Attending workshops.

I have been fortunate to attend a few patchwork, appliqué and embroidery workshops over the past few weeks. It is always interesting to learn other ways to work and apply new skills. There are many ways to achieve the same result. So many quilters have their own tips and tricks. Through workshops you can experiment and decide which technique works best for you. Along the way you have a great time socialising and working beside ‘like minded’ quilters.

Here are my finished projects from a series of workshops with Wendy Williams. I had so much fun completing the wool embroidery and decided to make the sample a centre piece in a cushion, made from scraps found in my ’pink’ stash. Wendy’s work is so bright and colourful. All her work creates happy projects.

The quilt is my version of her ’40 Shades of Grey’, once again it was a great stash buster which incorporated lots of new techniques. Now I have the challenge of quilting it.

I have also had the pleasure of seeing the pattern and instructions for my quilt ’Whimsical Houses’ published as a project in the current issue of Quilters Companion #116.
