Sonie Comes to Town

My friend Sonie Ruffin was our guild speaker this week. She taught a workshop for 20 lucky guild members.

We each got a packet with several piece of fabric dyed by a group of children living at Saint Mary Kevin Orphanage Motherhood in Kajjansi, Uganda. A friend of Sonie's often brings back items when she visits the orphanage. Sonie bought the fabric for us to use.

She also provided templates for 2 improvised style blocks - one made of triangles, one of rectangles.

Sonie showed the group how she made the blocks but she stressed there are no rules. That's my kind of workshop!

The rectangles blocks look like this:

Sonie made a quilt with her triangles blocks (to be finished).....
