Derbyshire Landscape Quilt Class

Today Ann taught a class in the shop which was quite unusual. There was no careful cutting of fabric into specific sized pieces, no need for accurate quarter inch seams, no points to match up and no pattern to follow. Instead, following Ann's guidance and using her sample as a starting point, the attendees were encouraged to be creative: they all produced their own unique quilt based loosely on the theme of a Derbyshire landscape with Heage windmill and hot air balloons as recognisable local features. The image above shows six of the attendees with their almost finished quilts (left to right - Vivien, Sally, Felicity, Rosemary, Joy and Laelia). Well done ladies!
