Judy is on a NYB journey with fantastic results so far. Great use of batiks and hand-dyes. It turns out she's a friend of a friend twice removed. Life's amazing sometimes.
Margaret is one of my older students and has been sewing up a storm. The blocks were made and sewn up in four weeks and they are all 6" blocks. What a woman.
This is part of my new project - or one of them. It all started with the fabric below which is on the border of this version of the good old dresden plate. It includes some foundation piecing in the triangle border and lots of applique. I loved doing this top and am a bit sorry it's finished.
Just need to quilt it now.
On Friday I had the pleasure of being the guest quilter for show and tell at The Cottage Quiltworks in Warriewood. What a lovely shop - beautiful premises and great fabric. If you haven't been there yet put it on the list. Really nice girls and did I tell you their fabric was great! I have been invited to teach at their Quilt Retreat in July - five days of classes with 10 different tutors - and I will start regular classes there on the 2nd Saturday of the month from July onwards. Give them a ring if you're interested in joining me on a Mariners journey.
Had a really nice Mothers Day today - went to Ikea with my daughter and even had meatballs. It was a lovely day and had some retail therapy too. Hope yours was just as good.
