What a fun day we had on April 25th with Dougal Walker in the Wonky Stars Workshop! It was a full house and many thanks to Barb M, Les O and Glenna W for making it happen.
The morning was spent sewing itty-bitty scraps and bigger leftover bits together to form the improv centres of our stars – no rulers allowed! By early afternoon, when the points of the stars were added, everyone had something colourful and unique to show for all the sewing. Along the way, lessons were learned in value and tone, and how to use asymmetry to infuse movement into patchwork.
After lunch, we were also treated to a surprise trunk show by Dougal… many quilts made from scraps that otherwise might have been thrown out. A clear lesson that, in fact, the more seemingly useless scraps you have, the more exciting your quilts may become!
