ALQS6 - again

Another contender for ALQS6.
Its a new technique I have been working on and one that I am going to adapt for the ‘Quick & Easy’ workshops at the ICHF Show in Cardiff at the end of this month.

3Needless to say, the colours are so much better than shown.
The leaf idea came from one of my lovely students on the 4S summer school I gave recently. She had made a book using the technique in the Workshop on the Web article. It was really wonderful and I was so taken with it that I decided to have a go at autumn leaves myself. I shall be seeing her again soon at a workshop in Acton so hopefully she will bring the book along again and I shall ask if I can photograph it and name her.
Take a look at the ALQS6 blog as there are photos going up already of quilts that are being swapped – and it’s still not too late to put your name down!
And have you seen the new book cover? It really is fabulous. :) Not long to go now.
Well, I am an avid ‘Strictly’ fan – first show tonight – but I must admit the line up this year doesn’t look too promising. There’s a few that I have never heard of and a couple I am not too keen on. I did meet Anita Dobson several years ago and she is a really lovely lady so I shall follow her for the moment but we will see. :)

Anything with autumn leaves is good by me and I love the surface you have created here. I've made a note of your new book and am poised and ready to order my copy.

Leafy things looking good [I've been doing things with leaves this week too, must be that time of year]& the book cover looks fab.

I must have been on the moon, I didn't know you had a book on the way! I agree, the cover looks very tempting. Lovely effect with the leaves, you may just have tempted me to sort something out for the swap.

I love the leaves and am waiting for the book.

Love the leaves. Sadly Cardiff is too far away.
Good luck with the book launch. It should sell well. Put one by for me.

I love the leaf samples. Maybe I can come to one of your workshops in Cardiff. I look forward to seeing lots of blogland people in real life there :)

Lynda, I just love the cover for the new book. And as for the autumn leaves..........welll.!!!!!
You just keep on going, don't you?
Funny, though that you have done that, because That is the theme for my quilt ALS6. But not nearly as good as yours. What did youmake the leaves out of? And I really LOVE the shading of the background and leaves. That is what I have the most trouble with.

Your quilt swop is wonderful, a lucky person will be proud to own it soon. Looking forward to the new book.

Happened upon your very interesting blog while surfing the net a bit. I've enjoyed your textile work/play. Your surface designs are marvelous, just such great texture--I'd love to see them in person and up close.
best from Tunisia,

Love the autumn leaves. I bet you're really excited about the book coming out. The cover is beautiful.
