You know that I've been teaching the hugs and kisses quilt (japanese x and +) at Treehouse Textiles, and then we had a how to assemble your quilt top and finish your quilt day. One of the gorgeous girls that came to both classes was Diana. A week or so ago she sent me some photo's of her beautiful, finished quilt....
Isn't it a beauty? Diana has quilted it using both machine quilting and hand quilting with perle 8 threads. I adore the colours she has used, and they look fabulous in this photo where the colours have been saturated...
Diana's son is the recipient of this quilt and I think the huge smile on his face says it all!
Diana is off on her second quilt and I cannot wait to see what she creates. One of the wonderful things about teaching at Treehouse has been meeting lovely people and making new friendships. I have another assemble your quilt class this Saturday at Treehouse and I'm really looking forward to that!
I've been busy here but nothing much to show at the moment. Working on a couple of quilts for magazines so hope to bring some sneak peeks soon. Also received Kathy's gorgeous book
Making Quilts... the Promise of Joy in the mail a few weeks ago so will do a book review soon too.
Also (I did tell you it was a bits & pieces post!!) planning on a trip up to Amitie on Saturday 23rd June around 10ish if anyone is around and wants to meet up, will do coffee after a fabric shop! Send me an email if interested.
Coffee photo from my gorgeous sister, she makes the most amazing coffee!
So what bits & pieces are you up to this week? xo
