Spinning Squares with Village Quilters, Linthorpe, Middlesbrough
Last Friday, Village Quilters started their Spinning Squares blocks. Lots of lovely fabric combinations, including black and white; black, white and bright green; Quilt Gate Japanese metallics; taupes; pinks and browns; calm blues; and Christmas fabrics (I think you need to start anything for Christmas about now!)
This friendly group aren't just good at getting started with new projects, they are also good finishers and I've already seen a lot of completed quilts from our previous Super Strips workshop. Here's another one. Don't your think the dark borders set off the paler blues nicely? The bold contrast frames the quilt top in a new and interesting way.
One of the quilters brought her version of my long workbag from '21 Terrific Patchwork Bags'. She kept the seaside theme simple but a bit more colourful than the original bag and I love her rope tie detail - it adds a very nautical touch!
