Second Saturday Class at The Stitchers Cupboard

I am a lucky tutor to be able to call so many of my students as also my friends.

What a lovely day yesterday teaching and sharing with a great group of ladies.  Such beautiful work to share.

Here is a stunning completed “Hunsford” by Narelle in purples and black.  
Beautiful custom quilting by Sandra Kelly from Art n Quilting.

Mooneen was working on a gorgeous “Lydia” table runner with beautiful fussy cut flowers and a deep pink background.

Sue was working on these gorgeous Dresden flowers for “Highbury”.

Ivana had her “Rose Rhapsody” quilt with her.  The centre block was beautifully quilted by Katie Law of Nutmeg Quilting and the rest was quilted by Katy with an Edge to Edge Pattern.

Christine has almost completed her magnificent “Pemberley”.  Just the final border to go on now.

Lyn treated us to a delicious Christmas high tea in class.  My favourite is always in egg nog cheesecake.  Thanks so much Lyn.

Beautiful Stitching

I have had a few more very busy classes this week with beautiful work to show.

At Hobbysew Kings Park, Dru has completed several blocks for her striking colourful version of  “The Way Ahead”. 

Vicki has almost completed the front cover for her Block Keeper.  She has hand pieced everything.

Jacque has almost completed her stunning “Victoria” quilt with three dimensional flowers and delicate beading.  Wonderful work.


Here is her delicate appliqué cornerstone block.

At Post Office Patchwork, Glenbrook, Caroline has completed a stunning blue, orange and red version of “Lambton”.
She has pin basted and will quilt it herself.

Pauline was working on her gorgeous “Netherfield”, using plenty of pieces from her amazing fabric collection.
Here is a very pretty little corner.

Rhonda has been working hard on the hand appliqué flowers for her beautiful “Henrietta” quilt.

Janette is working on a lovely centre for “Longbourne”.  Love her urn.

Coralie has progressed so much on her stunning centre for “Lambton”.  Love it.

I have one spot available in class at Post Office Patchwork, Glenbrook, if you would like to join me next year.  It is held the first Friday of every month from 1st February, 2019.  Please phone Judy on 47399555.

This Week in the Classroom

We are starting to wrap up classes for the year with lots of Christmas party treats and sewing instructions for the holiday period.

Here is some lovely work by Pauline on her pink and green “Highbury” in class at Post Office Patchwork, Glenbrook.

Margaret has been making lots of progress on the hexagon/square borders for “Longbourne” in soft colours.  Lovely work.

Here are the cornerstones.

Lisa has also been working on this border.  Here is a collection of her baby 3/8” baby hexagons.

Here are Lisa’s cornerstone blocks.

Tania is making a fantastic bright version of “Meryton”.  Wow!

Both Meredith and Anne are making “Jelly Friends” from a fabric range called “Morris Holiday”. 
Here are some of their blocks so far.


This is Anne’s corner block for “Hartfield”.  So pretty.

How is this for “fussy cutting”?  Sharon is using this fabric called “Emma” by Kathy Hall for her “Lambton” scallops.
This looks amazing.

At The Stitchers Cupboard, Julie has made this stunning little cornerstone square for “Hartfield”.

Julie has also taken out her “Netherfield” Centre to assess where she is up to.  It is lovely.

April has completed a beautiful “Cordelia” cushion. (Sorry the photo is not good)

I have been working with a beautiful jelly roll called “Hickory Road” by Jo Morton.  Love these repro fabrics.

These are some of the blocks I have made so far.
