I did the Sliced Circles workshop on Saturday - what a lot of fun! You start by appliqueing circles onto your backgrounds, stack em up, slash 'em and shuffle 'em around. Play with different layouts, stitch 'em back together, and before you know it you have a new quilt top!
|and yes, that is a hole in the middle - I've got plans for it!|
Since Saturday was the night of the "Super Moon", and these look decidedly moon like, I've decided to call it "Lunar Eclipse". Once quilted, this will be put up on my wall - I'm really liking it! I'm looking forward to having some fun with the quilting on this one.
Sunday's workshop was "Colour for the Terrified Quilter" based on Ionne's book of the same name. Another excellent workshop where we learned the ins and outs of colour, value and intensity. Fascinating stuff, and I learned a lot, which I will hope to be incorporating into my quilts in the very near future.
It's Tuesday, so that means The Needle and Thread Network's WIP Wednesday post is up. Head on over to check out what some other Canadian Crafters have been up to.
