Saturday was our first class of the year with Marg Sampson at Material Obsession and it was lovely to get back into the sewing swing and be inspired by everyone's work. Organized Ms Linen and Raspberry has already written about our day so hop on over and see Jean's lovely appliqué and Kathy has also posted some pics here. I'm often too brain-dead to take many photos at our workshops... duh.
After much to-ing and fro-ing a final border design has been settled upon for Jane. Based on a border from an old English Chintz quilt seen at Peppergreen Antiques, we simply had to make use of the luscious blue birds for the dog-tooth. A change of background fabric for some texture and related but more oatmealy colour will give this final (hooray!) wide border a bit of interest. More applique shapes to come between the doggy teeth.Need to get back to MO before the blue birds of happiness are sold out...because of course I didn't buy enough, amazing just how much fabric goes into a border.
I wrote this post yesterday but couldn't send the pics from my new iPhone to the laptop...it's taken me this long to crunch the technology, so hence the weird message some of you may have received from blogger yesterday...soz.
