What an end to a fantastic year. Wonderful quilts and projects on display and gorgeous ladies sharing their stories. “ Where did you get that fabric” “love those colours” “can we do this next ?” .
I am very proud and looking forward to all our new projects but especially proud of our charity work, huge thanks to Paula Buckley for all her inspiration.
So excited to announce a workshop with Angela Attwood on Monday 16th March at Sing Plus Community centre, Waterloo, Merseyside. Angie will he teaching Westalee feathers templates and I will run a separate workshop using the Westalee starter set. Both classes will be a maximum of 8 students and will cost £50 each. I’m expecting these workshops to fill up quickly so please message me to reserve places and for more information.
Last day this year at Formby fire station so a quick look at a couple of works in progress.
Day three at Bambers ended with beautiful work and designs planned for ongoing pieces. We sorted a couple of issues with machines and played with a variety of templates.
I’ve been everywhere this week starting in Yorkshire, Anglesey, Waterloo, Formby and Manchester. I’ve met some amazing quilters for the first time as well as my loyal regulars. Here’s a snippet of Westalee starter days and projects getting finished for Christmas.
I couldn’t resist showing this gorgeous example of how colour choice affects outcome with these two table runners. This years show and tell will be on 12th December .
I completely wore out the ladies taking part on day one of the Westalee Sampler ruler set. They produced lovely work , cant wait to apply their ideas to real work
I honestly have the best job. It is so satisfying when I see people growing in confidence and producing beautiful work, size doesn’t matter.
Sometimes I just want to sit back and marvel at my clever students. We even had a visit from the “Ofsted” inspector, not really, just a lovely colleague who is helping me with a Farmers Wife group quilt.
