End of the year.

 Hi everyone, I can't believe I am teaching the last classes for the year! A very busy time for me as I need my samples ready for 2012 and all the requirements lists done, get ready girls as I have already had one class and there was a lot of decisions to make and of course shopping for just the right fabrics.
For all the girls not in classes and have asked for patterns the correspondence school will begin in February so email me your details to get the information to sign up in January. 
Let us look at some beautiful quilts.
Karen has finished her Sampler and Cream Tea, she has been very creative and added more hexagons onto her quilt, just stunning.

In the Glenbrook class three girls are making Anna, I think it is really interesting the differences in fabric choices.



Last week I hired a movie called From Time to Time by Julian Fellows staring Maggie Smith I hadn't realised it was based on the book The chimneys of Green Knowe by Lucy Boston it is a lovely story but the best part was seeing Maggie Smith in a couple of scenes sewing a Lucy Boston quilt.
Here is Robyn's Lucy Boston quilt, mine is still one of my favourites.

Helen has been finishing and brought along her buttercup and cream tea.

Here is a quilt by Chris who works for Rhonda at Post office Patchwork Glenbrook, she just kept covering hexagons with fabrics that came into the shop and joined them together with no mosaic pattern in mind just kept sewing. It really is stunning to look at.
Di brought a couple of her antique quilts for us to have a look at just lovely, don't old quilts feel beautiful.
It is nice to think that if my UFOs and quilts end up for sale a quilter will come along and buy them and give them a good home, perhaps finish the projects in the to do basket.

It is nine p.m so I must pack my bag for Mittagong tomorrow so goodnight to all,
