More Students Beautiful Work
I love to see my student's work completed.
One of my lovely Richmond ladies, Mary, has spent some time "finishing" some of her PhDs. That's Projects Half Completed, to the uninitiated!
Here are the results. The first is the "Lydia" table runner which featured in a recent edition of Homespun magazine. Mary made hers in soft shades of blue, pink and green on a gorgeous yellow background. She made the ric rac vine with leaves and circles like my original but she has added some beautiful little wool felt appliqué flowers in the centre hexagons. It is gorgeous!
The next project Mary finished is her "Pamela" handbag with some bold red on black floral on the outside. Her handbag includes some hand moulded and painted flower and leaf buttons.
Next is Mary's magnificent "Harriet" quilt. I made this quilt as one of my history inspired projects for Quilters' Companion magazine which were published last year. Mary loved the fabrics and bought a double kit to make the quilt bigger. She certainly made lots of little blocks and the quilt now sits as a footer to her bed. Her husband says he loves it too! Here it is just laid out on her blanket box.
And a close up.
Here is some progress made on Sue's "Pemberley" centre. It is so beautiful.

I hope you all get lots of stitching time! Katrina x
