My workshop with the Hamilton Quilters Guild yesterday was great fun. The workshop was held in a lovely addition to an old church. It's so nice to teach in such a great facility with natural light. The quilters all worked hard and took in the lessons on value and colour. The quilt has a lot of work in it but rewards you with a unique quilt with the quiltmakers' personal stamp on it.
The other quilters are hard at work with their blocks.
Thanks for a great day, ladies! It's always a pleasure to spend a day with the Hamilton Quilters Guild.
One of the great pleasures of being a travelling quilting instructor is the number of friendships made all over the country. While I was in Hamilton, I stayed with my friends Anita and John of Cotton Mill Threadworks. John has introduced me to Teff flour. Our daughter is unable to eat gluten or lactose and the teff flour has no gluten. It is the closest thing to wheat flour we have ever used and we have had great success converting regular recipes to gluten free ones with the use of this flour.
Since I was there......... I indulged my thread collecting tendencies with the new King Tut thread colours. King Tut thread is my favourite for machine quilting.
