Map Maker, Map Maker, Make Me a Map!

This is the title of the 2 day workshop I taught for the East Bay Heritage Quilters in Berkeley, CA a few weeks ago.

I had such a good time with the ladies. In addition, I got to do the touristy things, like see the Golden Gate Bridge, Chinatown, ride the cable cars, etc....... Everyone was so helpful and friendly.

During the course of the 2 day workshop, I introduced my students to techniques on making 2 kinds of fabric maps. One was of an imagined place. The other was of a real place -- the Japanese Tea Garden. Here are a few images.

This was the Japanese Tea Garden -- I made this as a sample for the class.
