All My Santa's Quilt

Here is a photo of my latest quilt pattern.
I called it "All My Santa's" as the different Santa's I have designed over the years modelled for my quilt panel.
The name of the Santa's in the quilt are
Santa & His Snowmen,
Santa & Moosey,
Santa's Gifts,
Santa & Snowie.
I had so much fun painting and stitching the panel BUT I nearlly ran out of time to complete it for the I called on my beautiful little sister Marg to help me with the applique the end she completed three quarter of the blocks for a big thank you to her xxx
A dear Friend of mine picked it up on the Monday afternoon and had it back to me Tuesday night quilted......a job well done...thanks ...
So as you can just see in the picture below it made it to the fair...

My Stand at the AQM.

I have been busy busy busy!!!!!

I have been to Bendigo, Warrnambool & over to Tassie in the last month tutoring. What a ball I have had meeting with the most lovely ladies, I am very lucky to be able to do what I do.

I had my dear friend Paul that I told you about that I had lost contact with down on holidays for a week....we had a wonderful time catching up and will see him again when we head to Sydney for a few days over Christmas.

I had the AQM (Australian Wholesale Quilt Market ) 2 weeks ago in Melbourne. I will add a picture of my stand. You will have to let me know what you think of it...loll.. It was my first time on my own there sooooooo I was a little nervous BUT all went well, catching up with shop owners and other tutors I have had the pleasure teaching for and teaching with.

Off to Bendigo again this Friday to teach my latest Santa then back to Warrnambool for a painting fabric class...the last for the year.

Is anyone out there organised for Christmas yet ?... I can assure you I'm not...loll

Cheers for now I better get to bed....hope you have all been well.

Warraknabeal Workshop

My stand at the Bacchus Marsh Quilt Show.
Hi Everyone.
Hope you are all well.
I have been busy and a tad slow updating my blog...sorry.
Went to Warraknabeal for a workshop back in October, the same weekend the local patchwork group held their quilt exhibition. The local girls asked me to have a stand at their show and of course I said "yes" before I checked my I had 2 places to be at on the same weekend didn't I a good friend of mine Vivienne came to the rescue and worked the stand at the local show for me on the Saturday.
Gail Pan and I traveled up to Warracknabeal together and had a great weekend.
