Ready to quilt!
My May journal quilt is now ready to stitch. I spent a happy hour cutting and bonding the different coloured shapes to the background.
The way the soy wax resisted the dye on some of the fabrics was just the effect I wanted for this area as you can see on this close up.
I had time out this afternoon to visit Quilts UK at Malvern. I haven't visited this local show for several years so it was good to go and meet up with old friends.
Here are a few of the quilts that caught my eye so I thought I would share them with you.
|Marrakech by Pauline Barnes|
Pauline uses her sewing machine to great effect creating intricate detail on a wide range of fabrics.
|The Fall by Veronica Broadley|
|Echinacea Purpurea by Hilary Beattie|
Hilary has been sharing her design ideas with the Midlands CQ Group recently and it was good to see this inspirational quilt again.
|Inspired by Fusion (group quilt)|
This quilt was inspired by a spiral staircase in a tower in Bath. I was intrigued by the idea of a group working on such a complex design!
|Flowers and Lattice by Lynne Edwards (detail)|
I am usually drawn to quilts with bright colours but I was instantly attracted to the subtle colours in this beautifully hand appliqued and hand quilted wallhanging.
