Goings On

This is my Friendship Braid quilt. If you look close enough you can see the basting stitches - I had just finished layering it up when I took this picture. I am now going to quilt it which won't be an easy task because it's so large. We had to put three tables together to layer it up. I've used Bamboo Wadding for the first time, it feels like silk so I just had to try it.

On Saturday Gina was at the shop giving a workshop on Machine Embroidered Textures. It was a very quiet class, all the ladies were so absorbed in their work. The pictures below are of their work. I love all the colours it was so nice to see all the schemes coming together.

The next picture is of Gina's work. She has put a temporary frame around her work and you can see what a lovely picture it will make.

It was a lovely workshop all the ladies enjoyed themselves and Gina was as wonderful as ever.

Your quilt is beautiful! The bamboo wadding is lovely to work with - although I only used it for a lap quilt, not a huge quilt like yours!

The results of the workshop are lovely and I do love seeing everyone's different styles.
