October wrap up

This month we had guest Krista Hennebury from Poppyprint do a trunk show and 2 workshops for us.

We collected and awarded the Wedges as Topography blocks and we're going to be working on some more wedges for next month.

We also have lots of room in the new location for show and tell.

The first workshop was "Round Peg Square Hole" which is really a study on piecing accuracy to assemble a log cabin variation pattern with emphasis on secondary pattern. Participants each only completed a few blocks, but together the group created enough blocks to really show off the options from this workshop.

The second workshop was completely different - "Speed Date with Improv" uses Krista's "Improv under the influence" techniques founded in traditional skills to create a small improv quilt. By limiting the palette to black + white + one color and using a timer to timebox techniques, choice is limited to a level where even someone brand new to improv can succeed.
