A Workshop

I don't do workshops very often - I usually puzzle things out on my own but just sometimes it's nice to join in with others to learn something new.  This time I went with one of my groups to Mittagong, about 1-1/4 hours south of Sydney (depending on where you live) to Village Patchwork.  I have to say we had a fantastic day, doing both foundation piecing and curved piecing.  This is the block we did:


There were eight (yes!) sections to the central part of the block and then the four quarter-circles were added.  Mine was made pretty much according to the colours in the shop sample because I had only returned from Canberra the evening before and I knew I had a lot of the fabrics already.  The block did take a while to construct and if I want to make a quilt I have to do 12 more like this one.  If you want to see how I've progressed, I suggest you watch this space in no sooner than 12 months' time, LOL.
