Since I posted last, my book Quilts from the Colonies has arrived in my hot little hands…
I am so so thrilled with the result. It is perfect in every way. Quiltmania‘s talent in bringing all the quilts, photographs and patterns together in to one beautiful package just bowls me over.
The two quilts shown above are the two I will be teaching in Nantes at Pour l’amour du fil.
I’d love to have you join me in the classes so keep an eye on their website which is constantly being updated
I have managed to put the book down periodically …
and I’ve been having the loveliest time in my wee studio. Here’s what a lovely time looks like
But I’ve been working on a few projects simultaneously, so may my mess please be excused?
The one I’m currently working on
fanatically steadily is this one
If you’ve been following along on my Instagram page you will have seen some of the progress.
Deciding on a background for the applique centre is not fast but it’s fun
I’ve completed the applique and am now spending summer evenings stitching a border of Coffin shapes, stitched using the English Paper Piecing method
One border done and three to go.
Happy stitching and til next
