July 2015


Well, that’s my classes finished for the summer!


The next ten week course starts on 15th September, can I remind everybody that Fairkytes has a new system for enrolment. To enrol for the courses the form and payment have to be completed and taken to the office before the term starts – preferably before the end of August.  


I have completed the ‘Woven’ quilt! this is a double sided quilt-as-you-go design made up of twenty five squares. As double sided this means in the last six weeks I have made fifty squares!!  I used up fabric I had in my stash, some fabric pieces were only enough to go in one square, so it is a real collection of different fabrics. I showed all the elements over the last few weeks of the term, as a project to work over the summer. But I wanted to get it finished before I went on holiday as I know that I have a lot to work on after we get back.  And if I didn’t finish it, I would tuck it away and it could be ages till it maybe got completed!!!


Other than the quilt I have been working on the Gate series of postcards, three more completed for birthdays and Father’s day. Also designed another four! How many gates can I create?


And finally my Rainbow Hexagon quilt is on the front cover of the July edition of Popular Patchwork, and then the instructions are on page 18. Already making the next hexagon quilt…
