Jelly Roll Workshop
Yesterday I went to a Jelly Roll workshop taught by Jo of Puddleducks, Sevenoaks.
She visited us at Quay Quilters, Faversham and brought some delicious fabrics with her. I succumbed but don't feel a bit sorry. In the present climate building a bigger stash doesn't seem too bad an option. We had a choice of patterns to make. I'm very pleased with my bright batiks on a navy background; several people had the same roll and it was fascinating to see the different effects. The construction method was a bit tedious compared with the other patterns involving drawing diagonal pencil lines and sewing pieces at right angles but I think this pattern suited my fabrics best.
