BIG post

It's been a really busy last few days for me.
Friday was my class at Material Obsession with lots of work done  on the day.
This is Megan's first block from the Square Dance BOM being run thru the shop.
Looks great! Megan's the quality controller for my patterns - one down 9 to go! 

The class was a Basic Mariners Compass and this is the work in progress.
Great colour combos.

Ann started on some string piecing and went from this....
.... to this in no time at all.

The compasses came together quickly too.

Don't you love that background.
 Then it was a quick dash out to Mulgoa and our Quilt Camp for the weekend.
I was teaching two projects - on the wall behind Kelly and it was a fun weekend.

Nearly 30 of us sewing our little hearts out til all hours.
A selection of Deco Lamp blocks done over the two days

This was part of our beautiful venue - built in the early 1800's.
Much excitement when the fire alarm was activated. Not one but THREE fire engines turned up for a false alarm. We even had a wedding in the grounds Saturday afternoon - sorry no pics but the bride was beautiful.

AND a celebrity teaching a quilt group in an adjacent building. Pam with Katrina Hadjimichael, the prize-winning Sydney quilter. We gate-crashed her classroom to check out the students work - terrific stuff happening there. The girls joined us for show and tell on Saturday night.
 Even the bananas were having fun!

More quilty pics tomorrow
