    After attending yet another workshop this is what I made.
    It still requires the pinned areas to be stitched back in place to give the appearance of movement on the quilt.
    I'm not too sure as to whether I should use varigated thread if I can put my hands on some to match the fabrics I used - or should I go with a thread to match the background colour.


    Many Thanks :wink:

    Thank you Beachlady - I love my selection of colours however as I was cutting out the strips & blocks I was having second thoughts. Then once these had been put together I thought to myself - yes Tisha you made the right decision.

    Thanks Loretta

    I would love to have a bash at a full size quilt. In actually fact the quilt is only made up of 4 different blocks. I managed to get all the blocks made whilst at the workshop but had only sewn three of the four patch blocks together.
    I quite fancy one made in Red, White & Blue. It just needs to be the right R,W & Blues.

    its so beautiful.

    variegated thread would be great and you could even do some beads or buttons to really highlight the folding work.
