Day 1 of Fraktur Class with Susan Feller

It was a very long day, but wow, what these women accomplished was amazing!  Susan did a great job of talking to us about Frakturs and some of the history of them.

We all looked through lots of books and we even received a box of drawing templates that came with the class.  Next step was to decide what we wanted for our rug. 

It was amazing how the patterns came to life on the foundation.   Susan had each person show their pattern and tell why they chose the elements that they did and if they had a story behind it. Here is everyone with their rug.







This was Genny's



Patty's (she even started hooking hers!)

Another Patty (hooking hers too!)



Never got a picture of mine. It wouldn't have shown much. I have some Lettering that needs to be put on there and Susan said she would do it tomorrow.  I will pick the style of the alphabet that I like.

Tomorrow will be color planning. I look forward to that.   It worked out that we left early tonight, so I'm glad that I could get these pictures on here now. I would have hated to do 3 days at once! 

Hoping to have more pic's to share after some of the hooking actually starts! I have found the class very interesting and inspiring.

Linda has done a wonderful job of holding the class and taking care of everyone. Thank you Linda!
