Class show and tell


Carole had her grandson’s quilt back from being quilted.  Just in time to celebrate the Tigers win in the AFL Grand Final (for those of you not in the know, this is Australian Rules Football and the Richmond Tigers hadn’t had a win for many decades, so there’s been much rejoicing in Tiger fan households!)Carole also brought in her friend Judy’s first ever quilt to show us all (and you).  Clever lady!  Self taught, just from the pattern and a bit of sewing knowledge!In class, Carole worked on her new blocksLeanne has been hard at work on “our” quiltwe worked through what’s next and in class Leanne worked on a new project from Sue DaleySue E and I sorted out what she’s doing with the next “Matilda” BOM blockMarilyn decided on a background to combine with a Layer Cake from Brigitte Heitland of Zen Chic fame called “True Blue” (very Australian!) to make a “Welsh Quilt” (pattern by Sandra Boyle, Everyday Quilts)and Sue W worked on the next block of her “Bird Walk” BOMAfternoon

    Have fun Fernanda with the Dancing Dollies. I’m making this quilt for my first granddaughter. I finished the Dollies and put them together in a Circle. Greetins, Mirjam from The Netherlands

  2. It just goes to show what even a beginner can do, with a bit of perseverance!

    My husband’s family barrack for Hawthorn, so I guess I won’t be mentioning the AFL…
