Next up was Trudi with her Free Motion Quilting Classes
My FMQ Practice Piece:
Sunday Morning went by with Ruth’s Trapunto Class.
Here’s my slightly overstuffed heart:
Here’s our Secret Sample Swap Group: (from left to right: Kathy, me, Sue, Mandy)
And this is our lot: buntings, mug rugs, embroidered placemats/centrepieces and fabric baskets.
The Scrappy Strip Swap:
Besides, there was the Quilt Market in the Main Hall…
And last but not least, a generous goodiebag:
with fabrics, thread and a variety of notions. Thanks you very much, dear sponsors!
Lots and lots of chatting, laughing and stitching…
… a quick visit to the V&A Museum with Liz, who was ill last year and whom I finally met in person this year. It is so much fun to get to know online pals after all that blog reading, emailing and commenting. Thanks for taking me to the V&A, Liz!!!
And then there was some sightseeing on Sunday afternoon and Monday morning. Thank you very much, Carol, Lizzy, Sue and especially to you, Ann!
Thank you everyone (FQ Team, Teachers, Sponsors, Fellow Attendants, and BPH staff) for making this weekend memorable!
