Beautiful Class Work at Post Office Patchwork

I have been very busy with lots of teaching, hence no time to blog!  Sorry for my absence.

Here are some highlights of recent class work.

Judy received her magnificent “Wentworth” back from quilter extraordinaire Belinda Betts of Eucalypt Ridge Quilting.  
It is so beautiful, the photos do not do it justice.

At Post Office Patchwork in Glenbrook, ladies were starting new quilts and finishing older works.

Lisa began the centre hexagon medallion on “Meryton”.  Very lovely colours.

While Tania worked on the outer blocks for the same quilt in brights.

Caroline made a striking pillow sham to coordinate with her “Lambton” quilt.

Pauline added flowers to her “Netherfield” borders.  Beautiful!

Caroline is making a variation on the “Netherfield” medallion.

Jeanette has added gorgeous hexagons to her “Longbourne”.  The pattern and kit for this one is on my website.

I have a couple of spots available in my classes at Glenbrook, the first Friday or the fourth Wednesday of the month.
