Whilst we were cutting the kits for Super Scrappy the pattern arrived for The Honey Blouse arrived and of course with feel of the voile still lingering in my fingers the next project was decided upon. Thankfully in the sewing room that day was my gorgeous friend Kyleigh – she is a fabulous quilter and seamstress, so before I could blink the pattern was out, a template made and the blouse was finished in a blink. Well nearly. So here is Izabella, who we convinced to model our fabulous blouse – I have worn it so I can tell you that it feels gorgeous on your skin and oh so comfortable. I am now in search of fabric for my next blouse.
Karen dropped off her Pinwheel quilt for quilting this week – a group of friends took off to the Bunya’s for a weekend girls escape. Off they went armed with champagne, fine food and their sewing. Pinwheels is such a happy quilt to make.
Kay was back at sewing this week after her lovely holiday with family and friends.
Kay was back at sewing this week after her lovely holiday with family and friends. If you have read the previous posts about Wendy Williams’ classes you would have seen Katrina proudly showing off her King Kong/New York cushion that she made in class. It was a gift for Kay so on Saturday at Auntie Green Katrina introduced Kay to King Kong – with much delight.
We all gathered this weekend for the next stage of Auntie Green. We welcomed some new friends along on the journey and had the pleasure of catching up with our old friends and seeing how they were progressing. If you are still falling in love with this quilt we have room in the class – but don’t leave it too long. Here are some images of the beautiful quilts from the weekend class –
Val comes in from Dalby for class and her quilt is absolutely gorgeous - and she is up to date. Grrrrr
The gorgeous little peepers popping out from behind the quilt belong to Cathy. This is her first ever needleturn quilt and she has fallen in love with this technique and we are so thrilled that she is enjoying the peacefulness of hand applique.
Finally here is my quilt – it has progressed, even if it is only a little - I finally have the outer leaves on my oval. Yah!!!!
There are plenty more fantastic quilts from the class to share with you from the weekend. I will try and post the rest tomorrow or the next day depending on the shop.
The greatest joy of sewing is being able to close our mind and eyes to the world outside and the reality that swamps us and our creativity.
