My first session at FQR2014 will be hand quilting with Jen Kingwell (yes, Jen Kingwell!!!), and the supplies list says we require a 50cm square quilt sandwich, and that solids are good.
You know I don't easily do solids, nor do I hand quilt, so I am starting a long way from my comfort zone, which, I suppose is the point! I don't see sense in paying to do something you are already good at.
So I dug deep and whipped up this panel all ready for some quilty action...
A bunch of Kona solids and white Essex Linen, I had to have a little texture.
This, and a couple of my other class makes are destined to become cushions, I hope.
I have two classes with Jen, (we are friends already, but she doesn't know that yet!), so I am hanging my head in shame that my Midnight At The Oasis has been untouched for months.
I am hoping that I will return from Retreat inspired to hand stitch as much as possible, and get those applique flowers on so I can start on the teeny, tiny-pieced borders. Well it's a plan!
