Today I'll just share the fabric combinations that everyone brought to class yesterday. I am worn out after this busy week and didn't even finish answering comments yesterday.
I had my camera with me when we laid out all of these blocks and then I forgot to take the picture while we were talking.
This lady dyed all of her fabrics. She is going to be opening a quilt shop about 10 miles from here in a few months. This was her first quilt class and about her third quilt. She is an accomplished seamstress as in clothing sewing, something most of us have given up as we got into quilting.
Another star student who finished her top in class. She has a border fabric in mind that sounds perfect.
The camera liked the yellows in this quilt but they aren't quite that predominant in person. This is an example of low contrast vs. the high contrast in the one above. This pattern works well with most combinations of fabrics.
It has been a busy week and I'm dragging but I hope to work on my colorwash a little today. I'll try to document the changes I make and show them tomorrow.
