More chocolate-fuelled creativity from the English Quilt girls’ get-together last week.
This sumptuous wool-embroidered blanket isn’t something Gail just whipped up this month, but as a treasured creation of hers from a few years back it’s an elegant “show and tell”.
Rae is one of those quilters I really admire – a finisher! Here she is patiently hand-quilting her absolutely enormous Japanese quilt.
Anne and Jill enjoyed their stitching.
And so did Gail, our hostess. Wendi escaped before I could take her photo – next time, Wendi.
In other news, I’m making slow progress on latest hand-pieced quilt. Maybe it’s because of the sunglasses I need to wear when I work on it
Bright, isn’t it?
If I sound as if I’m in a hurry, I am. Di B and I are leaving Sydney and jetsetting off to the Melbourne Quilt and Craft Fair at 7am tomorrow, hoping to meet up with some friends I’ve only met on the internet! We’ve known each other for years, but this will be the first time we’ve met in person – such excitement!
I’m feeling so fancy-free I’ve made this little piece of frivolity to wear on my overcoat. Lovely Wonderland scissors fabric by MoMo, and one of my very favourite selvages.
Will I look like a quilter, do you think?
Perhaps I’ll team it with my selvage bag.
Watch out, Melbourne – “Team Di” is on the way (down and back in a day).
