Quillo in Four Sessions

Being able to teach Textile Classes that people can sign up to
when they want is a real bonus because I get to meet
some lovely and unique people.
Gill is one of those ladies.
She was in Norfolk for a month looking after her Mum
and on some time for herself signed up for
four Sessions at Knit Wits to learn Patchwork and Quilting.
Gill had done nothing like this before and wanted
to dive straight in when I showed her the Quillo.
( A Quilt that folds into a cushion or pillow,
hence the name "Qui lo").
So over the four sessions and homework!
you can see what she achieved above.
Everyone took to Gill and I am sure she will be popping in
when she is visiting her Mum in Norfolk again.
Well done Gill!

Union Jack Cushions

Its funny how things go in trends and certain things come
back into fashion.
Here two students made Union Jack Cushions
in completely different colours and in different ways.
I designed the pattern from a tiny picture
that Jenny had brought in with fabric her husband
had chose!
They turned out fantastic!

I can't believe two weeks have passed and I haven't had the chance
of blogging and showing all the wonderful creativity that
has been going on. So here goes,

More and more beautiful Striped Crazywork Cushions are being
made like the one above.
