More Adventures with Textures

Another Texture Adventures workshop on Saturday produced some lovely results.  Base fabric, layered up with sheer organzas, machine stitched and burnt with a soldering iron. All good fun.

Cosy Cabin Sampler Quilts

Christine's completed sampler quilt
The 12 week sampler course at The Cosy Cabin in Risby ended recently and here is Christine's completed quilt. 16 blocks, sashings and corner stones and a full 12" border which resulted in a full double bed sized quilt - all machine pieced and quilted. A very ambitious project for a novice quilter and the results are stunning.

A new sampler quilt course will be running at The Cosy Cabin from October 2014  www.thecosycabin.co.uk

Jackie's Sampler Quilt
Same blocks (mostly) but a different colour choice for Jackie's Sampler Quilt. Bad picture - lovely quilt.
