Five Sentinelles Done One to Go!

I can scarce believe it but apart from hand sewing five sentinelles are done! it's been a marathon of sewing and the bindings are on all  but one and the sixth one  is basted and set to go- so some more marathon sewing.I haven't worked this hard in a long time and I used up two queen sized batts- so thank you Victorian  Textiles for your kind sponsorship of Matilda's Own wool polyester batting!

On the Workshop  front.....
 There are still some places available  for my 5th of May workshop at the European  Quilt Championship- in  the Netherlands Gypsy Blanket Collage.  I have posted an image of the gypsy blanket just to remind you what it looks like- we will be working a bit smaller as it is only a one day workshop but the idea is to create contrasts and harmonies with thread!


I am also teaching this workshop in France at Best of Quilting in Marcoussis on the 24th of May and I am also teaching free motion quilting ( Pique Libre)  at best of Quilting  on 31st of  May.

It will be your last chance to do workshop with me  for awhile in Europe  because as a single parent travelling has become  difficult to arrange as someone needs to be home for my daughter.

My back is very sore- had to stop sewing on number six yesterday evening and go for a walk. You will see them in the end of May as I will have them with me- unless I sell some...

The gypsy blanket is alive with color. Love it. Your delightful surface work will surely compel me to do some free motion stitching. At present, I collage very small pieces of fabric and follow this with decorative hand stitching. Thank you for many new ideas! Stop by and see what I do. http://kbartdesigns.com
