Class action

Christine is making progress on her Strippy Sampler blocks...

while Daphne has finished her feathered star medallion begun at quilt camp two years ago. Good things come to those who wait.
Lauren is working her way through Lots of Dots...

 while Michele has made a great start on 30s Wheel featured in Homespun mag recently with this beautiful centre block...
 and there are four more like this one.
I've had some sewing time lately and am working on a remake of my Crown Jewels quilt using Jen Kingwell's new Gardenvale range. A little bit retro and right up my alley. Love it all!

Four 18" blocks with more borders to come.

Only 29 days to go til the Springwood Quilt Show! We have 120+ beautiful quilts on display and an amazing raffle quilt. Plus 10 traders over three days so come on up the mountains and pay us a visit - last weekend in April and we are open on Anzac Saturday too.
The weather is beautiful at the moment - just a touch of autumn in the air.

Class action

It's like I've never been away! Back into regular classes with lots of finishes lately...
Bronwyn's amazing Pineapple miniature - I think the blocks were 2" square?

Jenny finished and had her Sunflower quilt quilted over the holidays - beautiful.

Not sure of the quilter but she did a great job.

Karen's Birds in Paradise with her own border version.

Lesley's Oriental Mariners - stunning.

I've been quilting lately and had a lot of trouble finding something to mark a cable on the fabric in this border. I finally settled on the Frixion pen and I hope it doesn't come back to haunt me!
Top pic is green pen while the bottom one is black. I went with the green in the end and just need to iron it off now. What do you use on fabrics like this??

ALERT!! Entries for the Springwood Quilt Show close next Friday 13th March.
If you haven't entered yet the on-line form is here along with a printable version you can fill in and  post off. Help make this 10th year a BIG one!
