Glyn's latest quilt - work in progress for Loch Lomond Quilt Show

Glyn has been working on this year's entry for the Loch Lomond Quilt Show.  Here are some work in progress photos.  This year's Men Only theme is 'Manmade'. You'll have to wait until after the show to see the finished piece - unless you are visiting of course.  Clues - it is very reflective and in real life is much, much bigger! He's also entered it for 'A Touch of Yellow', this year's theme category at the National Quilting Championships at Sandown Park, and is planning to send it to the Great Northern Quilt Show at Harrogate and the Scottish Quilt Championships at Edinburgh as well.

Here's a useful idea for improvising weights while the 505 spray glue dries -

Golly, that quilting looks amazingly accurate on that very shiny, and presumably slippery, fabric, you go Glyn!!

It was very slippery - a slippery top layer over another slippery layer! I don't think it would have been possible without glue ;-)
