Sunday WIP

A few months ago I bought a great quilting book, that I am so in love with, the “Material Obsession“, and started stydying.
At about the same time in a village nearby, I discovered free quilting and patchwork classes! Our teacher has just showed as how to make the dresden plate block. One of my favorite quilts in the book is one involving dresden plates, that I considered them really difficult to sew. But I thought I should give it a try.
I spend a whole day searching through my stack of fabrics, and I decided to go with two lines: Annie’s Farm Stand and Riley Blake’s Sew Cherry, and the results so far:

+First cutting
+Assembling
 

My main problem is that I have to buy some fabric for the backing and also for the middle circles, since the one I have is clearly not enough.
To be continued…

Welcome to Zarkadia Quilting Co.!

Quilts are the most intimate and personal of objects. They connect us with each other to the primal ground of the bed-the place we spend half our lives; where we are born, sleep, have sex, and die; the place where we replenish ourselves and dream our dreams; the place of nurture and healing, where we retreat in sickness and frailty; and the place where we receive the comfort and care of those who love us.

Hello Theodora! You are so right: very few people know quilting, even though it is an art very famous all over the world..
I am so very lucky to be participating in these classes, and my teacher is Mrs Myrto, a lady who lives and gives classes in Athens. She has been giving classes in this village for about 9 years now, and the students are a lot (about 30 this year).
