 Fussy cut flowers and bold colors! FUN!

 Susan took on some paper piecing to make a bright lights, big city quilt.

 Ellie, did some fussy cutting and adapted her arcs for the swirl in the middle...

 Going for each piecing looking different and unique.... Great start!

Oakshott cottons, orphan blocks, a play on negative space, and some raw edge appliqué taking shape here!

A quilt started by a mom, never finished, a quilt top started by daughter, never finished... bringing the two projects into one completed... A great story telling quilt.
She took my summer class, in June, when I did the 15 Minutes of play class, and returned today to show me her completed quilt! Isn't it amazing?!! I just love it!

 Kay manipulated her middle shapes, to form a bold flower. Sweet!

 Lovely vibrant Kaffe prints and dots! It glows! I love it!

 Calista had a beautiful palette of golds pinks, oranges and purples... lovely.
