The class was full - 10 people. I love seeing how each fabric reacts to this cutting process. Sit back and enjoy the show and let's just hope that I get everyone's name right!
|Carrie's fabric - interesting lines. This is NOT her normal fabric - she likes brights - like ME!!!!|
|Carrie's blocks. Notice those BIG blocks of gold on the bottom left. And the movement of the light and dark lines in the other blocks. Very interesting!!!!!|
|Barb - wanted something watery - a good start for that effect|
|I know that she got more than TWO blocks sewn. For some reason this is the only picture of her blocks that I took. Definitely going to have that soft water feel to it!!!!|
|Bonnie's fabric. Nice contrast in colours and nice size of motifs.|
|Bonnie's blocks. It is so hard to know what type of fabric to pick. I think the motif size in this one was just perfect!!!! Lots of variety in the blocks.|
|Beth - do you know what these little fellows are???? Why PANDAS of course. Very cute!!!!!|
|The end blocks are not as defined as some of the others, but then the fabric Beth started with was not as defined either. I definitely think an accent border in red would be perfect for this one.|
|Bev had a VERY dramatic print to work with. High contrast between those luscious red tulips and the black background.|
|Gorgeous blocks (but then I do LOVE LOVE LOVE high contrast in anything!)|
|Shelley - a VERY large motif so we can expect blocks with one colour in them.|
|Hmmm - do you see what happened here???? The motif was so large that we have lots of blocks with one colour in them. And the beauty of this quilt is - THAT IS OK. there is NO right and NO wrong with this technique.|
|Rose came prepared with FOUR different fabrics and chose this one.|
|Which I think will be very successful. Notice the bright blocks and lots of blenders. It is going to be awesome.|
|Janet - BRIGHT as usual. This is a gorgeous fabric. I love it and might have bought some except it was all gone!!!!!|
|Notice how she has blocks that read as ONE colour. Again this is because her motif was so large that it filled the entire block for a "single" colour block.|
|Janet had a second fabric (from the same line). She is going to cut this and make "blender" blocks between the other ones.|
|Joan had SKUNK fabric. How cool is that!!!!! And she got it at my local quilt store. I think a little side trip is in order.|
|Joan's blocks. Now as we were laying the blocks out - we were having the discussion of adding cubes or not. I really think cubes will help to pick up some of the colours and give the blocks a focal point.|
|Anna's fabric. This is very cool - lots of movement. And what did it give????|
|Anna's blocks. I was very surprised that she got some completely dark ones, and some completely light ones. Who would have thought????|
It is late and I need some beauty sleep.
Have a great day!!!!!
