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.

Today I am putting borders on my Rattlesnake quilt top ahead of the class I am teaching on Saturday.
Now I'm wondering if I have time to make some more blocks using ordinary patchwork fabric as the batiks are printed on poplin, a very tight weave originally made as a hardwearing garment fabric... remember school shirts anyone? And patchwork fabric is more loosely woven and easier to handle.
But I love the colours.
