Here's my completed version of "Interwoven" which is an optical illusion design made by foundation paper piecing. This was designed and taught by Helen Butcher of Little Patch Pockets. Helen is a great tutor, and I'd been on a "Block Party" workshop with her at Kis Quilting Ltd last year, so when I saw that she was doing another workshop at Sew and So's I just couldn't resist siging up! Helen is a great tutor, and her geometric designs are brilliant. Helen has a great selection of patterns using her designs on her website. Her patterns are extremely well illustrated, with lots of detailed instructions, so after the workshop you're able to complete the design at home without too much difficulty. This was machine quilted very simply in straight lines (although some are a bit wobbly!) and I used a variegated green King Tut qiolting thread. Once the quilting was completed, I used a dark orange batik for the binding, and added a quilt sleeve to the back. I used a Moda grunge spot in green for the backing, and if you look carefully you'll see that was one of the fabrics used in the front too. When we're back to normal again, going on another one of Helen's workshops is definitely on the top of my list of quilty things to do.
