Far too long between blog posts – life does get in the way sometimes. This week it’s off to Malvern for Quilts UK and then off to Heathrow for a second stab at getting to Jordan – if the volcanic ash doesn’t stop us again – so lots of stacking and packing of quilts, samples and clothes, printing of patterns and brochures, gathering of important stitching projects, books and so on.
Last week I spent a happy day with quilters in Leeswood showing them some of the possibilities from the Fast Quilts from Fat Quarters book – a lovely group of ladies (and wonderful cake) so I’m including some pictures here to spur them on to finish their blocks and tops –
This is a sampler style quilt that Cynthia had made at an earlier “Fast Quilts” class at Castle Court Quilter – doesn’t it look good?
– hawk-eyed readers will spot the V&A repro print in the 4 corner squares of this stack of blocks.
A different look for the same King’s Crown block – and those owls are just irresistible!
The contents of the quilt cupboard have not been forgotten and I hope to share another quilt soon. In the meantime here’s a corner of a small quilt made by Amy Emms MBE – this quilt is near the top of the cupboard and was a gift from Himself (the most patient of men, as some of you know) when I was the first recipient of the Amy Emms Award at Quilts UK. More about Amy another time, enjoy the picture –
