Various Quilts Being Made at Hobbysew, Kings Park

The lovely ladies in my new class at Kings Park Hobbysew have been enjoying work on their new quilts.

Here are some photos from today's class.

This is Jill's most spectacular version of my "Mansfield Park" quilt.  Jill carefully chose all the fabrics from Japanese fabrics in the most amazing colours.  The result is spectacular! Wow, I love it.  Very clever lady!

Here is a close up of the centre appliqué with a small Dresden plate and appliqué flowers.  Notice the fussy cut centre circle with a crane on the red fabric. Also, the green really pops!

See how different it looks to my original in soft brown and pink repro...

Bev is making her second version of my "Jelly Mosaic" quilt in spots, spots, spots!  Here are a couple of blocks she has made so far.  Bazinga!

This is the first block Michelle has completed for her "Ashbourne Mill" quilt in wonderful blue and brown:

We needed to decide which fabric to cut for the octagon that is appliquéd over the gap in the centre.

It is a helpful exercise to photograph the various options to help you decide.  Which one do you like?

The soft brown floral (which incidentally matches her border very well)?

The more modern large flower?

Or the geometric design seen below?

I know which one we liked.....

There are a couple of spots available in class.  If you would like to join us, please phone Hobbysew on 96214000.  The class is held the second Wednesday afternoon of every month from 1.30pm to 4.30pm.
