Some time ago I booked a workshop at Paulines Patchworks in Dorchester tutored by Jan Hassard, called Dazzling Diamonds. I've admired her work for a while so I was keen to take this class. As it turns out it was a relief to do some sewing. There was some homework to be done in advance joining strips of colours 36 colours in all, 6 colours in sets of 3. Unfortunately some of the fabrics chosen were from fat quarters so I cut them fat quarter width, even fabrics that were width of fabric and I had to join strips up before adding the additional black strips to the which took a bit of time.
Sorry, a fuzzy picture here but starting to arrange the cross cut strips on a board.
It was also interesting to see different fabric choices too, these are some of the other ladies and a clearer pic of mine, one the left in the right hand photo
