Snake Gully

I visited Snake Gully Quilters in Muswellbrook again last week for a weekend workshop.
Two projects were happening - the Hatchet quilt...

We had a lot of fun in a great venue - sheep all around and great hospitality. Thanks again for having me Liz!
Show and tell's always good with this Jacobean Star of Roz' from the last workshop ready to be quilted.

Matiah is the youngest member of the group - year 6 at school - but that hasn't stopped her sewing progress. Using Nan's Bernina she's in the group's yearly challenge ...

and loves foundation piecing! She's a member of the NSW Quilters Guild and we might even see something from her in next year's show. Keep up the great work Matiah - we need lots more young sewers just like you.

For all of us who can't get to the Quilt Study Centre in Nebraska here's a link to their on-line exhibitions - well worth a look with lots of amazing quilts.
And don't forget Epping Quilt Show is on this weekend
Epping Quilters 30th Anniversary Show, Don Moore Community Centre, North Rocks Road, Carlingford NSW. Hours: Fri 11am-7pm, Sat 9am-5pm.


  1. Beautiful blocks. I love seeing young quilters. Think of the years ahead for them.

  2. I have to agree I just love it when I see young quilters in the making. I hope that she keeps up the good work. The 2 pieces that are on show here are fantastic. Well done Matiah.

  3. Those Snake Gully Quilters sure know how to sew beautiful things!! 3 cheers for Matiah, her work is already really impressive!

  4. So great to see such talented young quilters. Let's hope they carry on into the future with more and more brilliant work. xCathy

  5. The Hatchet blocks look very interesting. Would love to seem them in a full quilt.

  6. Wow! The hatchet block is pretty amazing! How fun to have such a young, eager and talented student.
