We were so impressed with Sharon Hughes colourwash work at our meeting in December 2021 that we asked her to do a workshop to introduce us to the technique. The pre meeting preparation notes from Sharon were excellent and we rocked up with our 2½” squares in a variety of palettes.
Sharon showed how she chose which fabric to place where…and made it look easy. It wasn’t so easy when we were faced with our own squares. However, we all helped each other with sharing fabrics and giving each other the benefit of a fresh pair of eyes (you know how it is, someone new looking at your work makes a suggestion which makes a huge difference).
Sharon then showed us how to “web-piece” the squares together, another step on from chain piecing. We might have some done for the March meeting. Sharon's web piecing steps.
