stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
This weekend, while the rain was pouring down hard outside, a few hundred quilters in Canterbury, were inside enjoying a talk by Judi Mendlessohn. We got to see plenty of her quilts including one she had made by boiling jumpers knitted by her mother!
(sorry about the picture quality, I was at the back)
She’s got a point!
This is a detail of her version of a Karen K. Stone pattern, with many, many pieces!
After a break and some shopping, members of Oast Quilters got to show their finished projects and Judi kindly helped hold them up.
This Apple Core quilt was hand pieced by fellow Jo Blox member Elaine, for her daughter.
Then to my surprise, Tansy of Pogles Wood Patchers stood up and showed their group QuiltAlongs! Can you believe these are from the same fabric swap!
(thanks for the images Kaie, I wasn’t quick enough)!
On Sunday, Judi taught a class on foundation piecing. So while it continued to rain outside, we got to spend some quality time stitching very small pieces of fabric together. Thank goodness for English summers!
Thank you Judi!
