Banbury workshop

One of the half day workshops was with Leslie Harwood who hails from the USA originally. Her class was the only machine one and the subject was precise piecing which was certainly a characteristic of her own work which was immaculate. We used foundation piecing to make a house block but the real purpose was to demonstrate a method which involved very little fabric wastage. Her accuracy and precision enabled her to make some exquisite miniature quilts which she passed round.

I love those colorful houses and the setting as well. That must have been a fun event.
