The class was held in the historic Onehunga Community House, originally the school built in 1901..







I had a quick visit to the gorgeous shop at Patchwork Passion, lots of goodies there.







Looking forward to some time off tomorrow before we head off to retreat.

Great Class at Ashburton, NZ

A big thank you to Rachel Maw for  having me to teach for her lovely shop, Annie’s Country Quilt Store in Ashburton. 

Also, thank you to all the lovely ladies who attended my two day workshop.  I taught paper foundation piecing techniques and machine appliqué skills to make my “Spikes and Specks” quilt design.

Here are some of the completed blocks from today.




















Here is the group photo of the class with everyone holding up their work.  Go girls!


Lots of different colour combinations achieved.





Heading to Auckland tomorrow for more teaching fun.

Busy Day Teaching for Annie’s at Ashburton

I had 23 ladies in class today, all learning my paper foundation piecing techniques and starting to make my “Spikes and Specks” quilt design.

It was a fun day filled with chatter, laughter, learning and sewing.

Here are some of the blocks in various stages of production.


























The classroom was a great venue with plenty of space and good lighting.


Teaching in progress.


Thanks for a great day Rachel and ladies.  More to come tomorrow.
