Invisible Machine Applique Class with Western Quilters

September 14, 2011 7 Comments

Hello Everyone We had a lovely time with the Western Quilters Group on Saturday ( 10.9.2011 ). Such an inspiring group to be with. They took on board the invisible machine applique method with great enthusiasm. I am looking forward to seeing the results of their hard work. Here are some pictures of the girls hard at work.

Sorry I am so late in posting a message – as my first ever workshop I found it really great, I learnt so much, my head was spinning by the end of the day – but thank you so much for a great day.

Last week we had a scheduled power cut for our area, meaning I could not do any quilting on the Roses quilt.

This was a great way to get reacquainted with my fabrics, finding all those precious fabrics that just make my heart race. Giving me ideas for my next project, another journey! Benny decided that would be fun and he loves to help, I think he secretly wants to be a quilter too.
