Well, this week has been full of excitement – the arrival of my new workshop. Admittedly it is still in pieces (and my, there are a lot of pieces) but like a good quilt, a little time and it will soon be up ready.
I ordered the log cabin from Dunster House who were recommended by two different people. I’ve certainly been impressed so far – the two men who delivered the cabin were so careful with the stacking and placement of the different bits I’m confident that it should be a fairly easy job to assemble. They were very Covid secure too!
Another feature of the past week was my UKQU blog, Sew a Fine Seam part 1, was published. You can find it here and it covers why we use inches – Imperial measurements – for patchwork and quilting which can be confusing for the beginner.
The next blog will cover the ‘scant’ seam allowance – what it is, why we try to use it and how with both machine and hand sewing and should be out soon.
I’ve also been playing with YouTube and setting up my own Channel with the aim of posting some videos and slide shows once the workshop is up and running.
Finally, my copy of February’s British Patchwork and Quilting magazine arrived in which, is my feature on the lovely Portishead Quilters and their efforts to make quilts for veterans. A fantastic project and was a privilege to write. You can also see my Ombré Bubbles quilt from the last issue here too!
Until next time, stay safe.
