My granddaughter has just had her bedroom re-decorated so the request went out for a new quilt. Based on a design by Judy Laquidara of Patchwork Times, I have started a quilt, I still have the borders to put on it. When quilted I intend to attach a number of 3D butterflies I've made on my embroidery machine.

Yesterday was a great day at BSK Bedford.
The workshop was making things for Easter and I managed to make two 3D butterflies and 4 rabbits with eggs patches, which I intend to make into either a bag or use for my Easter cards.
In the evening I attended a talk by Paula Doyle on Colour Selection, wow was this an eye opener, she is an excellent speaker and by the end of the evening the tables were piled high with her wonderful quilts. Paula is writing a book on miniature quilts, which should be out later this year.. I cannot wait.
