kathy was busy helping a student during the day.  We hope you can see how wonderfully roomy the Session room is.  No one felt cramped.  DSCN0125 They sure look busy.  Everyone was so hard at work and now you will see their projects.  There are not two alike and everyone’s was so fantastic.  One even had a mountain in the background.  Most used Batiks but there was quite a few non-woven materials.  Also, some used different textures which made their piece look even better.  There were several black and white.  We can’t say one color dominated in the room.    DSCN0127

Okay I may not be a photographer but the projects are great.

DSCN0130Here is the last one.  We will be offering this class again.  It maybe in our small classroom depending on how many people are interested.  But you don’t want to miss learning this great new technique.  Thank you Kathy for a great day here at the Patch.DSCN0129
