As those of you who read this blog will know, I tend to have occasional "weeks of" and this week I am concentrating on silk in all it's shimmery glory. Unusually, I have invited people to join me, but this has been of mixed utility.. Today was pretty good, however
So, so far, I have made some purses
of which this is a small selection
And some truly tiny blocks
..some of which I have made into a little quilt (approximately 8 inches square) - the blocks are 3 inches before joining and are foundation-pieced on calico
and a degree of mess, of course
Also some book covers, not yet finished, and sundry oddments
And come to a realisation that I may not live long enough to use all this silk at this rate of titchiness
So far, so good.. The Challenge Quilts look fantastic, and so many different takes on a simple idea (the Equilateral Triangle and its offspring, the Diamond and the Hexagon.)
Heather, Lucy Poloniecka and I had a deal of fun sorting these into groups of three... Kate Percival, our Exhibitions Officer, joins us tomorrow
..and hanging them with the help of two stalwart standers-on-ladders-with-screwdrivers...
We have more quilts than walls, of course, even though we seem to have an awful lot of wall
Heather arranges her table - note the Old Black Singer - we have brought two, so no fighting
I wish my camera did Panoramic - this is not all of it
More tomorrow, and please do come
We're at the University of Western England, Bristol till Saturday evening...
