Darcy’s Girls

Rae was our hostess for Darcy’s Girls this month. We enjoyed the hospitality of her lovely home (complete with new dining chairs!)

20160503-201517.jpgHer studio is a wonderland of fabrics, quilts, inspirations, blocks and boxes of “stuff”!!

20160503-201650.jpgWe were very well fed – and spoilt – with morning tea, delicious home-made soup for lunch, followed by salad and fruit, and then a cake for afternoon tea!

20160503-202113.jpgIn the sewing stakes, Cathie brought along a shot cotton quilt top she’s designed

20160503-202215.jpgand she worked on these blocks

20160503-202301.jpgCarolyn was making a pentagon basket to go with her hexagon box

20160503-202343.jpgRae was stitching these blocks

20160503-202409.jpgJudy was appliquéing

20160503-202445.jpgas was GJ.

20160503-202514.jpgI worked on circles, but you’ll have to wait to see them.

Judy also showed us some of the blocks from her new BOM (Block of the Month) called “This Life” which depicts the journey of a person’s life through appliqué, EPP and piecing.

20160503-202627.jpgThese are just a sample of what will be in the BOM. Aren’t they great? If you’re not from Australia you can nominate your country and you’ll receive the pattern for your country in place of the map of Australis. This will be a 12 month programme and includes fabrics. There are some vacancies still and if you’d like to participate, please contact Judy at averyfinehousebom@gmail.com to sign up.

    Just love the applique! And birds are always a favorite of mine! But how do you get to the stitching with such awesome food?? Even simple fruit plates look spectacular!!! Sigh!!

  3. What a wonderful collection of projects!

    Rae’s sewing studio looks super inviting. I’m glad she has boxes of stuff too. Cathie’s improv style quilt is perfect with those shot cottons. The rest of those Darcy girls are super achievers as well!

  5. Love the BOM what a fab idea..

    You always have the best projects going on and you always make me want to quilt! I found a new magazine yesterday that I should have bought. It had lots of fun mini quilt projects, including a great hexi project.
