Lovely Evening

Last night I joined Plum and Lesley at the Richmond and Kew Quilters monthly meeting.  I cant usually make it as it would mean leaving home at 6, and I work until just gone six, but this is school holidays!!!

Avril had arranged the speaker but wasn't able to attend - shame Avril, you missed a great talk.  The lady was one of two designers at Fabric Freedom, and she talked about how they put together the recent Red Rose collection - no computer graphics here, roses painted onto paper and sent off to the printers in Korea, and thousands of metres of fabric being printed.  She then showed us the quilts that have been made over the years to showcase each collection, and finished with very generously giving out fabric.

I was amazed how many of the Fabric Freedom fabrics I recognised as having used over the years ... and this morning I was finally tempted to open my rainbow jelly roll of FF rainbow fabrics
 I sorted the fabrics into cool and warm colours (with a few outcasts that didn't feel right)

and I am now making a log cabin ... pictures to follow when I get far enough
