I'm off to Toowoomba on Monday for a 2 day workshop at Precious Time, a beautiful shop in a beautiful town. Lisa has organised lots of different tutors over 2 weeks of classes and I'm lucky enough to be one of them. Thanks Lisa. I'll have some pics when I return.
In the mean time some pics from recent classes - lots of different projects just to keep me on my toes!

Bev's NYB's

Barbara is starting on Prickly Pines

Helen's Deauville is just beautiful

Rosemary was my guinea pig for this Jacobean Star class
but isn't it fabulous! Just needs one more setting triangle.

Judy is working her way thru 36 NYB blocks

Mariners Medley from a Figtree class

One day workshop on a basic mariners compass - they always look great!

Lorraine's on the "Dots" journey - love it

This is on my wall at the moment - I'm having a ton of fun
working with 30-ish fabrics and lots of doilies.
Have you seen the latest issue of Quilt Mania, the French patchwork mag? My Lots of Dots quilt is in it!! A full page pic from the Sydney Quilt Show - I'm excited! It's not in the shops yet but I've seen a subscription copy and the pic is fantastic. Did I mention it will be a BOM thru Hobbysew stores? Hopefully January 2012.
