these 6" x 6" patches will be the corners of my Fun Times cloth.

I really like that everyone was a winner :)

Gorgeous Deanna - I love the effect of the fme with the added hits of colour.
I bet SS2 will be amazing - I'm not in it as we will be traveling for half of the time... I do so much better in the classes when I can work along as it happens - I will love seeing what you do though!

Just adorable. I even like the four together and can envision a whole piece with squares like that. Neat!

Dear Deanna, you have inspired me so much that I signed up for the class. See you there!

Hi, Deanna. You're getting gorgeous effects with these patches. Very light and elegant. Karen's classes always sound so enticing.

Lovely texture..Have you used any stabilizer underneath the cheese cloth ? It looks neat and crisp..I'd like to know whether it's because of lots of stitching or a stabilizer underneath...Please do share it with me...
