Then while at Gregynog I bought two of Kathryn Berenson's books - one on the Guicciardini Tristan Quilt in the Bargello Museum in Italy - the other on Marseille work. Both are very well researched.
There was a table with books and other things (including old quilts) that members had brought to sell - BQSG received 20% of the sale price. Via Pauline Adams I bought two quilting frames -this one is of very traditional design, and formerly belonged to Angela Brocklebank. This frame is smaller (not full size) and I have plans to use a special length of fabric to make a cot quilt to try this frame out.
The other frame is more modern, formerly belonging to Madeleine Howard who lives in Essex. This is a larger frame with folding legs. I shall have to try and use these for some of my quilting projects. As you may remember, I use a plastic Q-Snap quilting frame which has served me well for many years. But it will be nice to try these two quilting frames out. I'll let you know how I get on, in due course.
Next few posts - back to old quilts!!
