Moon Gazing Hare

I have been working on upgrading the packaging on my Art Quilt Kits. The first one to get the treatment is the Moon Gazing Hare.

I am now using a brown card envelope which is much sturdier than the plastic I was using before, which means that the contents is better protected, and also means that they are now very suitable to give as gifts.

I also now provide each kit with just about everything you need to complete it (apart from thread). This means that as well as the hand painted fabric, template patterns and instructions, I also provide the iron on fusible, wadding, and backing fabric, which means that even those people who don't have a cupboard full of supplies can complete the kit.

Having done this I do hope that others can take my kits and put in their own spin, because I am all about people making things their own, and with that in mind here is one more photo for you.

Moon Gazing Hare kits now available here and here.

Away Days -teaching

Here is the proof that I have been teaching "overseas". A picture out of the car window whilst on the ferry.

I visited the lovely ladies of Vectis Quilters on the Isle of Wight, some of who you can see above.
I talked to them all about my work and the following day gave my Play With Paint workshop.

We tried out of lots of techniques for getting interesting effects on fabric using textile paint.

It was more of the same with North Somerset Quilters.
