Assessment on the go!

Well, what a busy week it was! Seemed to be a lot going on and then there was a quilting retreat at the weekend. We took over a couple of Cottages on the shores of Lake Huron and had a great time! Lots of great food and work being done. It was great to see what the others were working on, there were 8 of us, and some lovely quilts being made. I took my Final assessment piece for the City and Guilds and got quite a bit done, so feel I am achieving something! Lots more to do yet, but hope to get back at it tomorrow with a clear day doing nothing but sewing.

This weekend sees  a workshop being held in Port Franks. It will be quite exciting and we are all looking forward to seeing what we will achieve through it. The pattern is Highland Fling from "Among Brenda's Quilts", and features a bias trim so should be an interesting day, looking forward to doing something a little different. I don't make much in the way of traditional Quilts, preferring to work on the Art side, just seeing where my imagination takes me, or working on painting fabric and designing.
