Without Pins is the title of my Patchwork classes. I am a Quilter, textile teacher and general fabric collector - or does it come and find me? I like to play with colour and subvert pattern by the use of tone. I have always sewn and stitch something, somewhere, every day.

Fame at Last!
They've put up my pic and instructions for making a Bookwrap on the
wordpress bookwraps site here!
Playing with tiny triangles today, just trimmed 50
of the little blighters, put in a new blade halfway through and wondered why I
didn't do it sooner... I am planning to make Farmer's Wife Star Gardener block.
I laid it out on the table and it didn't look right:
I realised I had the half square triangles rotated so the dark was where the light should be.
I started to turn them round, then found another interesting combination before arriving at the correct layout.
I just hope they don't all get mixed up again when I sew them together or I'll have yet another version...
