The Quilting Room Workshops

I had the pleasure of teaching some lovely ladies from South Australia their choice of three of my pieced and machine appliquéd quilts: "Spikes and Specks", "Bloomin Logs" or "The Way Ahead".

Helen Campbell of The Quilting Room organises a great venue with delicious home made meals so that everyone can have the best time.  Some of the ladies being industrious here.

Two ladies chose "The Way Ahead" which has foundation pieced compass blocks.  They both achieved a complete block.

Here is Jenni's compass next to my quilt and then her finished block.

Here is Jackie's finished block.  They both look fabulous!

Here is my "Spikes and Specks" on the demonstration table.

This is Sandra's first block under construction.

We spent some time auditioning different choices for Danielle's block.

This was our selected choice, black and grey with a touch of purple.

My "Blooming Logs" quilt contains lots of courthouse steps blocks with the appliqué stitched over the seams.

The girls spent time perfecting their quarter inch seams.  It does take practice and you must slow down!

Here is Marg holding up her first set of four lovely blocks.

Here are Jan's blocks.

Although it was very cold and windy, Spring flowers were out in Helen's garden.  Thank you Helen and ladies for a great weekend.
