Flower Power workshop

These were the samples to inspire the class to make their flowers. Apologies for members picture quality as I apparently had the wrong setting. Sorry girls.
Marys piece turned into a shadow applique piece by adding a rainbow sheer

Jan almost completed her piece and obviously fond of tacking

Bev decided her piece was going to be used this christmas and really loved using the 505 instead of tacking

Betty made this lovely piece and might add a few more into a small quilt and pleased to have learnt machine applique

Viv made this piece and experimented with the embroider stiches on her machine

Here are the pictures of the Flower Power Workshop in progress

December classwork

Jenny from Monday evening class has returned to patchwork inspired by Beccas quilt displayed at Upton House exhibition Summer 2008. This bed quilt is nearly there.
Peggy came to the shaded 4 patch workshop and this is her sample. Peggy worked hard despite a dislocated arm. Fortunately her arm relocated its correct place the next day. Watch this space because Peggy now intends to make a larger quilt based on these ideas.

Rosemary loves a challenge and this one surely was. With determination this wonderful cushion was completed and no one can dare use it.

Elizabeth joined the Tuesday Afternoon class recently and this is her first mastepiece. A pram quilt for her grandchild

Stripes Like Bridget
Here are some of the ideas from the 'Stripes like Bridget' Workshop.

Here are some of the results of the workshop I held on November 8th. It was certainly stripes before our eyes by the end of the session. The inspiration was from the paintings of Brifget Riley. I saw Bridget's paintings at the Tate a few years ago and the paintings were absolutely amazing. If you ever get the chance to see Bridget's paintings do go.
