In Betweeners - Spring Things

If you look back to our August 2015 Blog Post you will see that Margaret taught us how to make Knot Gardens using melted wax crayons which were embellished with French Knots - here is Sue M's finished article! She's also added piece of chiffon, and it is in a frame with a hanging ribbon. 
Well done for persevering, Sue! 



In the not quite so distant past, Rona attended the workshop run by Mandy Pattullo - she has worked day and night since and has finished her lovely quilted hare! 
Here are photographs of it "en-route", and at the finishing post...no sign of the tortoise though. 


As you can see, as well as stitching details on the body of the hare, Rona has bound the edges of her quilt and has embellished the background with an appliqu├ęd flower and with some Kantha quilting stitches. Gorgeous! 


Abi has also been beavering away and has now finished her fox from the same workshop. 

I'm looking forward to seeing these in person at our next meeting, so that I can have a go at this technique myself!
