A New Year teaching crazy quilting.....

It's a new year and I am back teaching - I have two new classes at the Patchwork Angel and with various groups. Its going to be a busy year - which is nice.

One of the classes I teach is this little 6" sampler quilt.

However, I can live vicariously through some of my students - like Wendy B. I do not have the time to do everything I would like - so, with Wendy, I can suggest projects for her and we experiment on her work - such fun.

Cheryl - 2nd Tuesday of the month class - her work is beautiful and I so appreciate her enjoyment of my book (Foolproof crazy quilting) - this is her interpretation of the seam treatment found on page 54 - F's.

In fact, they are many seam treatment from the book in her work. But they look so different to mine which is good.

Her colour palette is gorgeous.

As is her work.

Bullion rose buds .

Button clusters and butterflies.

Once again, thank you Cheryl for allowing me to share your work.

Vickie - Calondra workshops

It's great to be back teaching after a lovely Christmas spent with my family.

The Caloundra workshop is completed but thankfully I have some beautiful work to share.

I apologise for the poor quality of my photos. However, it seemed that I was very good last year and Santa gave me a beautiful new camera for Christmas. (I just need to figure out how it works!!)

Vickie is a very accomplished and beautiful embroiderer - so it was no surprise when she produced wonderful crazy quilting.

Spiders and seahorses.

Button clusters and fuchsias.

Beading and ruched roses.

Ants and bullions.

Did I mention that her work is beautiful?

Here's hoping that when the Caloundra group have joined their blocks they will let me know so I can take some decent photos.
Thank you so much, Vickie, for allowing me to share your work.
