    Dear Meredithe,

    So enjoy reading about your ‘doings’ & the work of the ladies you encourage in classes. As a result of reading your blog I had a recent visit to L’Uccello & took myself (sadly alone) to lunch at The Hopetoun Tearoom. I was a road buddy for my daughter who was at a conference so she couldn’t share the pleasure of wandering around lovely places in Melbourne with me over the weekend. She attended the Big Hearted Conference & we stayed at a motel in Brunswick for the 3 nights. Big Hearted Conference is for creative entepreneurial young folk (women mainly) & the inaugral conferernce was held last year at Abbotsford Convent & organised by Clair Bowditch (singer). I think you would have enjoyed it too. Last year less than 200 attended – this year 500 so the ‘word’ is out now.

    Now, the reason for my email to you apart than to thank you for all the visual loveliness you post is to ask if you would tell me what pattern/quilt that this lovely starry circle comes from. I am a traditionalist/hand piecer & found this one quite entrancing. Currently I am trying to complete my 1800’s Basket Quilt – pattern by Corliss Searcy. I just love Threadbear shop at Castlemaine & came down for the beautiful Applique Society show held there recently. I have taken a trip down for Quilts in the Barn about 2 years ago & enjoyed that too. BTW, I buy templates too – from Addicted to Fabric where they stock the ones I think you have designed. Was there over the long weekend & the stock looks low – they seem to be really into the Sue Daley items more now. Bit disappointing as I was on the hunt for something nice just like the circle of stars below. Is that one of your ‘packs?’ If so, please tell me which one so I can purchase. Also making (by hand) a 4″ cream star quilt from the American Museum in Bath & wonder if the stars in the circle might be the same size – probably about 2″ though … LOL!
    thank you in advance for your reply.

    The little purse is one of Trish Harper’s , I’m lucky enough to have one myself. The cake had a patchwork look about too !

    I am sure I need patterns for the beautiful blocks made by jane sue2 and Marilyn…..are they your design?…..and what are you reading this year?…I just finished the new malla nunn

  5. I am always amazed at the amount of work your ladies produce! I simply can’t pick a favourite today, they are all so fabulous ……. but I do love the fussy cut hexies. I am drooling over the cake, as this is a “fast” day, and it’s still 45 minutes until dinner!!

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
