Quilting Arts Magazine June/July 2014
To finish off the raw edges I simply satin stitched all around about 3 or 4 times. As I had worked right up to the edge of the fabric I had no other real choice - something to think of next time!!
So that is how I grew the quilt. It was very much a case of trying out different ideas, seeing what looked good and what did not, then thinking about 'what next'.
I often work in this way, with only a sketchy idea of how the work may look when it is finished, and I quite like that. Sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't - but that, for me, is the fun.
Thanks for sharing in my development of this quilt.
The sun is out and it is time to be outside. I need green fabric, and lots of it for my new series. Time to get out the pots, buckets and dye and have a big dye fest.
Midsomer Quilting's Fourth Exhibition
The bi-annual exhibition of amazing quilts is at Radstock Museum once again, thanks to the dedication and commitment of the owners of Midsomer Quilting, I made my first visit to this year's exhibition last week and was so impressed at the scale and variety of the beautiful work on display - in fact there are over 200 items to see. Chris and Brigitta Howell and De Pickford support their customers by organising this amazing exhibition which is hosted by Radstock Museum. The variety and quality of quilts is quite outstanding - if you haven not been yet, go soon - there is not much time left!
The exhibition has been running since February and continues to 31 May 2014
