Yesterday I taught a workshop for the local branch of the Quilters Guild and had a really great day. The photo above show most of the ladies with their house quilts and what a lovely band of quilters they are! We had fun designing our pictures, fusing fabric and practising machine quilting. As you can see everyone's designs are very different. Some are based on a real house and some are fantasy!
I started by showing some of my quilts and the starting point for this project:
|I love the rectangular tree in this.|
|The picture extends into the border - a great idea.|
|Lovely fabrics and a fabulous tree.|
|A bird perched in the tree - wow!|
|Not only a beautiful house but a line of washing too!|
|Two little bird houses and birds in a tree!|
Haven't they done well?! Everyone loved the freestyle, no rules approach so all in all a very creative and enjoyable day. Many thanks to Jean for organising the workshop and also to Pippa and Glenda for the help and tea making!
