Quilts, Patchwork & Embroidery


Posted on | June 24, 2015 | 14 Comments

I was delighted to be able to pick up my framed embroidery. Very happy with the framing.

It’s a bit tricky to photograph an embroidery behind glass, but this gives you the general idea.

I have managed to finish 2 of the 5 sets of bunting. The other 3 are all stitched and trimmed up, ready to be strung together.

Yesterday I had the pleasure of participating in a Gloria Loughman workshop. We did a lot of colour theory  and then worked on a landscape quilt.

She is a wonderful teacher and I do recommend her classes if you have the chance.

This is my work in progress.

I used a combination of hand dyed fabrics and batiks. I will do some more work on it before I sandwich and quilt it. It is about A3 size.

I am off to finish the bunting and play with the landscape.

I hope your week is going well.

Cheers, Karen
