Focus on - Jenny Jones

Several of my students have recently completed their City & Guilds courses and have kindly given me permission to share their work.

This first post is about the wonderful work of Jenny Jones.

Her patchwork wallhanging was inspired by a visit to 78 Derngate, Northampton. A beautiful house which was re-modelled by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1916.

Each of the blocks in the wall hanging were inspired by different rooms, the stained glass and the decor. 

She has really captured the spirit of the house and his work. 

Her applique bag shows her attention to detail with hand and machine appliqué and trapunto flowers. The two sides show different seasons which compiment each other perfectly.

It has been lovely to see such wonderful work develop over the last few months.

I hope you enjoy seeing it as much as I did and I would like to offer my congratulations to Jenny on her beautiful pieces.

First Pattern published

I have now started to produce my patterns as booklets complete with diagrams  and quilting ideas. 
I recently received the first one which was a very exciting day. 

They were at the Festival of Quilts at the Tudor Rose Patchwork stand which again was very exciting for me. 

I am currently getting the next ones pattern tested and they will be available soon. 

This pattern is now available from my Etsy Shop - price £8.99 excluding postage 

I have also had several students complete their City & Guilds courses this summer and will post details of their work soon.

sorry it is a short blog post but it is onward with the next pattern.

Happy quilting
