Pat Train was the founder member of Hghnam Quilters, I will speak of her many time as she was an accomplished tutor who inspired us all to “Try it and See” She sadly died in April 2017 after a short illness.
In 2015 Pat ran a course on using curves in block and the different methods that can be used from invisible appliqué. machine appliqué. machine curves and Celtic knots.
The fabric I used was from the Downton Abbey range
UKQU Mini swap 2015
There is an excellent Facebook group called UKQU Quilters, a closed group where members published there finished items, ask for advice etc.
A sub group was formed UKQU Mini swap, I joined and was asked to complete a questionnaire mainly on like and dislikes on quilting, colour choices and designs.
We were then give a partner to make a small mini quilt, it was secret so I did not know who was making a Mini for me. Lots of question were posted on the Facebook page and I noted by partners answers. She lived in the south west and like Celtic designs. So I designed this mini quilt. She was thrilled with and said I got her “likes” just right.
The picture below the Celtic design is the mini I received. my secret partner has discovered I like Norfolk and windmill and loved Basic fabrics. A beautiful mini quilt
