This is the newest quilt from Australian designer Chris Jurd. It is an absolutely
stunning quilt and how lucky am I that I get to look at it every day, well that is
until it goes home. I could tell Chris that it is very happy here and the anxiety
it would feel being displaced from Precious Time.....maybe that is me and not the quilt.
Anyway Chris is here on Monday 4 & Tuesday 5 April teaching this wonderful
foundation pieced quilt. Sue Ross is so in love with this quilt that she has
extended her stay to take the class with Chris. There are still a few places available
and even though Chris has a gentle sewing soul she will get you moving along teaching
you a fantastic arrayof tips and techniques you can carry forward in your quilting life.
Be quick otherwise Majella and I will be forced to start another new quilt.....I can hear the giggles!
A gold star has to be awarded to our lovely Kyleigh for being the first to finish her Cool Diamond quilt from Kaffe's class. Not only has it been finished but Majella has even quilted it. Here is the proof -
Here is a close up of the quilt so you can see more of the wonderful fabrics that Kyleigh chose and you can also see the lovely quilting. By the way the quilt is folded in half on the wall so that we could take the photo. Big, beautiful quilt. Well done Kyleigh.
So much has been happening at the shop of late and we are finally able to catch our breath and renovate. Yes you read right. Not sure on the grammar but anyway. The classroom was getting a little cramped and we were in need of some more room. Who else could do the job except Sean. He loves demolition. So as you can see the wall between the classroom and kitchen is gone and the extra space it has now created is absolutely wonderful. Next time you are in the shop pop your head into the classroom and be amazed at the difference. We love it ......thank you Sean.
Just rember ladies - sewing forever - housework whenever. See you soon Lisa
