This year, as well as my usual brand new Beginners' class, I am offering a choice of two projects - The first one is called Home is Where the Heart Is and is a gentle introduction into designing a quilted piece of work based on a location close to the heart - we will be covering the elements of design in a reasonably simple way, leading up to the creation of unique pieces of work.This course was inspired by this little quilt that I made last year
which in turn was inspired by this quilt that I made for a friend from a Gloria Loughman pattern.
My second project I have named Topsy, as it's a quilt project that keeps on growing. It started out life in 2006 as a Christmas in July project.
Following the instructions for this quilt, it is possible to make lots of items, from mug mats to cushions & table runners to the actual quilt.But not in Christmas colours.
and as a variation on a theme,
and for those who want more of a challenge,
So, for me, at the moment it's lots of prep. Today, I made the Kaleidoscope block which will be finished as a cushion.Bee Blessed blocks for July/August - I started but didn't finish as I had no suitable fabric for the centres. Sad, but true.
Just as well I am off on a day out tomorrow that will take in rather a nice quilt shop..................
