This took place on our stand at the West Country Quilt and Textile Show Nov 2016 and Lynette shares with us some great ideas from her stand.
Known as “The Stitch Witch” Lynette Harris is well known for her distinctive hat and easily spotted at all the major quilt shows.
She shares with us some of the inspiration that she sells on her stand – from the simple idea of folded triangles to create 3D baubles (and bells)- which is a workshop here on the site
to creating a small picture panel book;
other ideas include a small cot quilt kit made with crazy dog panels;
sampler patterns on the quilt-as-you-go method both Spring and Winter;
her Dahlia cushion kit in peach (or in pink) which is a great use of coloured fabric and shadow quilting;
making good use of foundation piecing in her Oval Mariners compass pattern,
through to using stick-on bias to create a range of celtic designs – or learn how to create your own in another workshop Lynette did for us.
and then moving on to stained glass patchwork with her Butterfly and/or The 3 Kings project.
and at the end of it all – her top tip? – start small – that way you won’t be overfaced by the size of the project and get it finished;
and be inspired by the fabric(s) – well aren’t we all!
thank you Lynette.
