My Welcome Back

12 May

Hi Everyone,

I just had to show a picture of the Welcome Back wallhanging that Judy Betts made and was on the wall when I returned on Monday, it is so good and I was delighted, thank you Judy.

DSCF1845I seem to be catching up on jobs slowly, but somehow I always seem to forget something and then remember it a 3.00am in the morning! Anyway here are a couple of things I have remembered, firstly Kevin has cut Jelly Rolls in the new French General range ‘La Belle Fleur’ all 2 1/2″ strips, we have also decided to cut Jelly Rolls in the Moda Marbles Brights, there are 2 of the majority of colours so would be enough to use as narrow borders.


Don’t forget to check out the classes, there are few that have filled up, but we can always start a Wait List so when we have enough numbers we can try and get the tutors to take an additional class if required.

We have a new Beginners Class starting in September, this is a follow on from the Table Runner class I run and would be great for those who just want a little more reassurance and learn a few more techniques, I am hoping to load the details for this in the class post in the next few days.

Until next time and Happy Mothers Day & Quilting



The Wedding

11 May

Hi Everyone,

I seem to be doing everything backwards at the moment, but I thought you might like to see my daughter Georgina and her new husband Ferry on their wedding day, these are the only professional photographs available at the moment.


The next photograph is of the beautiful venue for the wedding the Kenwood Inn and Spa in Sonoma, California

I shall be uploading more pics now I finally have my camera working properly!!!

Until next time, Happy Quilting

Snowy Denver!

imageHi Everyone,

This what I woke up to this morning when I looked out of my bedroom window, seems odd that there were girls sitting around the pool sunbathing just two days ago! The forecast is for between 4-8″ today! Samantha took me to Snappy Quilts yesterday, very interesting, it seems to me that whilst in the east of USA  where Samantha lived before a lot of the fabrics were traditional, here in Colorado the fabrics are very contemporary eg: Creative Thursday for Andover, Kaffe Fasset, Brandon Mably, Valori Wells, Denyse Schmidt and Tula Pink.

What a selection for quilters, I also noticed that the shop samples were mainly Fat Quarter Friendly

More to come & Happy Quilting
