As always there is plenty going on at the worn and washed work station, and also with worn and washed sewers who have very kindly sent me pictures of their talents, thank you for sending me the pictures, in no particular order here are some of them.
This shabby chic was made from a bundle exhibited at Olympia in March,
the “gustav” based gift was purchased by mail and the flannel quilt was a bundle purchased as a gift and made in record time.
The pink Liberty started with a small sample pack which I added to and the end result is a lovely display of prints, machine quilted with great skill.
My show and event plans for the year are still in progress, there are plenty of opportunities for “worn and washed”, please check here or the facebook page for updates on which shows I will be attending this year.
I have plenty of Liberty sample pieces in every colour and design so there is still time to join the library for the February selection.
Two new quilts came off my production line, pictured with Mabel who arrived at Christmas, a new “old blue strippy” currently undergoing hand quilting, in wavy lines less than 1/2″ apart, and the “pistachio” confection which has some interesting texture, including some lacy bits, heartily washed Liberty and vintage treasures.
For the first quarter of the year I am working on several new colour combination as always I am also open to new ideas, so if you have an idea or would like one of the regular colourways, just contact me and I will get it started.
