Winter Workshop update

Those of you who are "regulars" at our workshops, know that we have a great day.  Lots of nice people, good food, and plenty of sewing time.  This year we tried something different and offered a Come and Try......kind of idea where we had 4 different blocks to try some people did all 4, others just one. 

This photo is of one of the Pinwheel quilt based on Mary's blocks.  They are made from 2 1/2" strips, and you can use a Jelly roll or just cut off strips from your scraps.  The black and white on lime looks so fresh!
 Another one with Batics, on a black background.  Love this one too!
This is the "original".....Mary's crisp blue and white pinwheel quilt
 The Abacus looks great in this colour group.  Another black and white print on orange background
I think I would like to try this colour combo myself!
 Julie M was pretty traditional with this beautiful blue and white quilt.  All finished on the day.
Again, this is Mary's original - grey and white, with the yellow background.  She is busy quilting it now.
 These are the other two blocks we had on that day.  The Criss-Cross is based on a Wrench block, and it is the placement of the fabrics that makes it look like this woven cross over and under.

A very simple block to make
Finally, the double wedding ring.  This one is a bit of a challenge!  There were a few harsh words said from time to time, but take it easy, and follow the instructions, and it all works out well. 

This block, and the Abacus, were made with the Quick Curved Ruler from Sew Kind of Wonderful.

If you would like Mary and me to come to your quilting group, with a similar workshop idea, please let me know by email.  We are already making bookings for next year!

Talking on future bookings, we have our next workshop on 4th November, Melbourne Cup Day.  It is a Mystery Quilt ?????????????? with fabrics from your stash. Put this in your diary, with further details to come.  You can book now if you wish.  Once again, it will be held at St Paul's :Lutheran church hall in McLaren Vale, South Australia.
