Going Round in Circles!

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.

I found a multocolour batik to go with my purple and white.

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?

Happy Quilting!
