The colours are actually a lot brighter in real life
I seem to have rather a lot of black fabric outside of the frame. I could trim this off and add a border as Carrie has done, but I've decided not to. Here is another look at Carrie's quilt.
I've named my quilt "Fade To Black". Primarily because of the excess black fabric but also as a nod to the bushfires currently raging across Tasmania. When outside your window a red glow shines beyond the nearby hills and the air is full of smoke, quiltmaking can be a good distraction. My thoughts are with those who have lost everything in these horrible bushfires.

So ends Quilters Academy Vol 2. But I'll not be diving straight into Vol 3 just yet. As they say, it's not a quilt until it's quilted and I have 5 quilt tops lined up.
I'll blog my progess with these, but despite having quilted over 50 quilts and having attended a 3 day Quilting Master Class, my quilting skills remain rather basic. This is because I don't practice! I will really try this year to make the effort and spend at least 10 mins a day practicing free motion.
