Class quilts

Not bad for a foundation-piecing newbie is it!
Moyra's done a beautiful job.

Mr Pelican looks right at home here in Kay's version of my Emperor's Wheel. Love those marching crabs too.

Lorraine's finally finished her Lots of Dots and it's on the way to the quilter. Looks great!

This is also Lorraine's - a Xmas runner using the Supernova block from quilt camp and a really cute Santa with tree.

Pam's made this for her granddaughter - lucky girl. Pity you can't see the quilting - it was beautiful.

Another from Pam - love those leaves and yes, less is more.

We have finally finished the raffle quilt for our Springwood Quilt Show for 2012. Go on over and have a look - blue and white always looks great and Susie will do a wonderful job on the quilting.

These two quilts share the same border fabric and the same blocks with a slightly different layout.
How different they look with the individual owner's fabric choices. Both stunning.
These foundations are a lot fun to do and allow for lots of colour combos - really only limited by your imagination.

Show and tell at Figtree yesterday.
Such a different approach and such bold fabrics. Quilting was pretty good too.
The day was a riot - someone said because it's a full moon. Things just went awry all day.
Lucky we can laugh!

This was a fantastic group class with the Birdhouse Quilters.
2 days of frantic sewing produced a couple of finishes and lots of WIP's.
Great venue at Narelle's beautiful house and we were fed and watered constantly.
Thanks Maggie for accommodating me and say hi to Tiger!

My stepson sent me this from a store in Santa Monica - he thinks it was a clothing store.
Too cool!

These two pics are from Lynne who was in my class at Toowoomba. Here's what she wrote:

"Have finally finished quilting my Mariners Compass, in the border I used the William Morris fabric
designed by Michelle Hill.
Now it's back to Lots of Dots & pickled Lillies, but still have my Deauville to quilt. Nothing like a few more challenges! I love foundation piecing, it takes all the hassle out of piecing."

She's a girl after my own heart. Well done Lynne and keep on piecing.

Various classes

Lorraine's machine-pieced hexagons

Lorraine again - a Sue Ross class in Toowoomba.
(I really love this quilt).

Pam's camp project  nearly finished - what a woman!

Sue's Lots of Dots - yummo.

Vicki's Mariners Compass from Summer School at Hobbysew - now a lovely cushion

Now this one!! A big blooper turned out beautifully. Well done Sandra.
How's this for graphic - Roxanne's done a great job and used lots of scraps in the process.

Pat's oh-so-gentle Mariners!

Love this use of memorabilia. Roxanne's dad's shirts and jeans and some family pics as well. It was so soft to touch.

I never tire of these NYB's. Val's all ready to be quilted.
I'm off to Bomaderry for two days teaching - see you soon.
