Colourwave Workshop with Jan Hassard

Colourwave Workshop with Jan Hassard
Colourwave Quilt with Jan Hassard
I have been on a quilting workshop today with Bristol quilter, Jan Hassard, at Busy Bees Patchwork in Newport.  Here you can see the blocks I completed today pinned to my design wall.  It was a great day where we got an insight into how Jan works her magic with colour, but as always, too short and you wish you could spend the next 48 hours completing the project.
Jan sent instructions beforehand, so that we could do most of our fabric cutting beforehand, which was great, as it gave us more time during the day to actually focus on the design and machine stitch some strips together.  I am using batiks for this project, largely from the generous bundle I won from The Objects of Design, over a year ago.

Along with this, my head is full of ideas of projects I want to do.  Dear Jane is keeping me quiet, but I need to catch up with my Miniature Block of the Month, I am making a quilt for our camper van, and I have quilts to quilt.  Also, I am finding it hard to settle as I am quite sure Bonnie Hunter is due to release details of her 2015 Mystery Quilt soon ....

  1. That's a change from DJ blocks. I think you're on to a good idea.......a three day retreat with a tutor on day one then two days to get the sewing done!

  2. Tommy was usually in charge of the giveaways, so he probably also picked out the fabrics. Let's give credit where credit is due. : )
