Wonderful "Meryton" Centres at The Stitchers Cupboard

Here are three more beautiful "Meryton" centres being worked on at The Stitchers Cupboard in Camden.

First is Shirley's stunning centre in soft pinks, browns and greens.  It is gorgeous, Shirley.

I also love Melanie's hexagon centre made from the Penny Rose range "Aesops Fable".  Wow, it looks so stunning.

This is Kathy's beautiful and bright centre - love her fussy cutting of some funky prints.

Lots of Work by The Richmond Stitchers

My Richmond Stitchers group are always prolific, trying all sorts of techniques and projects.

Here is a sample from last Sunday:

Mary 1 turned her confetti cottage garden into a beautiful cushion:

Karol is making a series of confetti trees - one for each season:  gorgeous!

Judy had a huge show and tell with three completed quilts: Black Magic, Marrakesh and my Civil War BOM.  Fabulous.

Di was thrilled with how her Christmas whack and stack turned out - me too.

Kim has finished two major bed sized quilts of my Whack and Stack star design for gifts.  Spectacular!

So proud of you girls.

More "Meryton"

This is Robin's "Meryton" centre with first blue border attached.  How lovely.

Girls were working on their pieced blocks for "Meryton" in class at The Stitchers Cupboard today. Some ladies had never done machine piecing before - well done!  

Robyn's Wonderful "Hunsford"

It was a delight to see Robyn's "Hunsford" complete and beautifully quilted by Birgit Hoffman.  Wow.  Congratulations Robyn.

Lynne's Stunning "Blue Lotus" Quilt But in Red!

Lynne brought her gorgeous version of my "Blue Lotus" quilt in for show and tell.

She used her stash of "Paris Flea Market" fabric for the applique and lots of vibrant reds for the piecing.  Wow, what a beautiful combination!  Now off to the quilter.

Staying in the same colour scheme, this is Jan's latest block for the outside border of her "Meryton" quilt.  Fabulous!

Class List at Hobbysew Kings Park

I will now be teaching three separate classes at Hobbysew Kings Park each month.  This is a great shop with lots of yummy fabric, notions, machines and everything crafty.  The staff are all really friendly and helpful.

The first Wednesday of each month from July 2015:  
10am to 4pm.  This is a new class.
I offer my students their choice of some of my major quilt projects (excluding the Jane Austen Quilt Collection) including lots of machine pieced and foundation pieced and machine appliqued quilts, cushions, bags and table runners.

"Spikes and Specks"

"Ashbourne Mill"

"Bloomin' Logs"

The first Thursday of each month: continuing class from 10am to 4pm: "Jane Austen Quilt Collection" - most students in this class have commenced by making "Pemberley" but you may wish to choose one of the other five Jane Austen quilts.  All of these quilts are named after places featured in Jane Austen's novel "Pride and Prejudice" and are inspired by the style of antique English quilts.  They involve lots of hand applique and English paper piecing.



The second Wednesday of each month: continuing class from 1.30pm to 4.30pm.
This shorter three hour class is designed for students to continue to work on my major projects commenced in other classes and to begin some of my simpler projects: jelly roll quilts, samplers, cushions, bags and table runners.  Every student is working on a different project.

Please phone the lovely ladies at Hobbysew Kings Park on 9621 4000 to discuss these class options or send me an email.
