Here's one of my first blocks made from the feedsacks: It is perfectly imperfect and so quick to make.
I cut into two of the feedsacks last night in class and woke up this morning anxious to add some of the other sacks, so I could begin to see whether or not they're going to play nicely together, so I made blocks from two more. Here's my first dozen.
It's unlikely the blocks will end up in anything like this straight set, but it's kind of interesting to see them side by side like this.
In a class like this, where everyone is starting with fabrics from their stash, it's always fun to see what everyone else is using. It turns out that quite a few of us are working out of our comfort zone--across the table from me, Karen is using pretty, soft water-color-like fabrics and Mary is using some fabrics from a baby print line--including a panel that may end up on the front or as some kind of back art.
Nanci is showing off someone's blocks made from CW repros--I loved the shirting fabrics she was using.
Here are some of the other colorways from the group:
This is one of a set of brights with black & white prints, which would probably have been my usual choice ;-)
There were two or three students at each table, making blocks from dramatically different colorways.
