Time management.

Hi girls,
Boy doesn't time fly! I am at home more this year and really don't know what happens to the day, I look at the clock and it's nine in the morning the next time I look it's three in the afternoon!

I receive lovely emails each week asking about purchasing my patterns.
I don't sell patterns commercially but I am happy to print a pattern for you.
The only retired pattern is Antique Appliqué.
The patterns for classes 2014 are also unavailable.
Let's look at photos.
Here are two beautiful finished quilts.
Irish circles by Kerrie and Miss Austens Garden by Elizabeth, both girls attend classes at Cottage Quilt Works.

I have a group of girls doing The Sampler quilt in The Netherlands with willeke at her shop Fat Quarters, here they are working hard.

Another group started this year at Patchwork Plus Miranda Australia.

It's such a small world.

I had a request for a photo of my Lucy Boston to see how it was quilted.

Fancy border by Connie Macy a truly gifted machine quilter.
Big blocks in the ditch.
Now for a few Fussy Cutting wonders.
This one always makes me smile.

Many more to come so much fun to do.
Well it's lunch time ,my parents are here and they are fussy cutting mums Birds and Blooms, there seems to be a lot of discussion as to the best method to fussy cut so I best get in the middle, ha ha.
Take care everyone,
