Quilting Open Day - coffee and cake

Get your diaries out.... we're having an open day.

On Saturday 8th September 2007 from 10 - 4 we're having an informal open day at St Peter's Village Hall, Park Street, Market Bosworth, Leicestershire. Coffee and cake will be available and it's an opportunity for us to meet other quilters in the area and for you to see what we do and the type of group we are. We're looking for more people to join our group - so come along and see how lovely we all are ;-)

It's also Heritage Weekend - so there are lots of other venues open on the day. When I have more information I'll post it.

I do hope you'll be able to come along - for a chat if nothing else. Please do drop me a line if you need any more information.

Outstanding Projects

Do you remember when this... became this? Well - It's time to get it finished.  This is my next project.  I intend to hand quilt kit with big black stitches. I always like to have a hand quilting project.
Last night I went to the Lutterworth Embroiderers Guild talk.  It was a great talk from Gizella K Warburton.  She shared her work with us - both textile work and photographs.  I really enjoyed seeing both.  Do have a look at her work.  It's abstract and uses some great fabrics which give the feel of the countryside.  These images give you a hint at the work Gizella produces. I hope to make progress with a few things this weekend and I'll post about it next week. Have a great weekend.

Festival of Quilts 2017

Hello. Well, I survived 4 days at Festival of Quilts. I had a great time, met lots of lovely people and am really inspired to crack on. I was particularly excited this year as I'd been selected to represent Region 10 of the Quilters Guild in the 'In the Spotlight' exhibition. The theme was 'No place like home'. I decided to use the postcodes of all the places I'd lived. Although I was really pleased with my quilt, I was a little nervous about it being exhibited and how it would look next to the others. I must say I was very impressed with how it was displayed.
 Also exhibiting in the same gallery representing Region 14 was my friend Sarah Humphreys. She chose to use house numbers to illustrate the theme of 'No place like home'. Another really great example of a modern quilt and as ever amazing machine quilting.  As well as participating in the 'In the Spotlight' exhibition Sarah Humphreys also managed to make another amazing quilt that she entered int…

Jean Littlejohn Talk and Class

Another busy weekend involving lots of textiles. We had a great evening on Friday at Leamington Embroierers Guild where we had Jean Littlejohn to deliver a talk and then a day class on the Saturday. I'm sure a lot of you are aware of Jean Littlejohn and her close work with Jan Beaney. So to start here are a few photos of her work and samples - she was very generous and let us handle these and take photos.

And her sketchbooks were great.  I had serious sketchbook envy.

And here is the result of my day.  Her suggestion to our group was to use one stitch - twisted chain stitch.   To make a back ground of this in a thick thread or wool, on a cotton fabric with an open weave with a very large eyed needle - a number 14 Chenille needle.  And then Bond a Web and foil was added  And then more stitching.   I bound some of my threads and I think this helped knock back the gold which was a little brash. We then got to play with an embellisher.  Never had a go before, but found it very easy to use. I se…
