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.

A Quiet One
Not everyone shares my passion for bright colours so I thought I would make another sample in quieter colours, less contrast, not so shouty, and am surprised by how much I like it.
The strips were from Kaffe Fassett, beautiful designs with subtle colour combinations, but printed on poor quality, soft, loosely woven fabric. A complete contrast to the batiks I have been using, and tricky to work with. I found greys from my stash to make the backgrounds; it measures a bit under 17 inches so would make a stunning cushion cover.
