I spent yesterday in Newcastle with a 17 other Novocastrian Quilters. We had all signed up for a class with Pam Furniss to do her beautiful quilt "Everlasting".
Pam is a wonderful teacher. She is patient with those new to hand applique (me), and has a wealth of knowledge of all things "quilty" which she willingly passes on.
The quilt is hand applique, (she uses the freezer paper method ...I found this quite do-able), and  quilt-as-you-go. Next time we get together she will be going thru' some  free-motion quilting techniques with everyone.
A good day I feel I achieved a lot...BUT have lots of homework....I'm worried I won't keep up as I am back quilting in the shed fulltime again now that school has gone back.
Some days I wish I could swap places with these two best friends....what a life!!!

  1. Good luck with the Applique, it's something I love, but I'm just not good at it. I know they say PPP, but a person has to be honest with themself and say "I'm rotten at this!!". I love the pic of the two best friends, your right, sometimes it would be nice to just have someone do all of the caring.
