Meeting Sarah Fielke

Thursday the 28th of July I joined Sarah Fielke's workshop at  Dorry's  quiltshop in Overloon:  Quilt it & Dotty . We made one block from her 'Sunflowers and hearts quilt'

Sarah's instructions were clear and she took the time to answer all of our questions even though we had a big group of ladies. We had a lot of fun and I met several ladies for the first time, but also other bloggers. 

The workshop included Sarah's new book: 'Old quilts new life' . I love to read and browse quilt books so I was more than happy with this. It is a fun book with lots of pictures including the antique quilts Sarah used for inspiration.
 
Funny enough I have just a small part on photo of her Sunflowers and hearts quilt. Lots of different pinks for the background which I like.

Dorry took care of us during the day. Lunch and Dinner were included, not to forget coffee, tea and cakes!

After dinner Sarah (on the right) told us her quilting life story and showed quilts from a suitcase taken all the way from Australia. This is her quilt called: 'Dotty for Dresden' (book: Material Obsession), which gave a big smile on Dorry's face (on the left). Both like dots!

This quilt is called: 'Charlotte sometimes' ( book: Material Obsession 2). On top is a small quilt from Sarah' s book: 'Little quilts', still on my wish list.

 I love this quilt called: 'All that and the hatter'. Future project???

 Sarah uses lots of animals in all her quilts, in sometimes unexpected places.

 And just one more photo of this quilt....

 We had lovely weather so the trunkshow was held in the garden.

Here a close-up of that small quilt Sarah is holding.

This is from the book: 'Quilting from little things', but my book is in Dutch and called: 'Quilten met Sarah Fielke'. So I only know the Dutch name of the quilt: 'Molentje' . It is a fun quilt with a beautiful fabric in the corners  from Anna Maria Horner.

 The border is very special and fun!!!

 Another fun quilt. If you want to learn how to make these words and letters you can go to Sarah's Craftsy class

Thanks Dorry and Sarah for this wonderful day!!!

If you want to read more about this day and see more pictures I saw two more posts: Ingrid and Anja

Have a creative weekend,

Groetjes

I too think you are lucky to spend a day with Sarah and fellow stitchers. I found so much inspiration reading this post about it. Thank you for sharing and I would love to make the Hatters quilt too.
