These two squares depict the 60's and are completely different
So for those of you that are not sure what to do the answer is anything that reminds you of the era you have chosen and it can be whatever you like. I hope this helps but you are always welcome to ring us.
We have also been running our workshops for a while now and thought it would be nice to show what the Beginners group got up to
|Elaine working away at her first quilt|
|Jeans log cabin - first of many|
|Nicky's Union Jack cushion - not quite completed|
|Sarah's first cushion - she managed to make 2 on the day|
These are just a few examples of what everyone achieved.
Our Beginner`s workshop last Saturday went well and everyone seemed pleased with what they produced. Several people went home with more than one cushion, and several more came into the shop on Monday to buy fabric to make another one! Elaine produced a quilt top which everyone was very impressed with - not bad for a beginner. Jean and Jenny both went for log cabin, Sarah, Teresa, and Denise a stripe with an appliqued flower, Ellen made a combination of squares and stripes - she got so carried away that she popped out at lunch time to buy more fabric for another one!
Nicky did her own thing and made a union jack which we all loved.
The next workshop is Cathedral Window, Debby is beavering away at the samples and muttering something about whose idea was this - it was hers! Life is too short for cathedral window as far as I am concerned.
Our Thursday morning classes are going well. We are making a sampler quilt using a variety of techniques - watch this space for progress.
