Well, last Sunday I was at my Kaffe Fassett workshop and what a great day it was. Not just because Kaffe (and Brandon Mably were there) but just because I spent a whole day doing something I enjoyed with like minded people.
We were designing a "snowball" quilt, which is basically just squares with small contrasting corner squares, which gives the illusion of a round shape, hence "snowball".
These are the fabrics I had purchased beforehand and I cut them all into 6" squares, to save time at the workshop
Well of course, they weren't all suitable so I had to purchase more fabrics when I was there! Honestly, I have enough left over squares to make about 10 cushions (which I think is what I will probably do, rather than make another quilt).
Here is my quilt before the "corner stone" squares were added
and this is it with the corners added. The photo doesn't give a true colour, the small squares are quite a vivid red batik
At the end of the day, the man himself critiqued everyone's quilt. He was very complimentary of everyone's work. He loved the rich blues and purples of mine, and the red added a dramatic touch ... like "Cruella de Ville's nails" Lol!!
Needless to say, I haven't even started sewing it together!

Have a great week everyone.
