Quilt Patterns

February 19, 2013 2 Comments

Hello Everyone Where does the time go?  I hope it slows down soon, I have a plan not to let it get away from me this year, although I am not sure it is working. Last year was full of deadlines which kept me on track but did not allow for much creative time out, so I am hoping to make this year more flexible. However I did get time to have a lovely quilt published in the Australian Patchwork Magazine a two part pattern for January and February editions. I have been working on pattern writing all last week and have the pattern finished for this lovely quilt. Pattern available here.

I am soooo happy to have these quilts finished, all the hard work is now worth the while. Pattern available here. [caption id="attachment_1372" align="aligncenter" width="743"]Wilflower Wildflower[/caption]   My schedule for this year has several teaching engagements. I will be teaching invisible machine applique this Saturday 23rd Feb at All Things Patchwork. If you would like to do a class with me you can contact Cheryl. If this class is full I will be doing more classes so you can always put your name down for a future class. I will be teaching my Starflower table runner, you will learn the method for invisible machine applique or if you prefer to stitch by hand this method can also be used. My table runner is in the shop if anyone would like to take a look. When you have done my applique class, there is a great opportunity for those of you who need extra help, or would like to make any of my patterns to join my group I am going to be running at the shop. I am looking forward to this, it will be loads of fun and a chance to learn and share and make some lovely new friends. For more information on this group contact  Cheryl at All Things Patchwork. I am also teaching machine quilting classes at All Things Patchwork in March 11th and 18th. This should be a fun class, learning to quilt lovely feathers and fill in designs and quilt those large quilts with a domestic machine. Wow that is a lot of information

Sharon your quilts and patterns are stunning! I would take a class if I could afford a trip to Australia. I guess I will have to just follow your blog. The Blue Garden is my favorite. I like the combo of applique and piecing in this quilt. I was thinking this morning about looking for something in blues and taupes for my guest bedroom. Do you think taupe in place of the red would be too blase? Anyways love the quilt!

Hello Joanie
Thank you so much for your kind words, glad to have you as a follower. Although we are relativity close to Australia, I live in New Zealand. I like the lift the red gives the quilt, you may have to do a test with the taupe and see how it looks, I would love to see what you come up with.
