The quilt is looking lovely.
Here is homework completed at Patchwork Plus.
The Jester Quilt will be in Quilters Companion in January.
Here is Jans simplified blue version.
Pat has finished Birds and Blooms.
And here at Cottage Quilt Works Megan has finished May Baskets.
Love them all!
Vanessa is making the most beautiful wedding ring quilt.

Thank you to all the girls who have paid for Summer School the requirements will be sent this weekend.
I called into The Hydro Majestic this week to check out the cafe... Absolutely beautiful if you have time on the way to SS call in and have a look.
The view is fantastic.
I can't believe it's the end of the year and I am doing the last classes for the year.
Birds and Blooms and May Baskets have been popular choices this year with many completed.
The new English Frame Quilt has started the shopping for just the right fabrics, French General and Dutch Heritage have been the most popular choices.
I love shopping for a new quilt!
Do you need an idea for a Christmas plate?
Strawberries with the top cut off dipped in white chocolate with coconut and a tiny piece of marshmallow on the top.
Santa's hats!
So yummy!
I will blog again before Christmas and of course Instagram in between.
Take care everyone,

Summer Scholl

Hi everyone,
All is going well for Summer School.
Rhonda has sold her shop and finished her treatment so here is the start of her red and cream quilt for SS.

It looks lovely. She is also getting the Ann Randoll pattern finished to give to last years girls, it's wonderful to see her so well and enjoying semi retirement.
There are places left in her weekend workshop.
I have been busy with our BOM
Here are the next two blocks.

I just love making these blocks!

Photos just in of The Trundle made in America by Prue McBride her husband did the amazing quilting.

Just beautiful!

My daughter has returned after three months away.
She called into Petra Prins shop and bought this.

Full of beautiful Dutch chintz fabrics.... So beautiful.
I am traveling next year so that will definitely be on my list.
Anna said the shop was lovely and Elsbeth was so friendly, can't wait to visit.

One more photo.
I am addicted to these little pin keepers!
Take care everyone,
