Yesterday I taught a class at Sue's Sewing World here in Adelaide.
They neaarly completed the background fabric - creating their own unquie raw edge strip piecing. Next week the students will add their motifs to complete their new textile works using these methods. The students enjoyed their day as I did too.

Sunrise this morning from my bedroom window
A dash for the camera and in the street in my jamas
It was a stunning sight - the sunrise not me!

Enjoy - think I will have to do a Textile piece with one of these.
