Design Wall Monday

Last week I participated 
in a fantastic workshop 
with Kathy Doughty 
in Brantford, Canada.
Have a look at the mosaic of my 
"Soul Searching" blocks

(pattern can be found in Kathy's book "Making Quilts")

What a learning curve,
mixed with lots of laughter,
great people & food.
It truly has been 
one of the best workshops 
I have taken!

The preparation for the class
made me appreciate my stash.
I loved to reacquaint myself
with a major part of my fabrics.
So if you ever have the chance
of taking a class with Kathy,
go for it!
While my blocks are not sewn yet
and 3 additional blocks
in green, orange and blue
are still in the making
the quilt already looks like a winner!

Linking up to 

Happy sewing,


  1. Hello Barbara. I read your post and it seems so connected. I was born in Detroit and grew up in St Clair Shores, MI. Then I married a Canadian and lived 12 years in Brantford, Ontario, plus a few in BC. But it was so ironic when I found your blog. I know you are not looking for a geneology report, so will just stop in to say hello to a fellow quilter1

  2. I really love this design, can't wait to see it finished!

  3. Your Soul Searching is looking great. I'm also making that quilt through Angela's Rainbow Scrappy Challenge-a block a month and I'm behind!

  4. You've gotten a lot done - The fabrics do pop when they have such variety. I see many familiar prints - happy memories!

  5. Your Soul Searching is lovely, aren't the blocks huge!

  6. Love your blocks. The colors just pop with the black and white!

  7. I went to the modern wedge workshop at the Red Red Bobbin on Wednesday last week. My friend Debbie and I had a great time. Your quilt is looking good. I may have to make that quilt too some day.


Thank you for your comment - you made my day!
