I saw this show last night and enjoyed it very much. Many years ago (and that is before I kept track of what I'm doing) I read an article about the Isle of Man technique and had to try it. I especially loved the possibility to make some kind of design on the back too. I made a big quilt and I put a very thin batting in it. I was surprised of how much fabric went into it and how heavy it went, but it has served as a picnic quilt for all these years. It is faded and nearly worn out.. Will try to figure out when it was made
. A search in Quilter's Newsletter's index gives this: Isle of Man, issue 301 (1998):pages 22-23 and I'm pretty sure that is the article, so my quilt is made in 1998-1999, which again fits with it being exhibited in 1999, which was the 5 years birthday of the little guild I was in at that time.
Thank you to TQS for bringing this up, so I can remember things
Now, when I took some photos to show you, I realized, that I didn't follow the instructions on all the measurements
. I wanted bigger blocks and so I did. Block size is 27 cm/approx. 10.5".
