More from Kamloops - Project or Process?

The second class I taught for the Sagebrush Quilters in Kamloops (after the Ripless Tulips workshop) was Quilting with Fat & Fuzzy Threads.  Students learned about thick threads to stitch 'upside down' - these threads are wound in the bobbin. They also learned several ways to use fuzzy threads in their work.

Here are a few sample photos.

Bobbin Quilting Samples - Razzle Dazzle thread and lots of texture here.
Seaweed (red) and texture added to underwater scene.

Fuzzy threads couched on the surface.

Testing a range of stitch options for couching. The 'yarn' is shown at the top of the picture.
This was a 'process' class - students didn't make a project.  Instead they made samples and recorded their results so they can refer to the samples when they want to add sparkle or texture to a future project.

Which do you prefer? Process classes or project classes.  Drop me a note and let me know. I'm interested in your preferences as I continue developing new classes.
