After a dash back from Cornwall, leaving my husband to coordinate other family travel ( and washing) for a trip to France, I had 2 great days at Festival of Quilts.
For the first time, I also managed to attend a workshop when I was there, with the great Pat Archibald. We zoomed through making a sunset picture in fabric, although I was a bit hampered as much of my equipment had mistakenly gone back to London in the car. Quilters being the people they are, everyone rallied round and I managed to borrow all that was required. The result was this A4 piece, currently looking a bit battered as it has been stuffed in a bag for over a week. Lots of artistic licence in the interpretation of the sunset colours.
As ever, I had problems with the “back to front and upside down – ness” of bondaweb with foiling, so my sun is a little more shimmery than originally intended.
One of the other participants took a slightly different approach and got a look of a waterside skyline.
Purchases were limited to this lovely book by Janet Clare
and something I’ve been wanting to try for ages, a Thermofax screen for fabric printing.
