I am definitely looking forward to travelling to Adelaide in less than two weeks time to teach at the Quilters' Guild of South Australia Quilt Encounter 2013! It will be lovely to meet the organisers that I have been chatting to for over twelve months. It will also be great to meet all the ladies in class.
I have been busy photocopying hundreds of pages of patterns and compiling folders for all of my students. I have also had hundreds of photos of the quilts printed and been working on more samples. I put a LOT of preparation into my classes so that they run smoothly on the day!
I have also been asked to present a talk on the Monday evening so I need to get working on my PowerPoint presentation of my Jane Austen quilt collection.
As for sewing, I have been working on a few new designs! Work progresses on "Meryton" which will be the sixth Jane Austen quilt - in pretty pinks and greens. I have also started a new design in brown and blue (brown, just for a change!)
I have also sewn a lot on my trusty Bernina to (nearly) complete a quilt top for next year's NSW Guild Quilt Show.
I do not want to reveal the quilt just yet but I can tell you it is based on an antique quilt made by Henrietta Glover in the mid-nineteenth century in Connecticut, USA.
Here are some of the little half square triangles, all in piles and then in rows ready to be pieced....
Until next time, happy stitching....
