Out and about again

Have you seen the latest issue of Australian Country Craft and Decorating?
My quilt Peony Circle is a project in the mag and is featured on the front cover!

I've recently been to Hobbysew Belconnen (a suburb of Canberra)
for a 2-day workshop on Basic mariners Compass and Basic New York Beauty blocks.
Here are a few pics - lovely shop and we all had a great time playing.

 Now to Bathurst and Janette's NYB quilt finished and bound.
She quilted it herself and has done a fine job as you can see.

 Figtree now and Susanne's Mariners Medley is done. All from her stash too.
 I go to Blackheath once a fortnight to sew with a lovely group in the church hall.
This is on the wall and watching over us - isn't it beautiful.
Keeps the conversation polite as you never know who's watching do you!
I have combined with the Hobbysew group to make my Lots of Dots quilt into a Block-of-the-month project. I'm busy re-writing the patterns to suit (big job with 26 blocks!) and it should be released early 2012. I'll keep you posted but I am VERY excited.


  1. Mmmmmmm, the bom sounds interesting, and congrats on a front cover!!

  2. Chris, your designs have so much life and movement - just glorious! It must be very exciting to see how other quilters interpret them with their own fabric choices. Congratulations on the bom and the published pattern - wow! A cover girl!

  3. The BOM news is so exciting!! There'll soon be lots of Lots of Dots quilts everywhere! The Peony Quilt is beautiful and deserves to be a cover girl!
