Oast Quilters workshop

More of Maggie's samples

Maggie's table

I went to a wonderful workshop both informative and enjoyable - the two things don't always combine.. It was so popular
Maggie Kingston had to do three days running. We were shown just the triangle star hexagons in the morning and then in the afternoon how to make the stars float and add a frame. I may need to add frames to mine as  I am using Malaysian batiks, many units with low contrast, a "blended" effect, otherwise known as splodge but at least it's an aesthetic blue splodge. It was great seeing all the different fabric choices. All straight line piecing and everybody's looked very accurate. Maggie was very generous with her handouts including instructions for smaller projects using this teachnique.
My batiks

Someone used New Zealand fabrics

Judging from the Featherweight in the background I
think these were Alison's.
