I watched the most recent episode of The Quilt Show with Renae Merrill and was inspired to have a got at something similar. I simplified the design for my first effort and really love the finished effect.
This finishes at about fifteen inches wide. For my City and Guilds course I have several assignments and the first is due at Easter. I have to make an accessory from my own design, so have decided to make a larger version of this as a table centre. If I'm feeling really brave I might try out making each section as a twisted log cabin as Renae Merrill does.
Last weekend we went to visit our sons in the south east and stayed in a dog friendly hotel in Brighton. Ruby had so many new experiences, walking through a city, going in a lift, walking on the beach and the most frightening thing of all, the sea. But she quickly made herself at home in our hotel room!
