John Willard workshop


Hi and I hope you are all having a wonderful weekend!

A few weeks ago … a number of us from the Burlington Fibre Arts attended a workshop with quilt artist John Willard. It was a wonderful Sunday afternoon, with so much to learn and friends to share it with!

Below you will see some photos on my piece from the start with a small 8x8 black and white printed square and the addition of strips and more strips and the some angled squares until finally the finished quilt top. You will see some of the squares from my workshop mates as well!

Enjoy!


My piece at the start



Workshop mate - amazing!


This is an attractive pile of fabrics …



And this how many of the quilt tops turned out at the end of the day! A beautifully riot of colour and personality!







We had a great time and enjoyed the teachings of John … and of course each others company!
Have a wonderful spring and Happy Easter

Many best wishes,
Barbara

I love John Willard!! He was the beginning of me be fearless with cutting and forget the measuring...which I always hated. I also love the use of black & white...a technique that has followed me into my fibre collages.
