New Workshops for the New Year

I have been busy writing up some new workshops for 2016 and have finally finished the first one.  It's a Curved Surface Piecing workshop, and to get participants going, they will select one of my two latest table runner patterns to learn the technique with.  I made the flower one first, then decided a beachy themed table runner would be a nice alternative to opt for.

If you are keen to have a go at this fun and easy technique for piecing curves, then book into one of my workshop dates at Patchwork Angel at Forest Glen, or contact me about coming to your group.

Quilters Companion October Issue

The latest edition of Quilters Companion Magazine has hit the news stands, and has a little project of mine on the cover.

This is the first time I have had a project published, and is a new little bird wall hanging I made especially for the magazine. 
So if you love my other bird patterns, grab yourself a copy of the mag, as there is a bit extra on painting the birds with lovely colour illustrations.
They have also included a profile of myself, which is beautifully put together, thank you Quilters Companion

Queensland Quilt Show

Yesterday the Queensland Quilt show opened, and the quilts on display are spectacular!  If you live close enough, I thoroughly recommend a visit, a lovely day out.

My quilt, Coreopsis, was awarded 1st Place in the Professional Pictorial section, and I'm very pleased to say the least!  Competition was stiff and a big congratulations to all the winners, including the stunning Best of Show.  You will soon be able to see all the wonderful winning entries up on the Queensland Quilters website, so keep an eye out for their show report.

I was very excited and happy to receive a beautiful prize of batik fabrics from Wacky Jacky's
Thank you so much Jacky, I love my new fabrics and will very much enjoy sewing them up.
