Whack and Stack Fun at Nowra

A group of my students had lots of fun today cutting, stacking and sewing fan blocks for their new whack and stack quilts at Jukejema Quilting Barn.  You never quite know what amazing patterns will be created when you cut out random wedges from a big print fabric and sew them together again.

Here are some of the results by Carol, Louise, Christie, Karen and Sue.  So cool.

Show and Tell at Jukejema Quilting Barn

This is Louise's magnificent "Longbourne" just back from the quilter.

It is just so beautiful.  Love the tiny 1/4 inch border of gold to break up the two purple borders.

Then we saw Karen's amazing "Meryton" centre in soft peach, blue, tan and red.

Gorgeous work girls.

Jane Austen Quilt Day at Hobbysew Kings Park

Here are some photos of the gorgeous work my ladies are doing in class at Hobbysew.

This is Kerrie's fabulous "Pemberley" centre. Love it.

And some of her blocks for the outside border:

Here are some of Michelle's  beautiful "Pemberley" blocks in shades of blue, green, red and brown with a pretty William Morris print for the centre circle.

Margaret was busy working on her lovely "Longbourne".  Lots of tiny hexagon flowers and clamshells.  Beautiful.

A great days work, ladies.

Full Day Wednesday at Hobbysew Kings Park

I had a lovely class today for the first Wednesday of the month full day workshop at Kings Park Hobbysew.

Here is some of the work in progress:

First, this is Heather's gorgeous "Pemberley" centre coming together.

Christine is working on a fun dinosaur quilt adapting one of my designs to batiks, rocks and creatures!

Shayne is working on my "Jane" cushion design in reds and browns.

Lesley is putting her Marrakesh fan blocks together in the serpentine design layout.  She used a beautiful Japanese floral on a black background with lovely birds and flowers.  It is going to be an awesome quilt.

Thanks ladies for a really enjoyable class.

Nowra Girls Excel at Jukejema Quilting Barn

My students at Jukejema are doing some gorgeous work on their "Meryton" quilts.

This is Di's gorgeous version in blue and brown - one of my favourite colour combos.  Love it.

This is Donna's wonderful version - just stunning.  We decided on a rich pink for the sashings.

These are Sandra's corner bouquets in soft and pretty fabrics.

Why didn't I take photos of the other girls' work and the Rosings centres?  Must have been laughing too much!  Sorry girls.
