Home schooling

Every week and one Saturday a month I have classes at home. Some of the girls have been coming along for over ten years now - who would have thought! and they are producing some wonderful work.
Sandra's working on this medallion centre.

Janice is making slow progress - but hey it's not a race!

And Sue seems to turn up with a finished project each visit.

This dahlia is even better in person - Pam is so particular with her needlework and fabric choices and it certainly pays off.

Bronwyn has had this centre waiting for a while and all of a sudden it's turned into this....


Marrianne has just picked this up from the quilter - what a great job. Just needs binding now.

I found these at Spotlight recently - all Denys Schmidt except the purple.
We have received 134 entries for the Springwood Quilt Show from 79 quilters.
A bit down on last year but not sure why. Anyway I'm sure it will be a wonderful display with a little more room to stand back and take in all the beautiful quilts. Only 30 days to go and so many behind the scenes jobs to do!


  1. Love Sandra's background and Pam's Dahlia is inspiring. Thanks girls!

  2. Some fabulous work there - you must be proud of your students.

  3. I love Sandra's medallion center. That background fabric just makes it pop. Such wonderful work by all.

  4. The dahlia is awesome! That is not to say they are not all lovely, and the girls have done a great job, just that the dahlia has always been one of my favorite quilt designs. What a shame I am living in the US or I would be asking to join your once a week group. Barbara

  5. Lots of beautiful projects! I love the way you showed Bronwyns center and then the next stage! Amazing!!
