It's a wrap

The Judy Newman weekend workshop has come to a close, and some beautiful things have been accomplished. When compiling these pictures from todays class, it's become evident how eclectic every persons block is and how this all starts from one fabric choice. From there, it grows until the fabrics choose themselves, (along with a nudge from Judy). We've seen some beautiful finished quilts from Mary-Ann and Carolyn, and we've seen some fantastic starts to new creations. Thank you Judy for coming to teach, and for everyone who wanted to learn. What a great way to spend a weekend!

Sue and her Mayfair block that includes beautiful Art Gallery and Kathy Doughty fabrics. Sue's nails almost match her fabric choices, so I wonder then if choosing her fabric was a conscious choice or does she naturally tend to choose those colours?
