Jackie White Workshop-3D Embellishments

After seeing Jackie's quilts with all the 3D embellishments, on the Thursday evening, we were able to learn some of her techniques at the workshop on Friday.  She showed us how to make various flowers. We learned about zipper flowers, pinwheels, twist and turn flowers and double and triple fold flowers and ribbon flowers. We also made twirlies (spiral stems) and leaves. We were all amazed what Jackie could make using everyday household items like buttons, ribbons, zippers, toothpicks, puzzle pieces and empty spools.  We actually made  6 – 8 different flowers and were shown how to make at least 12 more. It was a fun workshop that provided us with lots of ideas.

October Meeting

Our October meeting was held last week and there was lots of interesting things to hear about, see and discuss.  We were all asked to fill out a questionnaire regarding what activities we would be interested in-what type of banquet, what type of "quilt til you wilt" and a possible bus trip to the CQA show.
Jackie White from Manitoulin Island was our speaker for the evening.  She spoke about CQA and the importance of individuals becoming members. Then, she talked about her "Journey of a Quilter".  The quilt show that accompanied her talk was quite amazing. It included many quilts with her signature embellishments.

The next 3 quilts were shown at "Show and Tell", but because of camera problems,
I asked Erika and Jacqui to send me their pictures.
All 3 quilts were made from the same pattern,
Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street.

Becky Goldsmith Workshop-Sept 13,2013

After an informative lecture on "colour" on Thursday night, Becky Goldsmith returned on Friday morning for a workshop. Our project was a small 8"x8" block called "Happy Houses"
We learned a variety of hand applique techniques including easy template making, placement overlays, reverse applique and cutaway applique.  I'm sure we were all overwhelmed with all the information! It was a great workshop!
