Day two of the Lutradur Forest Workshop saw the ladies layering and stitching their Forest designs to their base fabric.
As often happens in a workshop, although all of the ladies worked constantly over the two day’s and the quilts are looking terrific, everyone has some finishing off to do at home.
Clare is adding clumps of bluebells to her Forest floor, hand embroidering them with Colonial knots
Janet’s design featured trees in leaf as well as these wonderful old gnarly tree stumps
Sue created lots of depth with her shading
Clair based her design on a photo she took while visiting a Canadian lake in the Fall
Janice is making lots of individual leaves which will be added to the foreground on the right of her design
Patricia has created a very strong contrast with her dark foreground tree and the lighter grey trunks in the background
Lyn will add stitched detail the her ferns to create interest in the foreground
Thanks to Nicola at the Simply Stitch Studio for being a wonderful host and to all the ladies for their enthusiasm and hard work. I will look forward to receiving photos of your finished quilts.
