Day Off!

First day off in ages today....needless to say part of today will be spent with the vacuum cleaner and catching up on the household tasks that have been ignored for the past fortnight.
 My quilting workshop for QuiltNSW went well last weekend. The ladies all managed to get a good portion of the quilting begun or practiced to be completed at home. We were working on my small wholecloth and it was great to see that everyone adapted the design in some way to make it their own.

Have a lovely Sunday

Material Obsession Quilting Class

There are still some places left in my 'Kaffe Quilt Shuffle' quilting class at Material Obsession

Kaffe Quilt Shuffle - Machine quilting
How to quilt your own quilt top and be happy with the results.
Using Material Obsession’s "Kaffe Sampler" as a reference, this class will explore a variety of different ways to approach quilting blocks.
During the workshop you will learn a different approach to machine quilting pieced and appliqued blocks. Each of the 13 blocks, sashings and triangular borders will have  several  different  quilting options from which to choose. Choose to be  "safe", or challenge yourself with more difficult quilting options.
The workshop will also cover quilt top preparation, including:
-wadding types, threads, needles etc
-the quilting sequence
-walking foot and free-motion quilting techniques.
All techniques covered will be easily transferable to other UFO quilt tops waiting in the wings to be quilted.
Suited for: Beginners to more experienced quilters wanting to practice their skills  
Requirements:  a detailed list will be provided on confirmation of booking.
Cost: $150 for two day
