When the Hideaway charm packs and layer cakes came in I knew I had to do something with them (this is getting a bit of an issue as I feel like this about most of the fabrics!). I am teaching a squares for beginners course on Mondays evenings which starts tomorow night and wanted to make up a sample using pre-cuts rather than fabric off the bolt. The course gives lots of options of quilts – from just squares to stacked squares to a nine cut and mix/disapearing nine patch quilt (or whatever you may call it, I have heard lots of variations) as seen below. As often happens with quilts, the hardest part was getting an even distribution of colour. I am rather pleased with how I managed to get the red spread across the quilt – lots of chin stroking went on though! I often take pictures on my phone once a top is laid out as it helps give a different perspective. If it is really tricky another option is to convert the photo into black and white so only the tones show.

There is still one space left on the course – email me if you would like to take it.
