Experimenting

Like Wanda and Julie, I also received Sujata's book in the mail recently.



And since I've got most of my Thanksgiving prep done, I decided to do a little experimenting.

Until now I've never done any work with curves, not even this "gentle" kind that are amazingly easy to do. Oh boy, I'm gonna have to eat my words. I LIKE these. I can see lots of these in my future.

Yep, I'm gonna have a lot of fun this weekend.

And OH! See that lovely blue leaves fabric? I am in LOVE with that fabric and bought yardage in five or six colorways. And do you see that I have CUT INTO it?  Yes, that is what you are supposed to do with fabric. USE IT!

It's only fabric, it isn't gold, and it isn't doing you any good sitting in your stash!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Love your block and your fabrics! The leaves are so rich. I am waiting ?patiently for my copy of the book in New Zealand, so frustrating after seeing the work by yourself, Wanda and Julie!!

I have that leaf print in 2 colorways too. One is dated 2012 and one 2014 so I guess this means it was so successful that they had to print in new colors.
