Quilting with Jennie Rayment.

I was lucky enough to attend a workshop recently at The Quilters Den in Warwick with Jennie Rayment.  I had a wonderful day learning her latest design called Scrappy Zappy Do from her book Foldy Rolly Patchwork Pzzazz.  I had many compliments on my use of Christmas fabric which Jennie had not seen used in this design before.  In her book there is a tutorial on quilted circular place mats using the same triangles that are gently folded on there bias, (I haven't got that far yet!)  so I think I will turn this into a Christmas runner for the table with a matching set of place mats  (which won't be for a while as I am snowed under at the moment) 
 I'd love to have another workshop with Jennie, she was a very good teacher, leaving very little room for her students to make mistakes.  Her humour is lively and she entertained us beautifully.
