On Wednesday night Lutterworth Piecemakers hosted Phillipa Naylor. What a fabulous evening! She is an entertaining whirlwind, with an insightful run through her careers and a chance to hear about how she goes about creating her amazing award winning quilts.

She has so many talents and a huge appetite for getting things done, achieving so much already.
She showed us how she went about designing her"Star Sign" quilt, winning the IQA Pfaff Master Award for machine artistry. The complexity of its construction, the degree of planning were awe inspiring and then to see and touch the quilt itself, an honour.

She also brought her "Daisy Quilt" a whole-cloth piece with just about the most quilting I've ever seen on one item. Beautifully executed with lovely trapunto areas and piping which created such a strong 3D effect. The quilting itself was very beautiful, but us ordinary mortals then had to go through a show and tell session - very humbling after all those stunning quilts!
