My Young Quilter (s)

My 8 yr old joined the Young Quilters last summer at a local exhibition.  She recently began attending their workshops in Dartford and this is her latest effort, which we finished off at home. She is going to put it into a local show soon.

Her big sister also joined in September, at another show which was held at Hever Castle. They both received some fabric in April with their newsletters and a request to make handprints to contribute to a banner. Here are both girls’ efforts. Isabella decided to handstitch her’s with perle thread and Cali machined with a zigzag.

Around two years ago (I think!), Isabella saw this stuffie in a craft magazine and began making it. She actually got as far as stuffing it so at the weekend all we had to do was sew up the gap then press the face into place as it was bondawebbed.

About sheppeylass

Mum of 4, I live on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent. I've always sewn but the quilting bug snagged me a couple of years ago and now, with the encouragement of my artist husband, I'm spreading my wings into textile art.
