Rayna, meet Sujata

I'm a fan of Sujata Shah's book Cultural Fusion Quilts and have tried out quite a few of her block designs.  A couple of weeks ago, I started making some crooked hourglass blocks.

It didn't take long before I wondered where I was going .... I added RED to the mix, cut a bunch of skinny strips, and started to sew.  About four years ago, I took a two day workshop with Rayna Gillman (Create Your Own Free-Form Quilts).  I love playing with the skinny strips!  Over the course of the next week or so, I kept the pieces up on the design wall and played around with it once in a while.

Last week I finished the quilting and today I finished the facing.

I just took a 3 day class with Sujata and have some hourglass, windmill, and kaleidoscope units all over my design wall. Looks like yours is going in a great direction.
