Pat Archibald Workshop at Hamtune Quilters

Tuesday 13th July Pat Archibald thrilled us with a slide show of her inspirational work. With a trip around the world we were
shown the inspiration to many of her designs, from Africa to Australia via America and Scotland.
This was followed on Wednesday with a day long workshop.
I was thrilled to be able to make the design in red and black, based on the Harris Tweed production in Scotland complete with a Celtic cross we learnt how to use gold foils, bias tapes, and metallic threads. Pat is shown in the first photo complete with our esteemed leader Cathy.
ps. the cake was delicious!
