stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
I had a lovely play day at City Quilter last weekend, it was so nice to take a class, I’m usually teaching!
Leslie showed us a fab technique for creating quilt tops in a fast and improvisational way and this is the result. It’s a bit of a funny shape but I think it’s finished, it’s fine for a throw. I started off with a John Louden dotty mini roll (given to me by my friend Steph) and added some strips cut from fat quarters including the dark Japanese looking fabric which is called Brooklyn Heights, I’m intrigued as to why but it’s pretty all the same! – also a gift 🙂
This method is a great stash buster.
The darker areas were made in class and the lighter background was pieced afterwards, what fun, I couldn’t put it down.
Sorry about the rubbish picture, this is pressed believe it or not, it will look so much better when it’s quilted but it has to go to one side for now as I have another project that needs my attention. Can’t wait to see what the other lovely ladies made, I’m hoping they will post pics on Leslies blog.
ps If you see any ads here, they are added by wordpress. I’m deciding whether to upgrade so I don’t get them, are they a problem for you?
