Quiltmania are pleased to present Jo Colwill’s, of Cowslip Workshops, first book with them! It is dedicated to themes near and dear to Jo’s heart…the countryside, nature, animals and sewing. Jo’s attention to detail is evident in all of her work. Scenes inspired by the English countryside are irresistibly charming and her appliqué work is detailed and precise. Jo’s work draws on everyday life in the country—filled with animals from her farm, flowers from her garden and meadows where the sheep graze that stretch as far as the eye can see. There are also scenes of country fairs and a darling Noah’s ark. Each quilt is accompanied by adorable pie-crust cushions. This book is full of warmth and charm that wonderfully illustrates the soul of its author. The 16 projects presented are for all experience levels—each carefully detailed and illustrated. As an added bonus, you will be treated to a photo guided tour.
Jo Colwill is the founder and owner of Cowslip Workshops. Situated on an old country farm, it’s an idyllic location for Jo’s patchwork shop, organic café and classrooms, including a huge exhibition barn. Her workshops are taught by some of the best teachers from around the world. Located in the lush Cornwall countryside, this little corner of paradise brings together all of Jo’s passions: fabrics, quilts, teaching and food. Take a break in her café serving foods and produce from the area, including famous scones accompanied with clotted cream and strawberry jam!
The quilts in this book are quilted by Sandy Candler of The Quilting Company.
