Pick 'n'Mix at West Watch
Region 2 of the UK Quilters' Guild hold a quilt show every September at Hever Castle. The castle provides the marquee, the stands, the catering and staff to help set up the larger quilts. The weather this year was typical Hever weather, warm and sunny despite being rainy when setting up.
I'm lucky to be a member of the Pick'n'Mix group who initially got together on the internet to swap blocks but now meet every year over Hever weekend to sew and catch up with our news. We meet at West Watch House, this time for the last time as the house is to be sold. Only six could make it this time - all the more room for those remaining! Here we are in our workroom and here too are the brown/teal/aqua blocks I am doing for a transatlantic block swap and a batik snowball quilt I added the border to.
