Last workshop of the year

Well - so it was the last workshop before our summer break yesterday!  We all had a lovely, productive day with Lynne Johnson - and Sandra was feeling pretty pleased with herself because she has finished her Medallion Quilt!!

She had pieced together some pieces of fabric she had around the house for the backing:

And together with Lynne basted the three layers ready for quilting:


We have decided that to launch our workshops in September, we will be having a Lynne Johnson Medallion Quilt Exhibition here from 1.00pm to 4.00pm on Wednesday 17th September.  She has made so many beautiful quilts that we are really excited about it.  We also hope that those that have attended her classes and have made quilts will bring them along too - give us all inspiration for lots of winter quilting!!

Meanwhile we are still basking in lovely sunshine here.  Harvest is trundling on, the Rape, Winter Barley and Oats are already in, and now they are gathering in the wheat.  Of course the sunshine has also brought out all the insects and animals we associate with summer - I have even been hearing crickets as I've walked the dog.  I love that.....

                                            ......but I'm less enthusiastic about finding them on my pillow!!


  1. What a fabulous quilt. And so much work gone into it.

  2. Fantastic pics of finished quilts and Sandra should be very proud of hers, it looks great! I've really enjoyed catching up with the news via the blog. Sadly I won't be around for the exhibition on the 17th Sept, would have loved to have come along. Looking forward to seeing the new workshop list for the Autumn when it's ready, Toni and I have missed our Lorne Hill days and look forward to returning after these warm summer days draw in. Carole

  3. Hear you were very lucky in the raffle Carole - got to think of a project now!
