Stained Glass with Gail Lawther

Gail Lawther is with us at The Royal Bridlington for a three day retreat / workshops.

The morning started after coffee and homemade biscuits with a quilt show by Gail. Her quilts are truely stunning - but I'm sorry I'm not allowed to post pics of all of them which is a shame because they are really worth seeing.

Today was stained glass - one of Gails signature techniques. The ladies had a choice of Mackintosh Rose, Rialto Bridge or Gondola Scene.







We started with reverse applique techniques for the larger areas then the smaller ones were applied with Bondaweb before the fusable bias was added and machined in place using a twin needle.

So here is some work in progress





This is Sue with her rose





And later this evening some of us manged to get them finished.

Here is my Rialto Bridge


Heather displaying her Rialto Bridge









Heather has also brought her Japanese Inspirations which she started with Pat Archibald a couple of weeks ago


So Tomorrow we have a choice of a Seacape or Maouri Curves.
