Still Life Surface Design


Surface Design Workshop from Quilt Routes

I am teaching two 90 minute workshops at this years Festival of Quilts.
The workshop is about playing and having a bit of fun. Experimenting with paint and getting ideas.

The good news for me is that the workshops are just about sold out, but there is one space left on the Friday and two spaces left on the Saturday. Details here on the Festival of Quilts website.

I did a run through with some friends to check on timings and here is Michelle's finished piece, done in a really unique way.

Preparations

It is that time of year again when my thoughts turn towards August and this year's Festival of Quilts.

This will be my third year at the show. I never have enough hand painted fabric. I could always have sold more, a fact for which I am very grateful.


So it is time to put my nose to the grindstone and get painting!!

It will be a busy few months but I hope to share some new designs for art quilts and landscape quilt patterns and what will be a lot of new pieces of painted fabric! 
If you don't see me here too often I will be over on Instagram and Facebook. These days I have to confess that I find it so much easier to post a quick photo and then get on with the work!. I will be blogging when time allows :D
