I spent the start of the week at the WI’s Denman College teaching Happy Scrappy Patchwork which I always enjoy. I have a somewhat non conformist approach to patchwork and try to convey this to my students and I hope that the results speak for themselves. Five students with five totally different outcomes and not a fat quarter in sight.
Lots of laughs had by all!
Am back there teaching the same course May 15 & 16 and you don’t have to be a WI member to attend so why not check out details on the Denman website :
And don’t forget if you fancy learning hand patchworking I’ll be at Les Soeurs Anglaises in August :
|Laying out cut panels – note the hints of leopard print and brown velvet
|One panel nearly done and second one started
|Fabulous selection of fabrics will result in…..
|Impressive panel ready to be wadded and backed and edged
and then claimed by Grimblethorpe, her cat!
|Gloriously sunny panel – love the dots and spots|
