Been to Gordon Harris, raided the shed, raided the stash - can see a direction taking place. Think I'm under way. This theme is creating interesting colours for me. Not ones I usually use. Happy creating everyone.

Yes Get on with it!!

Ha I'm the same as Ashleigh, although I have stuck with my initial idea, i just need to get sewing!I have done some initial prep of pieces which are my main focus points but am really worried they will be too big for a 12x12 to look as I wanted them to! might look even simpler than I had initially thought!Ha definitely a challenge!!
The international challenge group have now posted their next colourplay 12x12 using the colour Spice - some interesting quilts & some even more interesting explanations of how they designed their quilts!!! Squares seem to always get me so I really like Kirsten & Gerrie's quilts with their lovely bright colours, & Helen's.Also the landscape done by Francoise & the simplicity of Diane's Burst of Flavour....well & .....I could probably just about list them all! Some interesting ideas & techniques!

time to get onto it

After a few two many thoughts of what I will do for family and none of them seeming to work, I have now decided that I have to bite the bullet and just start on something. I think I have a good idea so will make it my long weekend project.
