Rainbow Reverb at Canberra

What a wonderful foundation paper piecing workshop we had at Addicted 2 Fabric in Canberra last weekend! Canberra turned on its most splendid Spring weather two weekends in a row for me. And everyone at the shop was most lovely and accommodating.

I incorporated two commercially available foundation paper piecing patterns to make Rainbow Reverb; the centre is Janice Ryan’s New York Beauty Circle of Flying Geese and the four Poinsettia Star corner blocks are from Beth Maddocks of Piece by Number.

Both these patterns are fabulous and a great way to conquer your fear of foundation paper piecing. All the glorious, sharp points came to life in a wide range of fabrics. I love seeing how students put their own stamp on a project. Can’t wait to see them finished!

Addicted 2 Fabric have an extensive selection of solids and an interesting range of patchwork and dressmaking fabrics. I picked up some gorgeous Echino and a Tessuti pattern to make the Eva Dress. I’ll let you know how that goes 😉
