I have just finished my first piece for the City and Guilds Patchwork and Quilting Certificate. I based it on a study of Whitepark Bay. It is in five separate sections all slightly larger than A4, to be arranged like a collection of photos on the wall. They are stretched over foam mounting board to give a firm finish
Heres a photo of each one

The Portbradden end of the Bay

The eastern end of the Bay toward Ballintoy


Pebbles and Shells

Sandals and Surf
I dyed my fabrics and used a variety of techniques as I think this is what is expected. If anyone is doing this course Id love to hear how you're finding the new syllabus.
Cant wait until this course is over and I can get out the knitting needles again.
Bye for now, Ali
