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 also finished the pattern for my Wildflower quilt that I have been working hard to finish. I am soooo happy to have these quilts finished, all the hard work is now worth the while. Pattern available here.

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

These last six weeks have flown past, I have loved writing about the 'Treasures from the scrap bin quilt', seeing everyone's progress and reading all the comments. This week is all about quilting the quilt. Although I feel the quilting part of making quilts is not my strongest point, I do quilt all of my quilts......
Adding the borders, it always amazes me when the next step is added, how the choices of fabric can change the look of the quilt. This is true for the first inner border, although it is only a small addition it is a game-changer. The applique adds another dimension. Read more about the borders and techniques............
Wow! it has been so great to see what you have all created, I have loved seeing all your fabulous blocks. This week we are going to start off with a wonderful giveaway from Sentimental Stitches, they have kindly sponsored a giveaway for one of their fabulous PDF patterns.
