Quiltfest - workshops, trading day etc.

The last few days at Quiltfest have been busy.  We opened on Saturday for the first time in many years, and had two workshops at the Pavilion - 'Sashiko for Summer' and 'African Jazz'. These were not well attended, so we are unlikely to hold similar day workshops at Quiltfest in the near future. Those that did go to the workshops enjoyed them and produced some good work during the day.

Glyn got ahead before 'African Jazz', piecing some random strips from hand dyed plain cottons on Friday afternoon, which he then cut up and included in the two panels above. EDIT - I forgot to mention that those panels are going to become front seat covers for the recycled Range Rover seats that are going into the Landrover rebuild.
I have been working on a new Japanese Circles and Squares patchwork as a demo all week.

Trading Day today was busier than yesterday.  I didn't have time to take many photos.  Here's one of me with the Fanoe quilt we raffled to raise funds for the Quilt Museum, with the raffle winner.  I'm delighted the quilt has gone to a good home.


Probably the busiest day at the Pavilion for other things rather than Quiltfest was Thursday, when Sky TV had an engineers' conference - never seen so many Sky vans parked in one place!  There are sometimes other events on during Quiltfest, but there is always plenty of space to park on the other side of the building.
