The Quilt Show
Marcelle and I have had the pleasure of attending the quilt show in Sydney this weekend. There were so many inspiring quilts and clever (and time-consuming!) designs. There was no end to the eye-candy! Below are some of my favourites:
Butterfly by Lisa Peterson
Blue Baskets by Lois Cook
City Sampler by Jane Frankham
Empire Place by Susan Miller
Geese in the Garden by Ann Murray
Reflections in Blue by Robyn Cuthbertson
Intersectionality by Jennifer Davis
Liberty Belle by Judith Thomson
Always One Galah by Debbie Guihot
Marcelle entered two quilts:
Birdsong by Marcelle Armstrong
Mon Ami Splendid Sampler by Marcelle Armstrong
And our very own Pat also entered! Congratulations to Pat for being selected as an exhibitor!
Splendid Sampler – Pat’s Version by Pat Johnson
Don’t think we’ve forgotten!
We promised to host a class on how to make this Positively Perfect Nap Time quilt!
Well the details are all here! It will run 9am-4pm on Saturday, 29th July 2017.

The most important thing to know, though, is that the class costs $125 for the day (including your jelly rolls of fabric and morning & afternoon tea), and if you pay before the day, we will pre-cut your fabric for you! Yup! You heard right! You can just rock-up, sit down, and sew!
Please note: There was an error in the original poster for this class. It has been updated since 6pm, 27/06/17. If you have an earlier copy, please download the new one.
But wait! There’s more!

For all classes:
– BYO sewing machine: There are a few spare sewing machines for those without, but it’s first in – best dressed. It’s good if you know the basics of how to use your machine (i.e. how to thread it, refill a bobbin, and sew a straight line). If you need help learning to use your machine, please talk to us beforehand so we can be sure you’re ready to go on the day.
– BYO basic notions (i.e. thread, scissors, pins, etc.). If you’re short on any notions, we can help kit you out!
We really hope you can join us in the coming weeks! We’re excited!
