Liberated Quilting

This is the book I have waiting for ever since I discovered Gwen Marston's style of quilting last year. I had it on pre order from Amazon since Christmas and it arrived a few days ago.
It is an excellent book and has loads of ideas I am looking forward to trying.

It also goes well with my liberated stripes quilt which is still not quite finished.
What have you been doing with your time? I hear you ask!


Since Christmas I have taught my first 3 patchwork and quilting workshops which went very well. I have been to College for a weekend for my City & Guilds. I have also made my first fabric postcard which I can't share until it arrives at its destination.

Also, almost at opposite ends of the spectrum I have taken a workshop with award winning quilter Philippa Naylor in precision piecing! I have not completed my workshop sample yet but will hopefully report soon.

So as you can see I have not been too lazy - except perhaps when it comes to updating my blog!

Looks like an interesting book. I must check it out!

Every now and again, I make a little quilt just sewing "bits" together, usually on the pretext that it is THE best way to tidy up next to my cutting area. Though I do a lot of ultra precise stuff for my books, there's nothing quite like an afternoon of making something where I don't have precise measurements.

Have fun!

You can never have too many quilting books and this one looks very interesting. I'd love to be more liberated!
