June 2018

Well, its already June, the sixth month of the year, half way through!!! I will have to start thinking, I said thinking!!! About Christmas makes – Quilted Postcards, decorative gift hangers and gift ideas to teach. I have already been asked if I can come up with some ideas for quilted hot water bottle covers. It is just thinking at the moment, I won’t actually start creating Christmas ideas till September – towards the end!!!

I have only finished eleven Quilted postcards in May, all inspired by Jacobean Crewelwork embroidery. Other than that, I have been working on the Circles quilt, just a couple of borders to finish and put on and then the binding. As I have been using it to demonstrate different bits in class, I needed it only partly done for the last morning class before half term and then I haven’t had a chance over to get it completely as we have been away for a few days….

And I am working madly on finishing the wall hanging for the National Quilt Championship, I need to get it completed and then send it off, to be there for the 13th June!!

I have also been working on Drunkards path blocks, both the classic piecing and the modern way of making for the classes.

As well as needlework, the garden has been taking up my time!!! it’s a really lovely source of inspiration for some of my Quilted Postcards!!!

(remember I regularly post on Facebook!)
