Quilt in a Day

 Once a term we have decided to pick an easy quilt design, bring some food to share and sew all day and have some fun.
Yesterday was our first Quilt in a Day for the year....we got rid of lots of scraps with a strippy, scrappy number.

Cant wait for the next one.....

Road Trip

On Saturday some like-minded sewing friends and I went on a road trip to Newcastle.
We were headed for the Cathy Jack Coupland Exhibition  at Timeless Textiles in Newcastle...we did eventually get there. Lovely colourful display of work.

We did however feel it was our duty to check out a few of the local patchwork shops along the way.....someone has to do it....On-Point in Waratah, Zig-Zag Sewing at Georgetown, and Quilt-Essentials at their new shop in Adamstown. Lovely lunch in Darby St. We had such a good time we will do it again later in the year.

This beauty went home this week....

In the January holidays I attended a braiding workshop and I am pleased to say that I have managed to organise a braiding workshop here at Red Shed Quilting with Barb Travis to be held on the 9th and 10th July. Call me for more details if you are interested 0243940904.
It was one of the best workshops I have attended in a while.
