The fascinator is completed, BUT I would prefer to unveil it to my Distant Stitchers and Sian before I show the World. I hope you don't mind!
Well, maybe a taster of what it looks like...
And you don't have to use colour if you don't want to!
This quilt, obscured by this delightful gentleman, won Best Traditional Design and had lots of signitures from family members from across the world - A Family Tree of a Quilt!
I enjoyed myself - yes it was hard work and just a little stressed BUT it was fun and it happened, and my team did it!
They think I did such a good job I'll be co-ordinating it next year!!!!!!
Jean Genie with Stars and Hearts
This is my "green" quilt as it is recycled jeans and very cuddly. It is my star gazy quilt for v. late summer evenings when I sit in the garden and watch meteor showers.
A Rare Bit of Welsh!
Daffodils, Dragons and Leeks. I made three "leeks" and attached them to the bottom panel. Although a bit wonky, I am proud of this quilt as I taught myself how to do this! I would like to try this technique again, but next time I would machine quilt the pattern as it would be quicker and I could be doing the stuffing sooner and this is the bit I enjoyed the most.
And so to bed I think I deserve it.
The final layer has been influenced by the spiral staircase in St. Paul's catherdral.
The foam blocks are sewn to the background fabric and the fabric was mounted onto foam board
A nicer picture of this final piece will be appearing soon in the coursework gallery blog.
