'Pickled Fish' class with Chris Jurd

We enjoyed a wonderful workshop with Chris Jurd last weekend, learning to make her foundation pieced 'Pickled Fish' quilt block - it's a complex block, a bit of a challenge with precision curved piecing required to fit all the pieces together, but it was a fun day with a bonus trunk show of Chris's own quilts. Thanks to Chris, and to Nerida for organising.

Pickled Fish - precision piecing on paper foundations, lots of
curved seams, and a riot of colour. Fun that makes you think.
Chris Jurd with Sue, who has made several beautiful
quilts from Chris's patterns and classes.

End of class progress - we all went home to finish our first block 
while the muscle memory was still in play.
By Monday morning's meeting, we had six block finishes, with more to come ...





... and five of us took our blocks for show and tell
