one down, and 15 more to go!

 I have always been a big fan of red and black.  When I went to work I remember "power dressing" to impress, with a black suit, and a touch of red.  My fabric and clothes cupboard are still full of red and black.  Sooooo.....I went and bought some more red and black.  These are a selection of the fabrics from the Scarlet Evening range, byt Judie Rothermel.
I wanted to make the quilt for Penny's workshop on the 29th November, at McLaren Vale.  I was thinking I would use Kaffe fabrics, but thought I would see how these looked.  I am happy with it. The background is Moda Bella "Figtree Cream" and the cheddar is also Moda Bella.  I had these both in the cupboard left over from previous projects.  Yes, I have a little way to go yet, and might get another one made today.

If you would like to join us on the 29th, please contact Penny and book your place.

Or, if you have done a workshop with me in the past, and would like some help to finish it off, then you can also come along.  Morning and afternoon tea is provided, and bring you own lunch.

Ok,. now back to the sewing machine, and packing!  Of course, nearly forgot......tomorrow I am off to Melbourne for the Aust Quilt Market.  I am taking along all my Karen Kay Buckley products, and hope to meet some new customers.

Will post some photos once we get set up.

Edit - I just made another block, and this time I timed myself - 45 minutes to cut, sew and press.  Pretty good really.  it is nice to know how long it will take to make the whole quilt.  I used black with a red print this time.  photo is not clear, and I took it several times.  must be time for a new camera!

  1. Your blocks are looking very interesting Wendy. If the modern quilters can use modern fabrics to give old blocks new life why can't the Reprolovers use old fabrics to give modern blocks a new look!
