This is the plan ....

and this is the start!
I made a blue when cutting the border squares but I'm sure it will all work in the end.
It's a reproduction of a quilt made in the 1850's.

You might have seen a previous post with this quilt half done - now it's all done and looks pretty groovy doesn't it. I'm really happy with the result - all planned in EQ.
In April this year I'll be doing two days of classes at Hobbysew in Belconnen, a Canberra suburb. They have been promoting the classes already here. A nice wrap for me I thought - thanks Hobbysew.
If you are a member of the NSW Quilters Guild you will have received the latest issue of The Template. Check out the article on our Springwood Quilt Show - a very nice write up submitted by Vicki our publicity officer which gives you all the details for a fabulous three days 29 April to 1 May.
On the subject of the show entry forms are available now from the show blog. Just click on the sidebar and print them off. If you are a quilter from the Blue Mountains area we'd love to have you display your work.
Entries close 31st March.

  3. Wow! A beautiful start to your project. I have seen a pattern for something very similar and have often thought it would be hard to make but oh so wonderful.
