In August, I will be attending, and teaching at, the Stitch Gathering, in Edinburgh.
I think this will be the first retreat get together of its kind, in Scotland and I can't wait to meet up with blog friends that so far I know only in a virtual way. My little class is to be on Crazy Quilting, a very traditional technique but we will be giving it a modern twist. I had been looking for an excuse to buy one of the Ikea Dolls' beds and this was the perfect one. I put together a little quilt made up of 4" crazy blocks, each one sticking to a colour family, and each one stitched by hand.
The little quilt measures 18" x 13" and was hand quilted using embroidery floss, and then embellished with colourful buttons. The binding was done by machine, I have my limits.
Making this little quilt and buying the bed has launched me on a new journey.......to make a pile of little dolly quilts so that when my grand daughter is old enough to understand the Princess & the Pea, she will have her own real life scene from the fairy tale.
Linking this to the Festival. Thanks to Amy once again for organising such an event - I got a bit confused at voting time last time but think it may be a bit simpler this time around.
Thank you for visiting.
