Bayeux Discipline

What on earth does Bayeux Discipline mean?

It describes a journey I’m taking. Up to date its been a 7 year journey.

I’m recreating the Bayeux Tapestry as a quilt.

It will be the same size as the original Bayeux Tapestry  but created in a different way.

I made several panels of the quilt a few years ago, but as of the 26th of December I began all over again. This time I’m not making it in panels but as one piece 80 meters Long.

In 59 days, I’ve  completed 60 feet of applique. Of course it has to be quilted yet so the applique is just part of the event.

The drawings were done a few years ago with the first flush of adventure. I’ve taken time from my normal career as a Tutor to concentrate on the project.
I get up at 4.00 am and work till 10.30 am on the main part of my day project. However, I often work 10 – 15 hours a day.

The link above shares the journey of the past 59 days, but I’ve now created this dedicated blog to share more detailed stories and techniques.

I feel like I am Bayeux saturating my regular friends and so, if they so desire, they can visit this blog to continue the journey with me.

    Me Too Pam, I look forward to reading your blogs every evening. I am so sorry that you have been ill… has been here too. Don’t forget to rest, i know that’s hard for you but when your body tells you to slow down there is a reason. As with the tapestry, it is really coming along beautifully, the detail is going to be incredible. Hugs for you, Lynn
