Another great retreat with Beryl Frank

Last week saw the return of Beryl Frank to The Royal Bridlington for three fun packed days of projects.

Here are the samples Beryl made for her projects.

Day One - Logs

 Day 2 - Dresden Daisy with a twist


Day Three - Tree of Life


The blocks could be made and either used in a quilt, cushions or other for another project such as a bag.

Beryl worked out a smart cutting plan using 12 inch squares or a layer cake. When some blocks had been made Beryl demonstrated the different layouts which could be achieved.









 Day Two

Foundation piecing & setting in a circle.  I think I got so engrossed, I forgot to take pictures of this one - lol  so here is mine.  The 12 pieces of  'pie' are individually foundation pieced then joined together.



Day Three

Tree of Life -machine applique.

Beryl sharing tips for perfect applique.












A fabulous three days with lots of techniques and tips. Beryl is also a great tutor for the less experienced quilter too. She will be here again next year - dates to be announced soon on the website.
