Sue Ross joined us this weekend for the next installment of Auntie Green. It was a thrill to see how committed all the girls were with their quilts and how far they had all progressed to be ready for this next stage. Sue’s quilt looks absolutely gorgeous and all the ladies were excited and maybe a little daunted by the cable. When I look at the quilt in Annette’s book I still feel a little overwhelmed by the enormity of the project that we have all embarked on. But Sue has us all gently and calmly working on this masterpiece and in all honesty not one of us regrets taking the first step on this journey. The ladies all look forward to the day that this quilt lays proudly on their bed. I truly believe the clarity and confidence they have will keep them inspired and sewing on the road to completion. I am so proud to be the shop owner of Precious Time and provide a space where these heirlooms of the future are growing with love.
So here is the next stage of Auntie Green…….
Bronwyn & Izabella were determined to get their cable glued and pinned down before they left for the day……
Bev who is a beautiful machine quilter took a different approach to Auntie Green today and decided to applique her basket and vine down by hand………she loves, loves, loves the machine so today was a challenge and the ladies awarded her the gold star for taking the plunge into needleturn applique. Well done Bev……..
I am sure you would agree that we became the queens of bias this weekend. So if you would like to join us on this journey and make your own version of Auntie Green our next class will be in January after we return from Christmas break - as you can see we have a little bit of stitching to keep us busy. So there is plenty of time to catch up to the ladies.
There are more Auntie Green quilts to share with you in the next post.
Happiness is not so much in having as sharing. We make a living by what we get, but we make a life by what we give. Norman MacEwan.
