Building Easy Piecing Borders and Quilts-Step OUT of the BOX and Stretch
I am always talking in my workshops about your stash and what you can do to build it up for better quilts _see my website Marylouweidman.com for some fabrics for sale that are good lightgivers and black and white magic in your quilts.
Since I am doing my retreat soon (beginning of June) and also going to California, West Virginia, Tulsa, Arkansas, Idaho, Washington, Illinois, Texas, Tennessee, Memphis and Alabama, I thought I would show you advanced blocks for easy piecing that anyone can do with a little know how. I like to say (in gest and humor) "anyone can make a perfect traditional blocks and it takes no how to make an out of the box block like these". I like "clear" crisp designed fabric with "light" in them for successful quilts....this is my signature. I came from an art background and think this is a great help in making successful quilts!
SO, if you are coming to one of my workshops or you have one of my books, you too can make these great blocks with a good pallette (stash) some value and some invention. They are fun and cool!
AND by the way did you see that I mixed different styles of fabrics together and just because you have chicken fabric does not mean you have to fussy cut to get the whole chicken in...it is more interesting to just cut them up....like when you cook them. :0)
