Results of Irene MacWilliam’s Design Workshop

Evidence of designing our own blocks, at the end of Irene‘s two-day workshop. The larger ones are four single blocks sewn together, which is where the magic starts revealing itself!

A Wooden Iron

One of the things quilter Irene MacWilliam showed during the workshop (Design and Construction for the Frightened) she gave us on Wednesday and Thursday was this wedge of smooth wood. It’s ideal for flattening a fold or seam, and apparently Amish in origin.

Irene said she was given it by someone who said she could have it if she could guess what it was!
