My Panel for the International Quilt Festival of Ireland.
Here is a close up of the torc I have stitched and then painted with gold fabric paint. I have started to free motion around it in a blue variegated thread. I will highlight the torc further using some gold foil. The picture below is of the whole panel. I have free motion quilted most of it, using different threads and pattern. It has been photographed on the floor and I think it needs to be hanging to get a better view.

Great way to spend a Sunday doing an amazing workshop with Tracy Watson. Just look at those points, her technic was extremely accurate. This was an all day workshop from 10 until 4 pm, blocks take some time to make but the results are well worth it. This workshop with Tracy is highly recommended. You can contact Tracy at
