Hello Again

 Hi ... did you think I had dropped off the face of the earth?   I have had to have a little break but here I am again.

I have a few pictures of some quilts I have just finished.  I have a customer who hand pieces her blocks, then she gets me to put the blocks together with sashings and borders and quilt them ... this is her house blocks ... so cute.

And this same customer gave me two  Maisy panels and asked me to make a quilt for her grandson ... this is the completed quilt.   She had a strip of Maisy fabric which I used at the top of the quilt to make it a bit longer.

I was also recently in Adelaide for a workshop with Internationally acclaimed Long Arm Quilting teacher, Sharon Schamber.   Her work is truely stunning and if you have a spare $20 or $40 Thousand she may quilt for you!

While I was in class, I did what I usually do  - draw -  it helps me to retain what is being said and I find I can usually recall the class better at a later date.
Anyway ... I thought I would share it with you because it is so much like my super custom quilting (that no-one else can afford either as it take so much longer and would cost at least three times the usual for a custom quilt).  But ... if you did want this type of quilting ... intensive and beautiful ... I would certainly give you a price!

Hope everyone has a great weekend ...  cheers Jane x
