Final Summer School classes at Hobbysew for me this week with lots of magnificent sewing on display.
Here are some pics of a magnificent "Pemberley" being made by Jennie.
I am now selling the pattern and template kit for this quilt directly to customers. You can email me for details on Kat.firstname.lastname@example.org.
My other lovely Jennie was working on "Pemberlini", my smaller design based on the motherquilt "Pemberley". This pattern is for sale on my Craftsy store.
Here are the "Charlotte" twins by Narelle and Jennie.
Janelle continued working on her bright batik version.
Meredith continued to make progress on the hexagons for her lovely version of "Wentworth".
Thank you to those who came to Summer School at Hobbysew. Happy stitching and see you soon at my regular classes reconvening in February.

Ladies at Kings Park are already finishing their "Charlotte" quilts from Summer School.
Anna completed her extra large version in pinks and purples in class today. We added a bright yellow small border to make it pop and a wider purple border.
Narelle completed all her blocks in "Preservation" and joined them together today, just borders to go.
Janelle began her version in bright batiks from her stash. Wow!
Meredith continued work on her lovely "Wentworth" in autumnal colours. Love it!
More to come later in the week. Happy stitching everyone!
Here are two gorgeous show and tell "Lambton" quilts from class yesterday, both totally different and now finished. Photos do not do them justice, but I will try.
The first one is by Michelle in gorgeous rich colours. Just so beautiful.
The second one is by Maria. Her version is in very beautiful shades of pink and blue.
Kelly and Michelle began a version of "Charlotte" in bright pretty fabrics.
Their quilts are going to be gorgeous.
Natalie continued to work on her "Charlotte" in Michelle Yeo's "Torrington" fabric range.
If you would like to make your own version of "Charlotte", it would look gorgeous in Jo Morton's range called "Gratitude". (Phone 02 46558348 for a mail order kit).

I have been working on the release of my "Pemberley" pattern and kit for some time.
I am now delighted to announce that everything is ready to go.
The pattern includes eleven A4 sheets of typed instructions and twelve A3 pattern sheets.
The English Paper Piecing kit includes eight individually wrapped packets of different shaped paper templates, including some unique to my quilt. These have been meticulously prepared for me by Imprezzio.
The kit also includes a set of seven Perspex iSpy templates made especially for "Pemberley" to my specifications. These make fussy cutting so simple and fun.
I have refined and reworked the pattern so that you can make this quilt easily on your own at home. I am also just an email away!
"Pemberley" has long been my favourite quilt and it has led me on many wonderful adventures.
I hope you will also enjoy a "Pemberley" journey.
The cost of the pattern only is $50 AUD and the pattern with paper/Perspex template kit is $150 AUD plus postage. Postage within Australia for the full kit is via Australia Parcel Post and is currently $13.40.
Please email me on Kat.email@example.com and I will forward you an invoice via PayPal which can be paid by credit card. Alternatively you can post me a cheque or arrange direct deposit.
