Last years block of the month

Sunday in my sewing room.

Hi everyone,
I feel like July has been a very long month!
Today I am in my sewing room preparing block three and four of the block of the month.

I love making this quilt, looking forward to some stitching later on.

My trip to Port Maquarie was wonderful, Stitched and Framed is a lovely shop with a light and spacious class room.
Lots of fun with our magic mirrors, fabric designs take on a whole new use when we fussy cut.
Lovely to catch up with my Port Maquarie friends, see you all next year.
Samples of fussy cutting in port.
Great class room.

My Plain and Fancy above.

I didn't get to Port last year so two years later some truly inspiring finished quilts.

Denise has been very busy.
The sampler just needed a border.

A couple from Sue.

The start of Jester and Irish Circles.

The Jester pattern is going in Quilters Companion this year.
Here is a sneak peek of the beautiful quilting Kim Dolan has done on Sue Brooks Jester which will be used in the magazine.....yes that means mine wasn't ready.
Sue's work is so beautiful, her appliqué is well perfect.

Best get to work or I won't be ready for Cottage Quilt Works tomorrow, still in my PJ's
Lastly my daughter Anna is off to work in Ireland, having an English mother finally paid off.
I haven't seen any of my children off at the airport for an indefinite time, girls that is really hard!
Well I guess that means I get to see Ireland.
Have a great day everyone,
