I was interested to see Tia Curtis' blog post today - "Has a box of treasure ever turned up in your mailbox?" Marjorie Horton sent Tia some lovely items including templates and photos - all to do with Welsh quilting. Tia does quilts "Welsh style" on her long arm quilting machine - with strikingly good results, as you can see in some of the older posts. Find the most recent post here:
Marjorie Horton has started a blog as well, which you can see here:
Although I read Marjorie's explanation of the larger and slightly crooked stitches she makes on cotton sateen, I'm not sure that I really understand it! I'm sure that the old time quilters just did their stuff and didn't have time to worry about the stitches too much - or perhaps the old fashioned sateen is different to the modern sateen? What do you think?
You can buy a copy of Marjorie Horton's book on Welsh quilt design from Jen Jones, the cost is £12 plus P & P, see here...
I am hoping to visit Jen's most recent exhibition in early July after I go to LLanidloes to deliver the quilts.
More posts tomorrow....
