Jill Buckley--The Quilt Rat

The above photo shows how Jill prepared for my Woodland Creatures workshop at the London Friendship Quilters' Guild by making a little mock up of the block (see the little one in the lower left corner) to see if she was happy with her fabric choices. Also shown is the full size block that she prepared in the workshop--now ready for needle and thread.
Her fabric choices are based on the fact that when the bunnies visit her garden (usually to nibble favourite plants) it is early morning, so she wanted this piece to have that dappled sun effect.

Jill writes on her blog "Yesterday, I attended a workshop conducted by Rosemary Makhan who led us through a wonderful day of learning her applique method. Those of you who are regular readers know that not only do I rarely work with someone else's patterns, I generally am not a flowery type quilter. That just might all change after the last couple of days.
Seeing Rosemary's work on her web site is one thing but seeing it up close and personal is entirely different. I don't think you can look at her amazing work and not be inspired. We were treated to her trunk show at guild on Thursday evening .....each time you thought it could not possibly get any better another spectacular quilt emerged. If you ever have a chance to take a class with Rosemary, take my advice, do NOT pass up the opportunity."

Thank you so much for your very kind comments, Jill. I am including a link to Jill's blog The Quilt Rat so that you can see more of Jill's prize winning work, her musings, and her wonderful doodles.
