I'm back!

This is the view from my classroom last weekend. I was at Tocal Agricultural College for a weekend with Maitland Quilters 

It was a beautiful setting and the classroom was huge. Good lighting, plenty of tables and a constant supply of morning and afternoon tea!
 The girls started with the centre of the Jacobean Star quilt in all different colourways.

This was their show and tell for Saturday night.

By Sunday things were really starting to happen! Lots of star points with those cursed set-in seams.

Donna was after the look of a marble floor with this batik version.

Ann-Marie's was coming together well.

Pat's was a stunner too.

But this one grabbed my eye. Those star points are there but because they are so pale it has made a new design. Robyn was combining NYB's from another project - just perfect. 

Speaking of NYB's these are some from a recent class that mad an impact.

Remember my Supernova Leftovers quilt? It's on the cover of the latest issue of DUQ with full instructions to make the quilt. 

I've just finished making a BOM quilt for a very well-known Sydney quilt shop. My lips are sealed til all is revealed at Darling Harbour! Can't wait to see it hanging at the shop's stall.
Which reminds me I must still finish quilting my two entries. Yikes only 2 weeks til drop-off day!
Better take them to quilt camp this weekend and put my head down.


  1. Wow! Look at all those amazing quilts in the making!! All are stunning!! I was so honouref to see you mentioned my name in your mag article, I only got my hands on a copy a couple of days ago, I saw it on the Internet but hadn't found it in newsagents, must be selling like hotcakes because of the fabulous cover quilt. Oh I'm busting to see your BOM. I'm not going to the show till Sunday but I'll make a beeline for where it might be hanging.

  2. I love those beauties. I'll be on the lookout for the magazine here in the States!
