Welcome! This is where I will be continually adding updates about my latest Angles quilts, me and my new life as all of them unfold.

I am so very much looking forward to teaching Angles Workshops again. My computer is full of designs just itching to be 'made real'.

My classes are fun-filled, creative and relaxed. Both my students and I have so much fun and knowing that this is where I am meant to be to fulfils my life passion of teaching and sharing lots of tips and ideas, it feels so right.

Check back for regular updates on classes, the variety of designs I'm working on and much much more. I will be uploading a free Angles project shortly.

Go have a look at my new web page – it’s been freshly re-vamped and has been given a whole new look - http://www.anjiisolomon.com/

Stay tuned for more as I update my web page with the full Class List

Love and Hugs

Well it's still Friday in Adelaide vbg Last week I helped Cyndy, a long time quilting friend of mine, layout an Angles quilt that she began at a workshop I taught a while back. Most workshops will have one student who wants to make a bigger quilt than the class sample. The quilt I was teaching was "Prizmatic" http://www.anjiisolomon.com/prizmatic.htm but Cyndy wanted a quilt for her QS Bed so she bought 4 times the amount of fabric on the requirements list plus a fudge factor!! Those who have taken an Anjii's Angles workshop with me, know first hand the design potential of the Angle units and how many quilt designs are possible by simple twist here or turn there!! I love it when students create thier own quilts from the class sample - there's no desire on my part to have clones of my quilts - ever.!!

Well these are a few of the options Cyndy and I came up with for her quilt. Keep in mind that this in only half her quilt but you can see how 4 of these will create a very stunning quilt that as I said to Cyndy, 'I was prepared to change my bedroom curtains for it' if she didn't like it once it was finished!!!

The photos don't quite do the quilt justice - it's a very deep and sultry collection of fabrics in burgandies, soft lettuce green and dusky pinks

The above layout, kept the dark squares of the four patches crossing diagonally with the dark burgandy Angle units forming a loop-de-loop with little pointy ears - don't you love my ability to descirbe so creatively what's in my head - be worried, very worried!!!! The above version still has the loop-de-loop but I turned the units alongside the diagonal 4 patches. This version is the same as the first example but with the 4 patches all turned so that the green forms the diagonal. This brings a star into the centre of each quarter and also there will be a star in the centre of the quilt plus on the compass points into the border which she has decided to piece with rectangles filling in the gaps like on Prizmatic has with the half square triangles. This has been a fantastic big step back into Angling and quite honestly, I couldn't wait for her to come over and take it off my design wall so that I could start with a quilt myself. Well, I'm off for some beauty sleep as it's past midnight. Goodnight cyber-world - sweet dreams

    Angles are fun.. umm maybe I am getting a hankering to do another one. My Irish Lanterns One is greatly admired by all, although it only comes out at Christmas.
    I love the colours of Cyndy's quilt.


  2. Hi Sheila, thank you. I remember the excitement of you and myself when you made your glorious Irish Lanterns for the book.
