Today Tuesday Quilters had a workshop taught by Janet Crossley. We worked on a 'Circles and Triangles' quilt of easy and quick blocks made by piecing half square triangles in contrasting colours and then fusing circle on top. I chose a dark purple and white fro the triangles and a multicoloured batik for the circles. Janet brought some samples to show us:
Everyone worked very hard and we got loads of blocks finished! I love workshops like this because it's fascinating to see which colours everyone has chosen. I always think they have made better choices than me!
Here are just a few:
Norma chose lovely warm colours.
Jean had gorgeous oriental fabrics.
Janet chose creamy yellow and raspberry to tone with her focus fabric.
Sue's green and black triangle were a perfect background for this beautiful floral.
Mandy chose vibrant batiks in purple and lime.
As you can see it was lots of fun! I'm really looking forward to seeing some finished quilts - will they be ready for show and tell at the next meeting?
