I'm talking about a Windham Collection from a few years ago that keeps calling my name, and I pull out the bits and pieces left over from the stash. Cream and Sugar by Ampersand Design Studio has all the colors I enjoy sewing with. These fabrics are from the summer of 2012, so I know they're not readily available in shops.

The center is a covered button and I attached a pin to the back (but I'm too shy to actually wear this).
And another view . . .
Oooohh. Do you like that quilting from the back? What does it look like from the front? See below.
Then I made a really crazy table topper using my favorite shape: hexagons. The crazy part is the bling of ribbons that I inserted in those seams. I use this as a machine quilting sample in my workshops.

This is my teaching sample showing how four of these blocks (with the 1/4 unit turned 180 degrees) creates the illusion of 5 blocks (where there are only 4).
