July 2018

Well, that’s another month gone!!! And it was a busy one! We completed the wall hanging for the National Quilt Championships and got it sent off in time – its back now and we got a Judges Merit. I am really pleased it got something, not for me but for Laura, this is the first piece that we have worked on together. A lot of thought and planning went into all the quotes and vignettes and Laura spent a lot of time hand embroidering all the letters and creating some of the vignettes. Hopefully we will work on other projects together.

I actually completed three quilts this month!!!  The Circles quilt had its final borders and binding put on. Then I completed the Modern version of the Drunkard’s Path and turned it into a quillow. And finally, I completed the Spider’s Web quilt (read all about it in the Member’s section!)

I also managed to create seven quilted postcards and complete the tapestry that I started before Christmas – I just need to find the right colour fabric to make the back and I will turn it into a cushion. You would think with all the fabric that I have in my cupboard that I would have something that would work? But no!! actually, I do have a piece that goes but it isn’t big enough!!! So, I will have to buy something that to create the back.

The classes are over for the summer and I have a couple of months off to create stuff for me and also start on all the ideas for the Autumn term and Christmas ……..

(remember I regularly post on Facebook!)
