7 November Friday Showcase: Liz Bonner

Name a quilting technique, she's tried it! Name a quilting gadget, she's tried it too. Liz Bonner was encouraged to start quilting by her partner and has gone on to make a wide variety of quilts from intricate hand applique to classic bow tie blocks in Amish tones; from Jan Mullen crazy housez to sashiko elegance. Come and see for yourself at the Friday showcase at the Guild office, 10 am on Friday 7 November.
