Instant Art Quilts and a lovely speaker

Our meeting of Wessex Quiltmakers this Wednesday was us having a visit from Janet McCallum.  She is a very successful and well known quilter whose quilts I have long admired!  Three years ago I went to the Quilter Guild AGM in Exeter and saw this wonderful quilt of hers there.

If there is one quilt I would love to have in my collection, it is this one!!  The colours are amazing and the silk provides a wonderful sheen to the whole piece.

She led a workshop the day after her talk based on creating an instant art quilt.  There were some lovely outcomes that people created.  Here are a few pictures of what was produced:


My effort.  I know where I am going but you would need to be a genius to see how this can become something worth having!!

Some lovely examples of work by the other attendees on the day.


What lovely outcomes and what fabulous colours!  I hope Janet was pleased with the results.

Helen Stevens kindly brought home-made cakes and organised the workshop venue and really made us all feel welcome.  Thank you Helen!

Yesterday I spent the day at Yateley on the Inspirations to Stitch course.  Terry Donaldson had prepared tray dyeing, thickened dyes for mark-making and also fabric paints for painting on fabric.  As I usually do dyeing and mark-making at Comitted to Cloth, I spent most of the morning painting on fabric.  I would like to share it with you but it is all contributing to a whole which at present I am not sharing!!  Later perhaps.......
