Creative Threads Conspiracy 2017

Last weekend, on October 20 and 21, I took two workshops at the Creative Threads Conspiracy.

Ionne McCauley taught an innovation quilting workshop on the Friday, called "Square Pegs in Round Holes".

Auditioning fabrics. The background is a linen/cotton fabric from Dressew. The Japanese woven thread cottons are from A Threaded Needle online shop.

The pieced block. Now, what to do with four of these?

Two placemats and a table runner.

Detail of the backing and the narrow binding, of which I am very proud. Stitching the back of the binding was the only handwork, as all the rest was done by machine.
