A whole day of play!

I was a student last Friday at Victoria Findlay Wolfe's class in Sydney and what fun it was!
Here she is in front of one of the many quilts she brought with her on the long trip to Oz.
Bad pics from my phone - sorry.
We MADE fabric all morning then got to cut and slash and make shapes from our new yardage. What a liberating exercise with lovely fellow class-mates all enjoying the journey.

I have no names for most of these but Sarah scored this background block from the scrap pile and it just spoke to her as a pear tree. Beautiful.

I sat with Michelle and was blown away by her thousand pyramids of made fabric with the text print as a highlight. What a fun gal! all the way from Canberra.

You can see the template at the bottom ready to cut shapes from the new fabric.

One brave felloow was in the class and he was using shirts to great effect with the added Kaffe highlights.

Grace from MOB was making this for her grandaughter. Wonky log cabins with resident owls - too good!

This was so much better in real life.

And this was my effort for the day - who would have thought to cut and slash hexagons!

Victoria and Kathy at the end of the day. Thanks so much MOB for letting us have a whole day of play - not just 15 minutes. I'm sure Kathy will have lots of pics on her blog too.


  1. Oh Chris you have captured the day perfectly! Thank you for being my new best friend and for keeping me smiling all day long. Wasn't it FUN!?!?

  2. Oh you lucky girl Chris - getting to this workshop! I saw the post on Kathy's blog and thought it looked wonderful fun. A new approach to hexagons indeed ;)

  3. It looks as if you had a great Day wish I had been able to be there. I wonder what inspiration will come forth from the workshop. Hmmmm.. I guess we will have to wait and see

  4. Oh I'm soo behind on blog reading. Great photos of what looks like a fabulous day!! I love those pears!! I saw photos of you on the Material Obsession blog. I love your yellow top.
