Using the same technique, Lynette's black and white strip sets became these blocks (displayed on a design wall consisting of the underside of a flannel-backed vinyl tablecloth):
Marijke chose pretty pink and cream:
Heather made a variation, with a narrow centre strip in earthy tones:
and a an equally gorgeous backing.
Marijke's still using her wedge ruler - here's Christmas table runner number 2. Nice fabrics!

Lisa is an award winning quilter and textile artist, maker and seller of hand dyed fabric and beads, and a very popular tutor. Her Sydney-based business is Dyed and Gone to Heaven, and her blog is Fibre Inspirations (both are now linked permanently in the right hand column)
Fifteen of us from both Monday and Tuesday groups had a fabulous day with Lisa yesterday, doing her Cut-out Magic workshop - we learned a lot, worked hard, produced the beginnings of some fabulous quilts, and really enjoyed the day. Thoroughly recommended. Lisa teaches all over Australia, and internationally, so we were lucky to have her for her very last workshop of what has been a busy year.
She has invited us to her first ever Studio Sale in Sydney, 28th-29th November - see the announcement on Fibre Inspirations for details.
Phyl chose complementary aqua and purple with good contrast, and she was careful with the iron!
Noelle chose a lovely combination of jade and mauve. We used tweezers to place the smaller fabric pieces accurately.
Elaine's background fabric is beautiful, and this design was her first attempt with paper, translated to fabric.
It took a while to "get" how to work out the placement of pieces. This is Georgie's lovely lolly pink on aqua, with the design just emerging .....
Elle didn't hesitate with safe and easy .... her design is stunning and she was quick!
