Scottish Quilt Championships next weekend

I will be at the Scottish Quilt Championships at Edinburgh from Friday to Sunday, demonstrating and teaching. It is the first time I've been to this show, although I've been coming to the spring quilt festival at the same venue for at least eight years now.  Here's the workshop info - it is a new one -

1 hour
Japanese Sashiko - Circle Segments

This unusual sashiko motif is easy to mark and stitch, once you know how. Workshop kit includes 5”
piece of sashiko fabric, sashiko thread in a choice of colours and worksheet. Hand sewing.

I think I'll offer a choice of fabric colours too, although that's probably going to be indigo blue, brown or dusky pink. Click here for a full workshop list.  Workshops can only be booked on the day, so it is first come, first served, and payments are cash only.  I need to make a new workshop sample or two and I think I'll mark the pieces the day before. I usually mark the panels in the morning, but with a 10.45 workshop, I won't have a lot of time.

I have entered one quilt, Maru (Circle), and Glyn has entered his 'Welcome to Scotland' and 'Mission Impossible' quilts.  Now I need to add the gold circle to my quilt and it will be finished - delivering it this afternoon!
