On to October

This is the month of “getting stuff done” – maybe.  We are having a high level committee meeting at HQ next week where lists and plans will be presented and approved.  Barbara is returning from the Overseas Office specifically for this event (and also to teach some classes at The Corner Patch) and C&B Towers will be closed for the day.  Chris is almost fully occupied with her various weekly classes at The Corner Patch (follow @chrisfranses on Instagram for pictures and updates ) and monthly Web Wandering for P&Q magazine. 

At the top of this post is one of our Electric Quilt doodles from last October – all suitable autumnal tones and Flying Geese.  This month’s doodles are rather different both in style and colourway –  check them out on our dedicated page.  Click on this link for a downloadable doodle to colour in  EQ Doodle Oct  

In other news we are hoping to make a special trip to the Jen Jones Quilt Museum before it closes its doors forever at the end of this year.  We have made several pilgrimages to Jen’s over the years, starting way back in 1991 – seems like only yesterday!  Below is one of our favourite quilts from Jen’s amazing collection – so graphic and stylish don’t you think?

Here’s a Flashback to one of Chris’s visits to the Land of Her Fathers – while in Wales last year she had the opportunity to visit the Jen Jones Museum in Lampeter. We’ve been lucky enough to have had a number of joint expeditions/quilt missions to Jen’s home over the years and indulge our mutual love of the Welsh quilting tradition in all it’s glory.
