Roundabout Again...and Again!

Here's another top from the workshop finished up and ready to quilt!  This New York Roundabout Again was made by Colleen Gander who travelled with her friend Delia from Ontario to attend my workshop at Fibre Arts Festival.  Colleen hadn't planned to send a photo until she had this beauty all quilted, but I coerced her into sharing now. (And no mistake, Colleen - we will want to see it again when it's quilted!) She shot it early this morning and the colours are a bit skewed.
I took some of the yellow out in Photoshop, but it still isn't quite right.  Colleen used a delicate red and white toile for the centres.
Thanks, Colleen;  I never met a red quilt I didn't love and this one is no exception.  Looking forward to seeing it quilted!

  1. Wow, you are fast. Thanks for the finessing with Photoshop as that is a skill I don't have. I have to stay put long enough to get the quilting done now.

  2. It's beautiful Colleen, even without being quilted. You must feel so proud.

  6. Colleen, that is beautiful - congratulations on a job well done!

  7. It's so pretty, Colleen. I love that colour combo.

  8. Colleen,
    Your reds are so cheery. How coud anyone feel anything other than happy when viewing this work. congratulations it is lovely

  9. Colleen,
    strong work and strong colors! Love both. Like you I think I would need a workshop to tackle this very very complex looking project. I just think travelling from Sask to there for a clinic seems a bit crazy.
    Looking forward to seeing the finsihed project.
    I bet Karen is an awesome teacher. I really like her blog style, her volunterism and her outlook.
