Crazy quilting workshops

 My workshop at the Caboolture has sadly come to an end (it was longer than planned with a few extra classes added) - the only good thing about that is that I have lots of eye candy to share.
For some reason though - the lighting was not great for taking photos.
Any way ...
This work belongs to Ros...............


Who sat quietly next to Julie..................and loved the whole crazy experience.


Her works reflects that......................


Nice juicy spider!!


Isn't this a great block .............lots to see.............


Beads, buttons, charms and silk ribbon embroidery..........


Nice and busy but Ros kept the "shape" of the crazy design within the block - seam treatments clearly defined.


I am hoping that Ros continues with her crazy quilting ................


...........we need to spend more time doing "stuff" that we enjoy...........


.................creative stuff...........................

Well done Ros.
Thank you for doing my workshop and for allowing me to share your beautiful crazy quilting.

Sane and crazy...............

I get to see so many quilts as my "students" often have show and tell.
Deb B's owl quilt.............


....................... a close up.


Gail G's HUGE quilt as you go .....................


Leanne is not a "crazy" person but an "old" friend who popped into show me this striking quilt..............


................made for her daughter. LOVE!!


Oh my hat, Rhoda knows I love all things old. She recently purchased this antique quilt...........


The maker used shirtings on the back - I suffered serious quilt envy that day!!


Back to crazy - I met Liz a few months back when she asked me to do a quilt show in her home town of Dalby.  She then joined my classes at the Patchwork Angel.


Her colours are gentle and pretty.................. much like Liz herself.


I am the "stab stitch queen" and I add them to most of my students seam treatments.


So pretty...........


I LOVE this feather stitch + colonial knots + stab stitches .........

I have been invited to do a weekend workshop with Liz and her friends in Dalby - I am so looking forward to that.
Till next time.

Home alone, quilts and classes

I spent a weekend alone - which, was quite nice - spent my time eating, having a few wines and covering hexagons - a well needed break.


I managed to hand quilt this giant quilt in just 5 days - perfect timing for my husband to take it with him to Canberra - my son and his fiancé have just bought their first home!


Congratulations to Cheryl and Gail who both won first prizes for their crazy quilting at the Nambour Show!


Rosemary's crazy hexagons are coming along very nicely..............


................lots of family treasures kept over the years.


Lorrae ands I have spent a few months transforming this backstitch pattern into something gorgeous.


"Oh bless", Angie, one of my new students has taken to crazy quilting like a duck to water. After completing my beginner classes she is now working on a QUEEN size crazy !!


Her work is striking and vibrant!!


Christina - another newby - has also decided to continue after the beginner classes.


Rhoda's crazy is made up of vintage ties.


And then onto lovely Jocoba, what a pleasure to have her in my classes (all of 7 years now)


Liz's work is delicate and very pretty.............
 I cannot wait to show her work - she has a few more seams to complete - watch this space..
