Chilford Quilt Show March 2012

On Friday the 9th of March, I took myself off
to Chilford Vine Yards Exhibition.
I love this exhibition for the variety of stalls and
Quilting Exhibits.
It is not too big either so you don't feel
over whelmed!
I wasn't feeling to good as I was at the end of a
chesty cold.
(I have still got the chesty cough that came with it
a month later!).

The Poppy Quilt was made by Dilys Franks.
The Bed Runner and Large Peacock Quilt was made
by Judith Wilson. The level of quilting was so high,

Enjoying Classes

Classes are always fun and and you can see they make
a lot too!
Lots of free motion quilting being tried this month
as confidence has increased with using their machines.
I love to see all the different fabrics and encourage
recycling. The Floral Bags at the top are
made with recycled fabrics and are beautiful.

Knit Wits Evening March Class

It seems ages since I last blogged and so many lovely classes
and items have been made, its lovely to be able to
share and show you.
Evening class at Knit Wits in Dereham is the first
Wednesday of every month.
This months inspiration is Circles, Curves and Bags.
Lots have bags have been made but Tea Cosys seem
to be very popular too!
It was all about fabrics with these projects.
Mandy used a ready printed patchwork squares fabric
but by cutting it on the diagonal and then putting a vertical
strip of the fabric gave a added interest to the bag.
Which is in use and several people have asked her
where she brought it and are pleasantly surprised
when she says she made it herself.
