Not skiing!

What do you do in Cooma when it's not snowing - you go to a quilting workshop!
And it was me last weekend and a great group of Cooma locals and visitors.
There were three projects going at the one time and here's a sample of the beautiful work these girls do...
...the start of Deb's Dahlia.

Fay was tackling the Supernova quilt and using lots of scrap fabrics
Heidi's centre - check out those roses!

This is Julies' - a colour wheel exercise. Can't wait to see what she does next.

Narelle has pieced this by hand over papers and her work is superb. What a woman!

The other project was Scrappy Windmills - don't seem to have a pic of a finished block.
You know they're having fun when the table's a mess.

 Then it was show and tell from last year's workshop...
Heidi just finished quilting this NYB for Chris. You can't see the quilting but it was beautiful and Heidi's first "custom" job.

Helen's Hatchet - Love the grey fabric and the brights she's used.
 Jenny? used last year's NYB blocks in a different setting. That's a panel in the centre and the border diamonds were appliqued. Fantastic!

Two Noodle Boxes - see we do finish things!

This is an old dahlia centre from the 70's brought for show and tell. Love that border.

And Deb's NYB top. Well done.
Cooma's a lovely town and I had a great time visiting - thanks guys. See you again next year.

Class action

My teaching schedule is back in full swing again and here are some pics from recent classes....

Same class, different version.

Helen's Ferris Wheel. My version is in the current issue of Quilters Companion magazine.

Julie's Jacobean Star. She won 1st prize at the Gunning Show with this!

One block from a Lots of Dots workshop

Jill's Mariners Madness PLUS. It's massive and made for her son who loves it.
The flying geese were a challenge but look fantastic!

Matiah's Chocolate Stars centre - lovely fussy cutting.

Roz's Hatchet...

...and Sandra's version. Love them both.

Trish's NYB quilt. The border is sailing boats - sorry about the rotten pic.
I'll be back next post with some pics from my Cooma workshop last weekend. A great time was had by all!!
In the meantime here are a couple of interesting links...
 the Olympic quilt
