On Saturday October 3, 16 of us had a grand time doing a virtual workshop with Tara Faughnan learning how to build a Give and Take improv based quilt top. As the photos below show, there was an enormous diversity of results, and we had fun learning the technique. Tara did a great job checking around with everyone and making the workshop successful.
Eileen's work in progress. This shows how the quilt top is built from columns of various colors of fabric sewn together which can be set up to create concentrations of various colors interspersed with sashing (black in this case). The columns are different width's which Eileen's post-it notes at the top are identifying. Once happy with the arrangement, you then sew the strips together, and make adjustments as you go.
Here is Lori's top, also in progress using blue and green batiks and a light colored sashing.
Pat's top has a definite seasonal flair!
Ashley's top used a light sashing and she worked some triangles into her columns. She took her leftover fabric and made an improv log cabin, which also looks great.
