I have been patchworking ALL weekend!!! Yes I have overdone it and I ache alll over!!!
Saturday I did the Kaleidoscope Hexagon class with the wonderful Carolyn Forster. She was such a friendly, approachable, helpful, lovely teacher, it was a huge pleasure to meet her...I had such a lovely time in her class, met some new people and I am in love with my new quilt:
aren't they cute? I heart them loads
I made 7 (only another 93 to go!!!!); they still need their middle parts done but I am sure they will look lovely when they are all joined together.
I have used Amy Butler fabrics for a modern twist. Well, I have been collecting and saving these for the last year so I am glad their time has come.
After the class I worked for hours on my French General quilt. Still loads to do here.
Today I started quilting about 11am and it is now 10.10pm!!!! I think I have had 2 breaks for food and that's it!!! My body is crippled from all the cutting and sewing BUT I am happy and that is what matters, no?
I have prepared 1 quilt ready for binding, 3 ready but the binding still needs to be cut and stared intensely at 2 more that need to be basted!
I even cut my new (number 14?!!!!) quilt which is based on the Eleanor Burns book "Quick Trip Quilts". I am doing a Lap size quarter trip in Kaffe Fassett fabrics, yummy!
Organised or what?!!!!
Time for bed, busy non-quilting week ahead, BUT another beautiful long weekend to look forward to starting with Kaffe Fassett's workshop at the V&A on Friday and a visit to Sandown on Saturday, and then, well, more quilting I expect!!!!!
