Today I finished the last of my Journal Quilts for 2015, one day early.
Here are the last 2
At the end of September I went to Geneva, I took some photos of some giant pumpkins. I then left my camera in Chantal’s car and didn’t get it back until the end of October.
Here is the photo I took
I then did a bit of photo editing in Photoshop elements to give me this photo
And here is the finished quilt. It took about an hour to make
The other quilt I finished this week was the December Journal Quilt. In October I went to the Quilt Show at Maastricht and then on to teach in Belgium, and visited the comic strip museum in Brussels. I wanted to make my quilt featuring Tintin at a quilt show and then used images of the South lakes area in the quilts.
I’ve been working on ideas for my teaching at the Festival of Quilts today.
I hope to offer a few different 1 hour workshops
Cheating at Shisha glass – make a coaster or 2
and Polly the Penguin
Last week at Grange over sands was a lot of fun – I wrote a blog post about it last week, and because the internet was so slow I couldn’t send it and then didn’t save it. It’s not quite the same to write it all over again.
Here are some of the lovely ladies
Sorry if I have missed anyone
And here is some of the work
I love the skies and we were lucky enough to see a sun set
One afternoon we went for a walk around the Silverdale area.
Another afternoon we visited Cartmel Priory
And I couldn’t resist taking taking some photos of the rusty metal springs in a skip
I have booked 2 weeks at the centre again for next year
21st November Inlaid and Interchange Applique
28th November 3D Form, Machine stitch and Applique to include some felt and silk paper making – this may already be full as most of the ladies want to come back again next year
