This one was made with very tiny log cabin blocks - they are either 5" or 6" blocks.
This one was just the way I like them, lots of pieces and really scrappy.
The lattice colors of green and black were really unique and set these blocks so well.
This one is on my to-do list for sure.
I love blue and brown together.
A close up - bow tie blocks with 4 patches.
This one was absolutely a show stopper.
And a close up of it:
But THIS one was my favorite. I love blue and beige together. One really good hint was that she sorts her fabrics by whether they are a 'color' or a 'neutral'. You can see her range of 'neutrals' in these pictures. She said when she is using background fabrics, she goes from very light to 'paper bag brown'. I tell you, she surely knows how to play with color and value.
See how gorgeous this is up close. I would love to do this one also!
Some of them lined up afterwards:
She gave so many tips as to cutting your scraps into usable widths, how to sort your scraps so they are ready to use, color and value tips, and gave me a new appreciation for my left-overs! Her philosophy regarding quilt making was very inspirational. It was a wonderful way to spend an afternoon and if you get the chance to hear her speak or are lucky enough to take a class, please don't pass up the opportunity. Check out her website and her blog too! I am thankful that our guild brought her to visit.
