July Journal Quilt

Quilt Routes

I really wasn't sure if I was going to make the deadline for this one.

Quilt Routes

I have just delivered the pieces that will be on display at The Quilt Association's Summer Exhibition, 'Welsh Connections'.  I had wanted it all to be new work but in the end I had to include some older pieces because after my little accident last year I simply lost the time that I was planning to spend on them. There will be photos eventually!

This JQ has been done on a piece of fabric that I painted with normal acrylic paint a long time ago and if memory serves me correctly I was just using up paint that was left over from something else and I wanted to see how they would feel on fabric. It feels good to finally put it to use.

It looks better vertically than the correct horizontal format but I am just pleased that I managed to get it done on time. Now I can get on with my final preparations for Festival of Quilts which is just over a week away.

Until next time...

Join Me!

Quilt Routes

I am teaching Quick and Easy workshops again at the Festival of Quilts next month. 
For once I am ahead of the game with the kits. I am doing a Golden Hare this year, just to mix things up... NOW FULL.

...and a mini Poppy Field demonstrating how to create these poppies. NOW FULL.

For the Sunset kits I have provided strips of my hand painted fabric to create this mini scene and there is a pile of extra strips should anyone want to add a different look. 
Two out of the three class are full with a final one at 3.30 on Sunday still having a few spaces left. 
When I saw the timetable I knew this slot at a time at the end of the show when most people are beginning to think about going home was going to less popular but how about instead of rushing off you spend a nice hour, taking the weight off your feet, while I share tips for creating landscapes and and show you a number of my landscape pieces.
Oh and I will be wanting to giveaway all of those extra strips!
Hope to see you there!
Until next time...
