Lynne Edwards First Trip to The Royal Bridlington

Today saw the first day of the retreat here at The Royal Bridlington with the fabulous Lynne Edwards MBE.

Today the project was rolled back curves.  Here is lynne's Example



We made the middle block then rolled back the bias edges to create the curves.






These are some students work in progress





















Curves rolled back
















Lynne also showed us examples of the same block but smaller & more suitable for a cushion.


and then how the block can be incorporated into a quilt


and then what happens if a larger curve is used


She then showed us examples of other designs which can be made using similar blocks & techniques and very generously gave us the pattens for all of them.





Mary brought a couple of sampler quilts that she had made from Lynnes book to show too.





We have all had a fabulous day with Lynne and are looking forward to her quilt show this evening and another two fun packed days.
