    I'm intrigued by the squares. I have enough lady fingers now to begin exploring. I picked up these space ombres at a sewing expo, and I'm liking what I'm seeing. I'll be switching things around to find those squares.

      This should be interesting. Love your color combo.

    Hi Ricky, Hoping this looks like rolling hills of flowers. Will continue with the sky, clouds and sun. What do you suggest? Is it ok? Thanks Anna

      I'm super excited to see this variation! Well done - you are doing exactly what you described.

      A field of flowers for sure. Anxious to see the final picture.

      Looking good! Is this going to be a wall hanging? If so, then I would do no border with a facing. Whatever you decide will be great!

      I see that the picture is sideways when small and upright when clicked on. What orientation did you use when you took the picture? Did you hold the camera vertically or horizontally? (Love the blue and how your eye follows it.)

      Linda, you're colors are lovely. I wonder how it would be to corral the turquoise so they're all near the center. Can't wait to see where this is going.

      Congratulations Linda. The little pops of turquoise add great visual interest.

      How you use the lights in this will be very interesting.

      My colors are too close in tone. If I do this again it will be with brights

    Mine's done. Whooooooeeey. Need to add the border. I used my walking foot to put the rows together. I ordered the batik kit. It is square - photo is wonky.

      Look at you!!! - That's really nice! If you can for the final showcase, is it possible to not have it skewed at an angle? I just really want to show these off as best possible. I'm so proud of you for this!

      I'm loving the artful way you are creating the horizontal flow. Keep going!

    I posted (I thought) what is going on in the picture. Mostly African fabrics, some batiks. I am a bit discouraged at the moment, my husband said he does not see a river, sunset or the river bank. The river pieces are cut down in size and staggered across. The rest is normal. I still have a ways to go. It will be a wall hanging. Any thoughts our there?

      I love it...eager to see more. The river really jumps out with the darker ground around it!

      Whoo-hoo!!! - Be sure to put it in the final showcase with the best possible photo - show it to it's best advantage. It's going to be exciting.

      Your quilt looks great. Did you make it with the batik or ombré fabrics?

    Decided not to do the quilt, but am using the blocks to make my sister a coat.
    These are the pieces for the sleeves.

        The top is finished. I have no idea how I will quilt it yet. The working name is Window on the World. Thank you for the class, Ricky.

        I wanted to try a 3D effect. I used the Ombre fabrics. I loved the fabrics so much I had to buy them in yardage also. Never can have to much fabric. I used my Iphone a lot to check the values.
