Yesterday I posted about the scrap patchwork. What I chose to do was the strip or string patchwork, which is the same thing really but a bit more structured. I chose to do that because I had so many bits and pieces left over from the American themed quilt I made for Larry. For those of you who wouldn’t know where to start with this type of patchwork and for those of you who just like watching ‘How to do…’ videos, here is a good one from Missouri Quilts:
I intend to make mine into a table runner but I may just keep going with it till it gets a bit bigger. I’ll post again when I’ve made some progress.
Last Saturday I went to a biennial patchwork quilt show in a nearby village. Sewing is very much part of cottage life, at least it is in this cottage! and I was pleased to go along and see what other people had done.
The quilts were fantastic as you will see in the following pictures:
The next one isn’t quite finished, but it is lovely, don’t you think?
No. 15 No. 16
and this next one was voted ‘Best in Show’. I think you can see why. It is fabulous, isn’t it!
Larry found an appropriate one: Someone had made a quilt of American flags. Isn’t that neat?
I hope you enjoyed your trip round the quilt exhibition with me. Which one did you like best?
