Quilt for Loch Lomond
Not mine - Glyn has started on his entry for the 'men only' challenge at the Loch Lomond quilt show this May, 'Mission Impossible'. I'll only be able to show him working on the very first stages, as I'm under instructions to keep the quilt top secret! It involves spray basting, machine quilting, hand dyeing (overdyeing of one of the main fabrics), drafting up the design in CAD on the computer, and transparent layers. I can't reveal more than that. Anyway, these pics prove he's doing it himself - and celebrating finishing off building the garage at the same time.
Spray starching the overdyed batik and having way too much fun by the look of it :-)
