A Trunk Show and Teaching

This week I taught “Travel Posts” to 2 lovely talented quilters! Travel Posts is in the book Color Block Quilt Making by Elizabeth Chappell. It’s a great book and if you’re looking for quick and easy patterns – this book is for you! Essem may have this book in stock.

This is the quilt I made for the class sample. Simina helped pick out the fabrics: the coloured portions are grunge.

Anyhow, the class participants came very prepared and had their fabric all cut and labelled and were ready to roll! They finished the tops in class! Aren’t they great?

Here’s the 2nd one I did using Island Batik fabrics from the “Mystery Collection” and Island Batik solid grey.

It is quilted with Aurifil #2600 Dove Grey. I used the “Kite” ruler from Silly Moon and the swirls were free motioned.

Here’s a close-up of the quilting from the back and the front.

Trunk Show

On Tuesday night, I did a trunk show for Boundary Bay Quilt Guild. I showed 39 various Island Batik projects that I have made in the past 4 years. I didn’t show everything since I’ve given a lot of quilts away and several are still up on walls.

Many thanks to Lynn & Deb for holding up the quilts, Liz for moving them to the side of the stage, and to Amy and Linda for spreading them out! (And helping to gather and fold them afterwards!)

Here’s a portion of the show:

Quilts that are in Island Batik’s Catalogues

I have patterns available for each of these quilts.

Various Challenge Quilts

Other Quilts

And yes, I am available for “In Person” trunk shows in the lower mainland (or anywhere else if you want to pay transportation) or I also do Zoom trunk shows! I have also taught various classes via Zoom as well!

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!

  2. Hi Gail, what a lovely trunk show! Isn’t it wild how many quilts we’ve made over the years? Of course being an Island Batik ambassador sure adds to your production! Thanks for linking up to Free Motion Mavericks. I love your ruler work – I’ll have to practice that more…eventually. 🙂 Take care.

  3. Hi Gail! Wow, I am so impressed that your class attendees could complete their tops during your class. That is fabulous! The quilting looks fun – I never would have thought of the kite design but it works perfectly and is easy to adapt to various widths. The trunk show looks like so much fun. I wouldn’t like to be forced to select a favorite, but that last one with the smiling sun and stars in the corner is SO darn cute!! Nice job. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Thanks, Roseanne!
      The class participants came prepared and got to work sewing and sewing! They did a fantastic job!
      Ah, the smiling sun … I made it as a baby quilt, but have yet to give it away … one of these days! 🙂
