Clarice Cliff wall hanging


Managed to complete this wall hanging last night at the Hamtune Quilters [Northampton ] meeting.
It was made at an Oakleaf workshop with Gail Lawther.
To make things more difficult for myself I use silk fabric from Thailand, and to handle the fraying problem with silk, backed every piece [ before cutting out] with thin iron-on vilene. The piece were placed onthe design and then iron-on tape covered the joins and using a zig zag stitch with a twin needle I completed the design. I have three more of these patterns from Gail I would like to make when I get a spare minute !!

Totally awesome blog.
I'll visit often to see all your incredible pieces of art.
I also want to come and play in your room.
hugs to all.

What a week of ups and downs

Sunday started so well as I went to church but then I hit an uneven curb in the church yard. The damage did not look too bad but it ruined ...
