Festival Workshops

I did 2 workshops and a one day Masterclass whilst I was at Festival of Quilts this year. 

Thursday I was very honoured to take a Masterclass with Noriko Endo who is known for her Confetti Quilts.

My attempt is now where near the magical images Noriko produces, but I am very pleased it actually looks like the picture it was based on  :) 


I'm looking forward to playing with free motion quilting and some bright threads on this.

Saturday saw me do a quick workshop with Alicia Merrett call Interpreting Kandinsky.


And Sunday morning I did another quick workshop with Gail Lawther on New Zealand Seascapes.


All of these workshops were very different with each one using  a different technique.  Yes there is still work to be done on all three projects, but they are all small and will be quick enough to finish (hopefully whilst I am off for the last weeks of the school holidays) 

Happy Quilting!

Three courses? Lucky thing! I only managed to whiz round the quilts and spend some money!
