Class action

Tracey sent me these pics of two versions of my Lots of Dots quilt on show recently in Windsor - interesting to see the blocks on a light background for a change.

And this partial version is to be used as a bedhead - great idea. This time with a pieced background.

This is our Springwood Quilt Show raffle quilt finished and sent to the quilter's. Looks pretty good doesn't it!

Lorraine's Strippy Sampler in a controlled palette ....

...and Sue's is a study in orange!

I recently held a workshop for Orange Schoolhouse Quilters. Day one was an Introduction to the NYB block...
...and day two was a Basic mariners Compass. Great results from all the girls. I'm back again in February for a repeat performance if anyone's interested.

Now for two Snowball Circle tops finished since quilt camp in September. Kathy's above and Gai's below. Beautiful work. Love that sashing Gai's used.

 Once a month I have a class at Blackheath Hab and Fab - a lovely little fabric store in Blackheath. Vivian has been working on the gem for most of the year bit it was certainly worth the wait. Beautiful soft colours and superb sewing! Just need a border and she's done.
 Jenny has a finish too with her Asian Strings top...

...and Janelle's Chocolate Stars is being auditioned for borders. Great fussy-cutting in that centre.
Lots of Summer School classes coming up in January. 
At Quiltsmith on Friday 29th I'll be teaching the Snowball Circle quilt below...

and the same at Hobbysew Kings Park on Monday 18th January with the quilt below, a Pickle Dish variation on Tuesday 19th. Ring both stores if you're interested.
and Hobbysew Kings Park. Check the dates out on the sidebar - I'd love to see you there.
