Flattery will get you everywhere

When I got a letter from the Guild asking me as, and I quote 'one of our well known and admired quiltermakers' , to make something for the Tombola at the Festival of Quilts, I had to say yes before they realise they're got me muddled up with someone else...

This fabric is the some of the hand dyed silk I bought at last year's Festival from Frieda Anderson and Laura Wasilowski

Lovely gorgeous stuff although more than a little slippery and I didn't want to pin it too much in case the pins left marks. So I decided to make four at the same time (it also gives you more to hang on to)
I did Patsy Thompson type fireworks on three of them (I highly recommend her DVD on feathers)
And the backs look pretty too.


  1. I never get tired of looking at your feathers. What is a "Tombola"?

  2. really love those feathers sally. great that you are getting more ecognition.
