Coloured Pencils Quilt


I finally have some finishes to show you! Over the next couple of days I'm going to share projects that I will be teaching as classes at Patchfinders in Poynton. The shop has moved premises and we are having our opening day tomorrow Tuesday September 1st. There are giveaway goodies too so come by if you can!

The first finish I have to share is this cute quilt I designed:


The quilt is perfect for children or artists! I quilted it with 12 weight Aurifil thread, to get those fun 'drawn' lines and to add texture to the pencils.


I really enjoyed making this quilt and hope others will too! My kids are absolutely in love with it and have asked that we can keep it after it's been displayed in the shop. The true seal of approval :)

The white Widescreen by Carolyn Friedlander fabric makes a great background and the black seemed perfect for the backing and binding:


I will be teaching my Coloured Pencils Quilt class on Friday 9th October, all the details of my classes will be posted HERE. See the Patchfinders website for a list of all the classes and how to book.
