My latest workshops have produced some lovely work. I conducted a colour wheel workshop in March, as I feel it is very important to go back over colour every now and again. Colour is so much fun to work with. We started off with 9 4 x 6in blocks and picked out colours we wanted to work with. There was a challenge to use a colour you found you didn't like or use much and experiment with. We then looked at contrasts across the wheel and embellished the blocks to add other colours that are next to each other. This photo was done by one of my students Margaret who really enjoyed doing this piece. It is a beautiful addition to her work room.

In April we worked with photoshop and learnt a little more on software to help us along with useing photos in our quilts.
