Things like this:
Jeannie Jenkins gave us a great demo about block accuracy. She had all sorts of tips about cutting fabric.
She showed us two quilts she had made with tiny Half Square Triangles.
Same basic blocks/motifs, but a very different feeling to the two quilts. Colour/value choice makes such a difference.
Here are the adorable blocks made by our members for April's block swap. I really love this pattern. Its Raspberry Kiss and can be found at the Wooden Spoon Quilts blog, if you are interested in making some. Lucky Rebecca won the swap, and made them into a beautiful little quilt that she is selling to raise funds to help those in Fort MacMurray.
And now on to the Show and Share portion of our meeting:
Wendy brought in this intensely ornate little piece that she calls "Effervescence". She made this piece with in an Al Cote workshop at the Etobicoke Quilt Guild, using a reverse appliqué technique that gives a lot of nice dimension to the piece.
One of the great things about quilts is that they have the potential to be a three-dimensional artwork, because the back is can be as beautiful as the front, as is definitely the case with this work.
