Things have been slightly busy both in the studio and infront of my computer. All very exciting though, and it is great to be able to offer more courses.
The City & Guilds Patchwork & Quilting level 2 certificate course started at Bee Crafty this month, which was very exciting.
Level 1 courses in Machine and Hand Embroidery will be starting in the new work room at Tudor Rose in July. The next level 1 course will be starting there in September and the level 2 Patchwork & Quilting in October. Along with and additional beginners Patchwork & Quilting class things are looking busy. I love teaching and starting my students off on their creative journey's. If you would like details about any of these courses please get in touch.
Also the Quilters Guild has a great page with listings for City & Guilds courses around the country.
Yesterday I taught a Crazy patchwork with hand quilting class at Tudor Rose. It was a busy and productive day and these are some of the lovely blocks the students produced.
Cathy started adding beads to her seam treatments, using wonderful fabric from Harewood House, to create a very fresh and spring-like block.
Judith created this striking block, and I love the use of closed blanket stitch, fly stitch and french knots to make a row of people. A really fun block.
Pat's addition of lace and lovely stitching has created a block with a unique antique feel. Purple and green are one of my favourite colour combinations.
Many thanks to them for allowing me to share their wonderful work with my blog readers.
