Workshop Dates and Trunk Show

My latest workshop dates are up on the Teaching Schedule page.

I have been invited to do a Trunk Show for the Qld Quilters July meetings, both the day and evening, on Tuesday 12 July.  I always enjoy taking a suitcase of my work to Trunk Shows and sharing how I made my quilts.  I look forward to seeing some of you either at a workshop or two or at the Trunk Show.

Workshop at Palmwoods

I have just finished two days of teaching "Floral Feast" with a group of ladies from the Palmwoods Arts & Crafts group, the first time I have run this particular workshop.  The results were just stunning, I was so pleased and proud of how well all of the 10 ladies did, and whilst they didn't get them finished, what they did achieve was fantastic.

I have finished my latest pattern, titled "Silverwings", featuring a dragonfly with silver thread stitched wings.  the dragonfly is raw edge appliqued, and the flowers and Art Nouveau style borders are turned applique.  Pattern gives instructions for completing all applique by machine.  It's 81cm x 63 cm.  I really enjoyed working with the bright, vibrant colours in this piece and had fun stitching patterns into the background.

Floral Feast Workshop

I have been invited to teach at the Palmwoods Arts & Crafts group in April, and in consultation as to what the ladies wanted to learn, I have structured a new workshop, called Floral Feast.  It is based on my floral quilts and participants will have a choice of three patterns to work from, designed from three of my works.  They will paint their own background fabric and then construct the flowers and leaves whilst working on design elements to come up with their own work of art.  We'll be running over two days, but this workshop has potential to run for double that to take participants right from the start, through to completion.
