There seemed to be several themes to the fabrics this time - really bold batiks -
Blocks of colour with lovely shading effects -
'Shabby chic' Moda Jelly Rolls were popular -
There were two Christmas fabric versions, the first one witha 2 1/2in strip roll and the one below that with 1 1/2in strips. The first has quite a lot of metallic gold prints that aren't Christmas themed mixed in, but it works very well together - a good way to eke out Christmas fabrics in a project too, if you were cutting your own pieces from yardage.
This scrap strip version also uses 1 1/2in strips. A big assortment of scraps definitely works best with the narrower strip width, like my original version of Super Strips.
This very stylish black, white & red combination is going to look great finished - very modern and fresh.
The workshop was combined with 'My Japanese Quilt Inspirations' talk last night. Thanks for a fun day, and I look foward to seeing photos of the finished patchworks - and showing them off here of course!
