Two weeks ago, we had another date with Margaret, this time at Cottage Quilt Works in Warriewood, making use of their classroom and the ready availability of many beautiful bolts of fabrics. This time, Margaret coached us through choosing borders for quilt tops we made from her first workshop, or to other designs.
Most people said they sewed very little on the day, but everyone enjoyed learning a great deal. Sue kindly took these photos, but she was too busy watching and soaking in Margaret's design insights to take many - that sounds like a compliment!
|Elaine's version of Hanover Blues began in Anne Sommerlad's |
workshop in February - the scale of the print in this border fabric
suggested by Margaret looks just right, followed by the stripe ...
|... and then this blue print. It looks like there are some |
additional pieced borders in the making too.
|Nice contrast between the check and the contemporary floral |
border suggestions for Jo's version of the Anna Levens
quilt taught by Margaret in her first workshop ...
|... or will Jo go for gold?|
|Miriam's contemporary take on Anna Levens|
calls for a bold border like this stripe
|Phyl found a fabulous print to border her hot |
pink Celtic blocks
|Sue C's blue teacups, started in Anne Sommerlad's workshop, |
look very happy with some flowers, a stipe and a
complimentary graphics/text print in Sue's favoured blues.
|Sue S has made great progress on the precisely pieced |
centre of her Jane Pizar quilt, begun in Margaret's first
workshop. She likes deep pink for her first border,
but will it be this one ...
|... or possibly this one, paired with that beautiful floral print?|
