Wonderful! Super to see all the different ways that colour is used. Thank you Barbara and participants.

Amazing that they all came from the same general pattern and very nice to see how each quilter individualized the project.. So much better than seeing hundreds of exact copies as happens with some other quilt-a-alongs.

Thanks Miss Pat. I think as a teacher trained first as an art teacher I want to encourage people to follow their own creativity. I can provide the drawings (which many people just can't do) but they provide their own sense of color, composition and needlework skills. It's a happy combination.
