New project

No pics this time of class quilts but here are students in action! There was so much fun and laughter on Saturday at The Vintage Patch it was hard to keep everyone under control let me tell you.
These girls sure know how to have a good time!

Have you seen the latest issue of Australian Country Craft? I have a project on the cover. It's the cushion pictured made from the original French General range using a dresden plate ruler and pieced wedges.
Lovely pics as always from the magazines.
I've found a blogger who does her applique the same way as me - over freezer paper then sewn with the paper still in and then removed through the back of the piece. Have a look here at some   beautiful work by Karla Menaugh.                                              I'm off to Bathurst tomorrow for a special one-off class with a group of girls who've driven all the way from Coonamble to sew at the Home Patch. They'll be attacking the New York Beauty block head on and I expect some great results from the class.
