.....since I've posted on my blog! I was in Canada for almost three months and have just recently returned home to Denmark. It's been taking a while to get back to my daily routine, but things are gradually returning to normal! I'm missing our little grandchildren very, very much, as well as all our family and friends, but we've already begun to make plans for an up-coming trip next year!
I visited a few quilt shops while in Canada, all in BC where I'm originally from, and will post a little "Shop Hop" for you all to check out! It's so great seeing what other quilters are up to in different parts of the world!
This pic is from Kismet Quilts in Port Alberni, British Columbia. A great shop...I'll be posting more pics soon!!!
This past weekend, I attended a class on Orinuno Quilting, a truly fantastic form of patchwork from Japan, taught by Lisbet Borggren. Here in Denmark, it's known as Japanese Folding Technique.
This form of reversible patchwork is very unique, in that the pattern is totally different on the back of the quilt than on the front. It is also quilted before it is sewn together, so you have a finished project right away! My style of quilt!!
Lisbet provided us with a fantastic day of teaching, as well as a trunk-show consisting of several of her gorgeous creations. Lisbet has learnt this technique from Sachiyo Muraki, a renowned Japanese quilter who has won numerous awards for her talents.
My project is an Ohio Star block with an interesting twist on the back-side! I'll post a pic when it's all assembled!
I hope there's still a few readers/followers left here on my blog! Three months is a long time to be away....I look forward to hearing from you all again!!!
