In the afternoon I did an improvisation workshop with Chris English where we moved along at a brisk pace but also in a free and easy atmosphere. We were working towards making a porthole cushion cover, We all received a detailed pattern and I was pleased with the porthole technique which I'll return to,

At the end of the afternoon I went round the Traditional section singling out quilts by friends and ones of interest.
