I had a lovely day yesterday at the Bramble Patch visiting Bren Boardman in her Open Studio and I was also lucky to be able to see the 2012 Showcase where the theme was Bletchley Park.
So here is Bren talking to one of the visitors.
And here is a great piece of work by Sarah Showers who is also exhibiting at Festival of Quilts. The stitching is very interesting - lots of variety of stitch and thread.
And here is a selection of Bren's students work - lots of lovely sketchbooks to look at.
And here - at long last - is my mystery quilt finally finished my hand quilting. Having stitched just inside the stars I needed to tie in another area of the quilt so quilted just inside the squares - I think it works quite well. So my favourite thing next - binding.
Enjoy the sunshine and the closing ceremony of the Olympics.
Hope to see some of you at the Festival of Quilts - looks like it should be very good.
