QC and Thelmas Cottage

Have you seen the latest issue of Quilters Companion magazine - issue 82? I'm the featured dvd this time with my Pickled Fish quilt. It was such a hoot filming way back in July and they do a great job to make us all look our best on the day. The pics in the mag are excellent too so if you give this foundation pieced project a go please send me some pics of your blocks.

Up-close peek...
 ...before quilting .A good scrap-buster too!
Recently I spent the weekend at Thelma's Cottage, Belinda Betts' fantastic studio in the hills outside Orange. Day one was my Crown Jewels quilt below, with EPP dresden-like blocks.
Here's the lovely host with hers, whipped up in a flash.
 Look at that fussy-cutting!
 Morganne, all the way from Griffith.

 Wow Sue!
Day two was the more involved Pickled Fish block from the QC magazine. The girls all came armed with their own copy and we set to foundation piecing those pickles.
 Beautiful work from everyone and all different.
And this last one is by Janette from @fatquarterbird on IG - nice work using Jen Kingwell's lawns I believe.
Not long now til my Xmas break - really looking forward to that!
 Don't forget the Modern Quilt Show on this weekend at Glebe Town Hall.
