I know I haven't blogged for a week. It's not because I've been idle - quite the opposite in fact. After much thought we decided that we couldn't bear not to be at Festival of Quilts again this year. It's their 10th anniversary and we've been there every year since the beginning. Despite the fact that Laura will be as round as a beachball by August we have booked our stand and will endeavour to demonstrate each day. Until then we'll be working frantically to prepare. While Laura is pregnant I've taken over dyeing duty and am enjoying it hugely.
I may find it difficult to part with some of these fabrics!
Mind you, there should be plenty to go round.
As well as a mountain of charm squares.
Laura has just designed this apron print and will be offering it as a kit. My much used paint box has never looked so amazing.
Of course we'll have new work on display too. This is a detail of one of the latest pieces in the Moth series. Right now it's just a little sliver of insubstantial fabric waiting to be quilted.
This is an even bigger piece needing to be quilted too. May have to work a night shift to get everything finished in time!
Maybe it's because it's summer but I've been making rather colourful quilts lately. Not my usual dour palette at all. Of course, stitch will transform them and add even more colour - I'll let you see how I get on as soon as there's something to show.
Thank you for dropping by. Please come back again soon. Linda
