This was my favourite quilt at the National Quilt Championships at Sandown Park yesterday. It’s a large wallhanging by Stephanie Parker from Cornwall, who used several photos to get the perfect picture. The background quilting represents evolution, from primitive forms at the bottom to man at the top. It did win a rosette but I’m afraid the camera chopped that bit off so I can’t tell you which one – sorry!
It was a long day as I left home at 7.40am and got back at 5.30pm, but we were very lucky in that the dreaded M25 ran smoothly and we were in fact early arriving! It made a nice change in that some of us were able to book a workshop. I chose an hour class with Kim Shaw, who showed us 4 different ways to edge a quilt. My sample looks dreadful as it was very rushed but I now can do prairie points!
Far too much shopping – lots of books and magazines, a few rulers and a new small cutting mat, plus some white tone-on-tone fabric and a couple of novelty fabrics for my collection. Enough to keep me busy for a while, but I do have 2 quilts to finish over the next couple of weeks so I’d better get cracking! 🙂
