A few class pics to start....
Jill being silly with her Mariners centre

Rosemary has made this up on the go at Cottage Quiltworks and it's a wedding present for a very lucky couple.

The photo doesn't do the quilt justice. It's from a William Morris range and looks stunning in the flesh.
At Material Obsession on Friday we were having some New York Beauty fun
and Alison was finishing her Mariners compass block

when in walked Megan who is the "proof reader" for my Square Dance Block of the month at the shop.
She's working her way thru each month and came in to show me. Aren't they great!
The Ice cream Cone block with a stunning fabric combo and giant ric rac.

Recently I was at Friday Showcase at the NSW Quilters Guild to see the amazing work of Lois Cook.
What a delight this girl is with a funny story for every quilt. Here is her beautiful Baltimore - all hand pieced and hand quilted.

Can't think of the name of this but it was gorgeous. Again all handwork.
Lois has made my Mariners Madness quilt by machine and it nearly killed her. I wouldn't be surprised if she hand quilts it.
Now for the news. I am off tomorrow for two days of recording a DVD for Quilters Companion magazine. To say I am nervous is an understatement!
Kathy Doughty who's done three of them tells me "it's a breeze".
Hope she's right and wish me luck!
