Cutting and cobblestones....

One of the kits I am cutting for my colorwash class is African fabrics.  I saw a colorwash made with African fabrics in a catalog a few years ago and I have been meaning to do one for a long time.  I am a little over half done with the cutting now.
After digging, dividing, and potting more hostas I needed some mindless sewing.  I am making these with the new fabrics that I cut for the batik kits for my class.  It is more fun with a fresh batch of fabrics.

I think the color wash with the African fabrics will be interesting.

Hi Wanda. Can't wait to see the African color wash - mine were so pastel I can't quite imagine the darker colors. Do your cobblestone blocks have a pattern - a specific size? I'm thinking of doing one with some scraps, but not sure how to start.

I also want to see the African fabric colorwash piece after it is assembled. You know I am another one who loves those African Dutch wax prints.

Oh yes, these fabrics are sooo inspiring!

I have '2' hostas. This will be their 3rd spring and they are still a little bit 'ween-ee'. They are on the North side of the house but I think last years drought just about did them in. I kept them watered but I think the wind and the heat stunted their development. They have come up and are now about 4 inches tall.....I am hopeful.....

Those colors look interesting! It will be fun to see how they work up in this quilt.

I'm always so intrigued by the African fabrics so am really looking forward to seeing how your colourwash quilt develops!

I've long subscribed to the idea that value trumps nearly everything else, including color and pattern, and I am floored by how distinctive those African prints look in a color wash arrangement.

I never would have thought to do it. Another brilliancy by Wanda!

Sort of like coloring with a new box of crayons? LOL

Hi Wanda,
I probably should be digging and moving hostas, too, but haven't started yet.
Love those African fabrics and can't imagine how gorgeous that's going to look!
Also, cobblestones are looking great. Are some of those light batiks translucent, or is that just a mirage?
