Sarah Fielke Weekend

Our workshop piece

As soon as we got back it was Sarah Fielke weekend. She taught three successive workshops for Oast Quilters and I went to the Saturday one and worked on our quite complex units with friends. I'm so impressed with how Sarah managed to devise a way to make these blocks without templates or foundation piecing. Mine will be the basis of  a Linus baby quilt.
On Saturday evening she gave a talk and trunk show showing quilts spanning the time from the Material Obsession period to the present including her wonderful definition of stitch quilt. I felt very lucky to have her to stay and meet at such close quarters - she was great.
