FRAZZLED AND DAZZLED - Talk by ALISON BRAMLEY

Friday 11th March 2005

 

FRAYED FOLIAGE - Workshop by ALISON BRAMLEY

Saturday 12th March 2005

 

Alison uses bright coloured silks with a raw edge appliqué technique.

  

Alison Bramley gave a very interesting talk on the Friday evening. Her quilts were many and varied using the method of frayed cut back appliqué worked out by herself. Some of her quilts have won awards and others are featured in books. They were all very inspiring and we couldn't wait for the day course on Saturday when we could have a go!

The following are a small selection of the quilts Alison has made.

Everyone concentrating.

This proved to be quite tricky.

We thoroughly enjoyed our day with Alison Bramley, and some of us have now finished the items we started on this inspiring course.
