The Year is Flying by

Hi Everyone,

Another great day this week. We had a big roll up which is always very, very nice!

Modern Quilt Show:

Some of us went to the Modern Quilt Show which was held in Kiama last weekend. Kiama is such a pretty spot and the weather was perfect.
I was impressed with the entries. Beautiful quilts and a number of quilt shops selling their wares.
Grace received a Judges' Commendation for her quilt. There is a photo below. Grace is teaching the pattern at Material Obsesssion. The pattern is also available for purchase.

Helena's Workshop:

Helena has asked me to let you know what to bring for her free motion quilting workshop on Thursday September 5:

A sewing machine which can lower the feed dogs
A basted quilt or a 3 layered quilt sandwhich piece to practice on
A darning foot for the machine
Gloves with a bit of a grip
Thread, scissors etc.

Helena said to email her if you have any questions.

Show and Tell:

Grace's winning quilt. Grace made an innovative use of 'peepers' which helped to minimise the number of wedge shapes she had to use.
