Having not blogged very much lately, I haven't really spoke about my Fat Quarterly retreat experience. To sum if up quickly, I had the most fantastic time. There was one class that I took that stood out for me as the most valuable, which was Judith's photography table top session.
The one thing that resonated with me the most was that we spend so much time making beautiful quits etc and then take a crappy pic in bad lighting etc which does it no justice. My pics of my latest quilt were taken with all of Judith's advice bouncing around my head and I think the difference shows...
A little fannying around in Photoshop Lightroom and hey presto!
I used a Kona classics roll up and was roughly (read badly) following the Cluck Cluck strip and flip tute
I quilted wavy lines with Aurifil variegated thread in 50wt (4670) and bound with the Architextures crosshatch and a little bit of Summersville.
Backed in Ikea - no surprises there then!
