For our second workshop of the year last Saturday we brought along our New Life quilt blocks – almost 300 of them! - to stitch together.
Our improvised design walls, flannel-backed tablecloths clipped to two clothes racks, worked a treat, with the added bonus that at the end of the day the pieces of a quilt-in-progress could stay in place and be wrapped up to take home. We sorted our blocks so that the colours worked together - as much as crazy scrappy patches ever can, of course. Then we auditioned our sashing fabrics to see which one played best with each group of blocks. In the end we had four quilts on the design walls.
