Jean's Quilt

During a workshop in Exeter last Saturday, one of the ladies who had done my 'Curvy Cabins' workshop with me a while ago, brought the quilt she had gone on to make using the blocks she made on the day plus a LOT more! Isn't it fabulous? A volcanic eruption of colour and movement. k3n x

Arts Centre Update

I ran my Quilted Textile Art workshop today with 11 lovely, creative ladies who jumped right in and made some fantastic things - despite the fact that we were all of a flutter first thing as a photographer from the local paper (the 'Chard and Illy'), turned up to take our photo! Hopefully this will be in next week's edition - trusting we were all photogenic enough!

Here's a shot of part of my exhibition, I am in the gallery every Monday and Wednesday morning so do come and say hello if you're in the area. The exhibition is open Mon to Fri 9.30 to 4.30 and to 2.30 on Saturday until 26th October.

Winning Student!

Here is a picture of Kim's beautiful quilt that she made in my two part kaleidoscope workshop a while ago and then went on to freehand machine quilt - fantastic pebbles in the border! She won Viewers' Choice at the Star Quilters exhibtion recently - and well-deserved too!

Kaleidoscope Workshop with Apple County Quilters

Yesterday I had part two of my two day kaleidoscope workshop with the lovely ladies of Apple County and wanted to share their beautiful work. What was especially nice was how many of them took the technique and made it their own by coming up with unconventional shapes, inserting other fabrics and all sorts of other shenanigans! It was a very lively interesting two days and I do hope they'll have me back another time as I thoroughly enjoyed myself. I look forward to receiving photos of finished quilts in due course!

The room became an art gallery for the day!
