Pat Archibald Retreat

Pat Archibald from Edinburgh is here with us for the next three days.
Pat not only started Scotland first dedicated patchwork shop - Purely Patchwork, but her work is exhibited world wide with many awards too.

Today is Ghost Images




The ghost image of the boat is made up of layers of net - more layers where the darkest colour.

After all the layers of net have been added the sun was added by using foil & bondaweb.

The edges of the boat next need to be couched, then the sea quilted and some stars need to be sew on to complete the project.

We finished off today with a bit of a quilt show from Pat. Her work is truly amazing and the pictures really do not do it justice - but here are few anyway.























We have all had a super day and we are looking forward to tomorrows project - Celtic Connection.


Heather brought her Scrappy Stars quilt to show. This was started in a recent workshop here with Katharine Guerrier.
