I taught a Twisted Sisters workshop for Oast using Ami Simms templates and pattern. Many chose to make their own quilts but others used fabric provided to make a charity quilt. The charity workers worked on another project in the afternoon to break up the day. It was a lovely hall and I enjoyed the day.
Here are the orange and calico charity colourways and Monica's quilt started in the same workshopwith Ami I went to at the Cabot Quilt Conference and now a nearly completed top.

This is the Oast raffle quilt made by Crab & Winkle. It's very different from previous ones and not to everyone's taste but we are very proud of the promptitude with which it was made, the quality of the work (we allowed for the directional fabric) and the beautifully coordinated colours. I love the use of black. I think it's a classic and would appeal to men as well as women. The longarm quilting was done by Smart Frog.

Firstly Melanie's Twisted Sisters which many of us have done using Ami Simms' pattern and template. I've just received another shipment for a final workshop next Saturday.
The Hidden Wells quilts were made in a Crab & Winkle workshop, Mary's in vibrant colours and Pam's in prints. If I was the "mother" of these, Judi was the grandmother as I practised and learnt Hidden Wells from her and we all drew on Internet sources too. I think Mary Ellen Hopkins was the original instigator of this fascinating technique.
This is another mystery of mine completed by a member of Rambling Roses.
These then are quilts at the show in which I had a part to play. Margaret's quilt with hearts was a mystery quilt I set long ago, so long I didn't recognize it at first till I read the programme.
