Lynne was back at the shop over the weekend to take a trapunto quilting class with Bev McClune. As promised she brought her Circles of Fun quilt that she started with Sue Ross at last year’s Quilting on the Downs. Everyone who has made this quilt absolutely loves it but Lynne takes the cake – she loved it so much she made two. Just in case you missed the post – Lynne took her two tops and quilted them back-to-back. So here is her gorgeous Circles of Fun.
Lynne has hardly been home in the last few weeks but between Quilting on the Downs and travelling down again for Bev’s quilting class she still managed to finish her Cathedral Windows quilt top. Lynne is the queen of time management – where do I sign up for a class?
Sorry about the angle of the photo. Who would have ever known that when you opened a quilt shop that you would also have to become a journalist, photographer, it consultant and event planner. All in a days work. There was definitely no work happening yesterday as I spent the day with Majella and my girls in Brisbane looking at delightful home ware and antique shops. A nice way to spend a day off.
The sewing room was filled with laughter as the girls moved in for a day of sewing and sharing. Katrina is almost finished her lone star quilt that she started with Sue Ross earlier in the year. Katrina had intended to just make the lone star but once she had finished we decided (because we love her) that she should applique the cornerstones with flowers. Once we had her stitching and on her way we then tried (very hard) to convenience her that she needed to add an applique border. We weren’t successful. Luckily, Katrina had purchased a yummy Jennifer Paganelli print that was absolutely perfect as a border for her quilt. She won’t let me photograph it until it is finished – so keep your eyes peeled to the blog for Katrina’s finished quilt top.
Kay brought her Auntie Green in today to show us her progress – I am sure that you will agree that it is breathtakingly beautiful. Stick ability.
I love Wisteria – the look, the smell and especially the way the ground is gets covered in a mist of delicate lilac petals. My neighbour has an arbour, which every Spring is covered in the most glorious showing of wisteria and for several seasons now I have been a little envious. So imagine my delight when we discovered this little treasure at the shop…….
Keep watching the blog as we will have some more date claimers to announce in the next few days.
Catch you then...........lisa
