Evening at the pond workshop! And a very beautiful day!

I attended a paper foundation piecing workshop taught by Sobana Sundar Ma’am at the Tsala Studio last Saturday. And I had a wonderful time!

Sobana Ma’am taught us the Evening at the Pond block from the Dreamcatcher quilt pattern by Patchwork of my Life. The block initially seemed super complicated to me, but Ma’am showed us how to make it come together easily!!

Thank you Vatsala Ma’am for creating such a lovely space!  The studio is  bright, spacious and airy. A perfect place to sew. And the work displayed here is truly inspiring.

Sobana Ma’am’s complete quilt! It’s just amazing! You can see her work at The Quilt Bug.

Learning from Rukmini and Naveen was so much fun! Naveen showed us a really quick way to peel off the paper. Without his technique it would have taken me ages!

A friend asked me “Went to Bangalore just for a one day workshop? Isn’t it too far?” My response was “It was totally worth it! 😀 ”

Me and my block!

After getting back, I tried paper piecing using this simple free pattern.
