Easter wishes

Sending Easter wishers to you all in blog land    He is Risen, He is Risen indeed Alleluia


Now for a few more photos, these are by the contemporary quilters group, a branch of the quilters guild. Each member did a series of 12 pieces, 4 yellow, 4 red and 4 blue but they only had room to display 3 of each colour.  Sorry the photos are so poor but they give you an idea,  if you hold the Cltr key down and scroll with the mouse on the photo it will enlarge, at least it does on my computer, not sure how you do it on laptops or on the phones that have internet,   far too complicated for me!












I also bought some batik,   it was in bundles of 10 fat quarters so got the blue/green range and the orange/yellow set



the bottom photo is not true to the colour they are not quite as wishy washy as they look! Now I have these fabrics added to the stash, wonder if   or when  I will ever use them.

Happy Easter Sunday,
Do you mean that each member made four pieces in three colours? 12 pieces? WOW! Some of them are very detailed.
You got yourself a lot of lovely batiks. Use them for bags or cq blocks.
Have fun!

I love having new fabric, you have some wonderful colours. Thank you for sharing the contemporary quilts what a variety.
Hope you had a lovely Easter. I may not be able to get the internet for a while.

Monica said...

Oh yes, you will use them! Plus, you'll have an idea to use them, but then you'll need some others to fill it out, and then you'll think of more ideas for the extra fabric, which will necessitate even more fabric...

Anyway, happy Easter!
