Sarah Fielke is returning to Toowoomba for a two-day class on Saturday 8 & Sunday 9 December. Sarah joined us earlier in the year for a fantastic weekend of creative stitching. The ladies were filled with praise about the way she ran her class. Even though the class was large, Sarah made sure that each participant was given time to discuss their project and receive that precious tidbit of information that would make their quilting journey more enjoyable and stress free.
Sarah will be attending the International Quilt Market in Houston so I am sure she will be returning with her creative juices pumping. It will be lovely to hear her take on Quilt Market and listen to the events and designers that have left the biggest impression with her.
Kyleigh was unable to attend Sarah’s class with us in April but that didn’t stop her from making this gorgeous version of Fanciful Flowers from Material Obsession Book – Contemporary Quilt Designs. Sarah and Kathy designed the original quilt.
I have been busy as a bee, sewing new samples for the shop – yes I know – I have an ulterior motive – yes to make you visit the shop and fall in love with one of our quilts (maybe 2 or 3 -we have lots of lovely). With such gorgeous fabrics and great designs it is hard to resist.
Quilt: City Blocks
Designed by: Lyn Wilson
Fabric Range: Sew Mama Said
Size: 72 ½” square
Perfect for anyone who loves a modern, crisp look. Kits are available at the shop; please call if we are able to help you with any further information. We have made up gorgeous bundles in the colourways of red, black or grey as well as this delicious bundle of fat quarters which includes each piece we ordered from the range.
I am now off to work on the next project – another quilt, this time using jellyrolls from Sandy Klop of American Jane. Her new range ABC 123 has fresh prints with that renowned vintage feel that transport us back to our old school days. I am very happy with the first block so am excited to get back and see how it will finish up. Will keep you updated.
Mark Twain once said, “good friends, good books, and a sleepy conscience: is the ideal life”…..he must not have known any quilters……..happy stitching……lisa
