I’m lucky to have met some very talented people here in South Africa.
One of the most talented and prolific quilters I know is my friend F. An embarrassingly long time ago she gifted me with some little squares. The centre of the logcabin block was 1 inch cut. Pause to consider the implications here…The rest of the block finished at 4 1/2 inches and the strips were 1 1/2 inches cut.
I added some triangles to make a square in a square and some sashing and ended up with this.
A close up.
My long armer has closed her business and retired to the UK. The fabric store side of her business I can live without, I don’t know what I’m going to do for a quilter now though.
This has been finished for quite a while, but I’ve had problems getting decent pictures. Eventually I just decided to show you the quilt using pictures that weren’t blurry.
Another very talent person I know is thewren. I’ve been wanting one of these bags since I first saw the prototype being tested by one of my colleagues.
It’s made from a cement bag. Here is a link to more pictures.
The third talented person is my fibre dealer Carlé.
This is my latest spin from her.
Tussah silk singles.
And this is what happened within 5 seconds of taking that picture.
The cat tried to claim it as his own.
