Joke Buursma Workshop 12th April

Joke Buursma gave her "Mended Circles" Workshop in Villiers School on the 12th April.

This workshop used either bonded or raw edge appliqued circles which were machine quilted using a variety of machine stitches. This was the perfect opportunity to use some of the fancier stitches on some of the machines.

After spending most of the day working on the pieces, eventually the pieces had to be stacked on top of each other and cut through. This part was a bit nerve-wracking in case the pieces were ruined!
This workshop was very much enjoyed by all the attendees. And quite unusually for a workshop, most peoples' pieces were almost finished by the end of the day.

And as can be seen from the picture below, everyone's pieces were all quite different because of the variations in fabric and stitch colour.
