Out and About with Marion Robertson

This week you can enjoy the Worn Threads Exhibition from the West Country Quilt & Textile Show back in November 2016. This exhibition consists of work from the Thames Valley Contemporary Textile group  and we thank Marion Robertson for being our hostess and showing us around the exhibition. We get to see Marion’s own work as well as work from Kate Findlay, and Kate Crossley – so do make sure you watch and see her killer shoes  Watch Now+

Pineapple Quilt with Jennie Rayment

Pineapples with Jennie Rayment

The symbol of hospitality, this delightful pattern is a variation on log cabin – since it just uses strips;  the 45 degree angle can be  a little bit of a challenge but the new EZ pineapple ruler takes care of that – helpful and really useful for those who like gadgets, but not essential (it wasn’t around when Valerie made her version!). Watch Now+

Hopscotch Quilt from Anne Baxter

Hopscotch with Anne Baxter 

Great use of 12 Fat 1/’4 to make this lovely scrappy looking quilt – enough for the borders too
And/or you could raid you stash – we really think this is another of those patterns that can be adapted;  it’s easy to make, would work in so many colour ways – including shirt fabrics – and therefore addictive! Watch Now +

LSS Eveing Lecture with Jennie

22nd April 2017
7.30pm, Red Lion Hotel, Henley on Thames

From tucking, pleating, weaving, twiddling and fiddling, marvel at the wealth of ideas and designs that arise from simple folding techniques. Beware the talk contains not just an amazing amount of Show and Tell but a bit of stripping too (in the nicest possible way)!
