Students work

Hello all, some people who had done workshops with me at Midsomer Quilting visited my exhibition and brought their finished pieces to show me (technically one was discussed and followed later by email!) and here they are - one hanging from Rainbow Rain and two landscapes from a workshop I did at MQ with Wells Quilters. Apologies for the quality of 1 and 3 - taken with my phone!  k3n x

Moonraker Landscapes

Hi everyone, I recently received the following photos of finished Fabric Collage Landscapes from participants in a workshop I ran over in Devizes a while ago. Aren't they fab? I love it when I receive pix of finished quilts, it's very rewarding that people have been inspired to go on with the techniques they've learnt. So if you've done a workshop with me and have a finished quilt to show for it, please send me a photo! Cheers all k3n x

Get Weaving workshop at Barrington Patchwork

Hello everyone,

Last Friday I ran a new workshop at Barrington Patchwork called 'Get Weaving' which is a fused technique creating a woven piece for quilting and embellishment or it could form the background for applique etc. It was great fun and I'll definitely be doing it again soon!

Here's a pic of Pat's finished piece, decorated with fussy cut applique butterflies and some of her machine's fancy stitches. k3n x

Dislocation

Hello everyone,

I was fortunate to have my quilt accepted for the Contemporary Quilters Guild challenge this year on the theme of Dislocation. The quilts were exhibited at the Festival of Quilts in August and will be 'on tour' at various venues including Veldhoven in Holland, QuiltFest in Llangollen and at the West Country Quilt Show at UWE in Bristol from 13th to 15th November. If you can't make any of these shows (or even if you can and would like a souvenir!)  you can order the book here http://www.cqchallenges.org/cq-books.html.
