Every year in July, three of us go to Suffolk originally for workshops run by Lynne Edwards, now on our own in a hall to die for quilting-wise, for four UFO days of bliss. Lynne came in to see us and brought some beautiful quilts to show us. One by Gisela Thwaites who died some years ago is being looked after by Lynne for posterity. It will be on show at the FoQ this year on the traditional group of the Quilters Guild stands. It is a priceless crazy quilt with lots of embroidery and decoration, wonderful. I am showing it at the moment when I give my talk in the History of Appllique.


A bit late in posting this but we had a great trip to Sandown this year, going by mini bus from Baldock, which is a new service offered to locals. Driven by husband, who enjoyed himself at Kingston u Thames, and bought me some fat quarters at a local shop while he was about it!
The nine quilts looked great hanging up, still except andy's which turned out to be a problem with the sleeve. I asked a lady to take a photo of me standing by my quilt but sadly as I was passing my camera over to her I dropped the camera and broke it! Still managed to get the other quilts pictures off the camera when I got home. So I have a full set, and eight more now being made in my next class. I really find it interesting how the girls think about the imagery and come up with fabulous blocks.
I am very grateful to Grosvenor who let us have the space at Sandown, a great exhibition. FoQ this month!
