A number of our members spent an enjoyable weekend at the recent Fat Quarterly Retreat, held in London and attended by quilters from the UK, Europe and beyond. As well as the opportunity to make new friends and reconnect with old friends there were some great classes which have inspired our creative passions since the weekend ended. Lucie prefers hand work to machine sewing which stood her in good stead at her first class when a power cut stopped everyone but her in their tracks and she was able to continue with this petal block.
She has given the machine another go and made this top, although in this blog post she explains why she isn’t converted.
Amanda has finished her quilt top from Amy’s class and also done more screen printing.
many thanks to Shevvy for this post.
