London Quilt Exhibition Workshop

I went to a Quilt exhibition by the London Quilters at Swiss Cottage Library on a recent visit and they were running workshops for quilting techniques.  What fun!  Spent the day there - and I missed the rain too!

This is quilting - the designs were drawn out for us.

This is Cathedral Windows.

That reminded me of a Cathedral Window wall hanging I made ages ago..... using Japanese fabrics and a Sashiko style of stitching around the motifs.  It was hung up under the stairs - can't see it there - think I'll keep it in the kitchen for a while!

A few close ups - my darling son bought me the tassle for Christmas many years ago - it looks good on here.

My bag with Japanese folded patchwork squares is coming along nicely - it is partly sewn together.  I saved some for the Calder Quilters meeting, so I would have some hand sewing to do.
