Class pics

Remember this dahlia segment from a few weeks ago?

Well it's turned into this! Silk and satin make up the dresden centre and it's just beautiful. Lovely work Prue who's only been patchworking for a couple of years.

Rosemary is winging it with this compass centre. What to do next she says - more borders I say. It's been an interesting exercise working out the fabrics and the maths! but it's going to be great.

This is Rachael's ENORMOUS quilt for the Springwood Quilt Show - it took two to hold it up and it still sagged.
Love those geese.

And this is what Rachael bought me for my recent birthday complete with varmint.
I can put my orchid/geranium or whatever is in flower inside this and the possums can't eat it!
Thanks so much Rachael - I love it - and the dotty ribbon. Pancho in the background couldn't care less!

What the lovely ladies of Blackheath are wearing these days! Looks a bit nautical doesn't it but we did all have a laugh.

Now two quilts from the same pattern - Judy's first then Rosemary's.

Don't they look good - you can see the Jacobean Star pattern here.
I am teaching this at AQC in four weeks time!! So excited and just a bit nervous. I sent off my quilts and other bits today - hope they are there waiting for me when I need them.
I'm off to Murrumburrah - near Cootamundra - this weekend for 2 days at The Quilters Stash. A long way to drive but I'm really looking forward to seeing this part of the country.
I'm sure to have some pics to share.

  1. It's great to see the progress shots of the purple dahlia!! Those Jacobean Stars are amazing. Loved the photo of the Blackheath girls, now I know what to wear the next time I head up the mountain. Thanks for showing my Matilda Quilt, I'm just about to fill out my Springwood Show entry forms.
