Have you always wanted to learn to do patchwork? Or a learn new technique? Or just feel better about making a quilt while a tutor is present?
Come along to our Anything Goes twice a month on a Thursday evening from 6pm - 9pm.
In an Anything Goes class you bring along the project you want to work on and we'll help you with it. It can be a once off or a regular class for you - there is no obligation to attend a minimum number of classes.
Beginners are welcome!
This class will run twice monthly mostly on the 1st and 3rd week of the month.
Introducing our new Block of the Month, Forget-Me-Not Garden. Most of the quilt is made with Tilda fabric and the embroidery is done using the lovely Cottage Garden Threads.
This BOM runs for 10 months and will be starting on 1 August 2015. We don't currently have a price as we have yet to cut the kits but are taking Expressions of Interest. We only have 11 sets of this gorgeous quilt so please get in fast if you are interested.
A very special thanks to Sue Betts who has made the quilt for us to display in the shop. We cannot tell you how much we appreciate it, Sue.
The quilt is in the shop overnight but will be disappearing off to Rose of Pandora's Quilting to be quilted. We'll let you know when it's back in the shop again for you all to see.
Have you seen all the beautiful Millefiori quilts out there on the Internet recently? Just gorgeous! And, as they are all English Paper Pieced, our Sharon could not resist having a go!
So Sharon sat down and designed this beautiful Millefiori quilt using one of Sue Daley's Pattern Packs. The Millefiori centre is surrounded by baby Millefiori 'stars' in each corner of the centre of the quilt and again in the final border.
If you would like to learn how to do this amazing technique then join Sharon in class on:
Dates: Wed, 8 July 6pm - 9pm OR Thurs, 9 July 10am - 1pm
Cost: $15.00 excluding Pattern Pack and fabric but including bottomless cuppa/cake and tuition.
There will be a limited number of kits available to make Sharon's Millefiori Quilt.
Following our Westalee Ruler Foot Demo yesterday, I promised to post the link to Leonie West's YouTube clips on quilting Feathers and Wreaths with the Westalee Ruler Foot and templates. And here they are:
As we mentioned in a previous post, our Juniors will be making cushions with the cutest appliqué shapes on them this time. I'm totally smitten with the appliques that Sharon has found! They are gorgeous.
There is a bird, an elephant, a hippopotamus or a monkey to choose from.
Date: Tues, 7 July Time : 10am - 1pm Cost : $15.00 which includes tea/coffee/cake plus a basic cushion pattern. Mums/Nana or Aunties need to accompany the juniors to assist as always. "Juniors" are aged between 7 and 14 years old.
