Katharine Guerrier workshop 01
Last Saturday Katharine Guerrier came to talk to us at Oast. Her quilts from the very first hexagon effort were very distinctive and all had a special something. She's written several books but my favourite is her latest "Scrap quilt sensation" as the quilts are stunning though shapes and technique are accessible to beginners and they really are made up of SCRAPS not FQ collections like so many and it's the multiplicity of these that gives her quilts their look. She did 3 workshops for us and I went to the Monday one to make or rather embark on this star quilt. The photos are of Katharine's quilts! I've included one made from half square triangles as well.
