Festival 2009

Well here we are again with another Festival over and done with. Boy was it warm and boy was it busy.
I thought I'd share a few photos of our exhibition to give you a flavour of what we did. I did forget to take a photo of the cakes before we sold most of them - so sorry about that (I can promise they tasted great).
The photo above shows 2 quilts made from Jelly Rolls and the other is one made from batiks (a favourite of one of our members).
The brown one is one of mine and the one to the right is made by one of our members for her nephew.
Here are our entries for the Margaret Every Challenge at the Bramble Patch. All contain the fabric provided by the Bramble Patch - none of them look anything like the others.

A slightly brighter one by me (purple and yellow) it's quilt as you go.To the left here are our scrappy Irish Chain samples. You can see how different the colours we chose look.
And yet more by our members.
And more - plus one (in the centre) made by children at a local school.
And a few more...
See you all soon.


Looks like it was wonderful...sorry I missed it.

You did well to display all those lovely quilts. (I'm not creeping, but your purple and yellow one was stunning!)

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.

Jean Littlejohn class

The Lutterworth Embroiderers Guild were very fortunate to have Jean Littlejohn teaching. I think most of the class managed to finish their morning piece - which was a small stitched picture that we then embellished.  For me it was a first with an embellisher and Jean generously let us use her machine.  The second piece was stitched with a more open weave fabric than many of us were used to sewing with. Jean generously provided this fabric that was dyed and she also provided a size 14 Chenille needle - again much larger than we were used to, but the big eye enabled us to use a thinker thread to fill the space. We then bond webbed and foiled over the stitches,  So - a great class. Here are some photos from the day:
I'll post more photos as the work progresses.

Market Bosworth Festival

The Festival was a great success this year.  It was lovely to meet some of my blog readers... you know who you are. Above is a photo of Helen Rhodes who was demonstrating in the Bosworth gallery.  She's so nice and produces great work - do have a look at her website.  Here's a photo of the Town Crier - not sure where he was from, but he looked very smart in his outfit.  And here is the lovely Bee Design stand.  She also makes great paper products.  I wanted to show you the quilt Phyllis made using Edwina's 'cut and come again' method.  It was very popular with visitors.  I thought you'd like to see some of the work completed by some of the ladies who were beginners and are now producing great work.  If you'd like to know more about classes drop me a line and I'll forward you details on.  Don't worry I don't teach - the lovely Linda does.  Here is my small contribution to the show.  At long last I finished hand quilting with a seed stitch and got the …
