Natures Face Art is Gerhard's business - from where I acquired a number of patches in 2012. I've often pulled them out of my stash and wondered how they could be incorporated into a quilt without being overwhelmed or swamped by the additional fabrics. Our October retreat was where they were combined with my hand dyed, printed and rubbed fabrics using a log cabin block - and we left the blocks on the design wall overnight while the final configuration was "ummed" and "aghhed". Do I mention having to reverse sew it twice ..... as I unpicked the first line of wrongly placed sashing, a dear friend was heard to say something like "don't you hate it when you re-sew something and you put it back wrong .. again!". Well ... the second time I unpicked it no one said anything. At last there was a last column of sashing to attach ... and now to contemplate how to quilt ... many thanks Gerhard for your beautiful fabrics and photographs.
