After working with neutral fabrics all week, I need some colour !
I signed up at Craftsy
for a class with Kaye England
quite a while ago, at the time I played the class through and found that Kaye approaches quilting from a whole new angle. The one thing I took from the class at the time was NO PINS ! after trying this I found that I actually love NOT pinning. Believe it or not my points match better. Kaye is featured in Quilt Mania's
latest issue, after reading about her I was curious to review her class again, this time I thought I would make the quilt she works on in class and try her methods. No Pinning and no Ironing the blocks until they are finished although she does finger press as she goes. (But not much) For me it has been really hard to resist the iron! I am still not so sure about that part, but I have found Kaye's class to be full of great information and it has been really fun to make these blocks and much faster then running to the iron all day long.Kate is such an inspiring lady, with a contagious personality. I am so glad I did this class with her.
Take a look at my blocks, ( I apologize if these pics are a bit blurry as I have had to take them with my phone ) I have totally randomly chosen the fabrics and color scheme. ( another little test ) I wanted to see how color works when you don't try too hard to control it. I am amazed at how easy it has been for me to let go and play. Also how much fun I have had.
I challenge you to take test. NO Pins........ NO Iron.........and No controlling the color !!!!!!
Would love to have you comment on what works for you!
