Wonderful Three Day Retreat for The Quilting Room

The three day retreat in Adelaide organised by Helen Campbell of The Quilting Room has sadly come to an end for another year.

It was my pleasure to teach a lovely group of 17 ladies all of my techniques for English paper piecing and hand appliqué.

Ladies had the choice of making either “Pemberley” or “Hartfield”.

Here are some of the beautiful centres achieved for Pemberley over the course of the weekend.

This one is by a very enthusiastic Leanne.






The “Hartfield” ladies also achieved lots including work on the centre block and the zig zag borders.

Danielle is making a Christmas version.

Sandra’s Centre is in blues and pinks.

Andrea obviously likes pink.  We dubbed this version “hello kitty” after the cats in the scallop border.

Hey, that is good, she has added green and blue.

And room for a mouse.

Thank you to Helen for all your hard work (and divine food).

See you next year ladies.

  2. These look lovely. I have been making `Pemberley`as BOM from Grandmothers Garden. Slow but interesting progress since starting.Seeing these ladies lovely work makes me want to pick it up again. :) I would also like to make your quilt `Hartfield` but don`t see this in your shop with templates. Happy Stitching.
