Twisting....

I know that I haven't posted in a while, but we have been so busy in the shop that there just hasn't been time to make anything, let alone blog about it. But yesterday we had Jill Adamson in the shop teaching the second part of her bargello twist quilt course and I was lucky enough to take part (while poor Julie was left to man the shop! But don't worry, the tables will soon turn....)

We had lots of fun, lots of laughs and Anita didn't let us down with her cinnamon and pecan cake (yummy!). But there was lots of concentration today, as we had to start piecing our strips together and a bargello twist is quite a challenging pattern. However, once we got started it all became clear, and, apart from the occasional 'dammit' we all ran away with it! There were 7 of us today, and here are the fabulous results....

Mine is the one with the black twist (I just HAVE to be different!) They are all brilliant and I can't wait to see what they all look like when they are finished!

I was so inspired after finally getting a chance to get sewing that I carried on once I got home! It wont be finished by next weekend... but I am determined that it wont become another UFO!
