Bathurst. It was wonderful to return and spend time with Anni, Pete and their two wonderful children Tim and Sammy as well as visiting with many of my students from my last visit. I was amazed at the amount of finished projects they brought to share with me.
I love this little pillow which Anni's daughter Sammy started in my class last year. It makes me really happy to see young girls stitching.
Here are two Magnolia quilts from my last years class. The top one is Suzanne Glennon Martyn's of Oberon with her wonderful Queensland house in the center. The one below was stitched by Janette Robinson of Bathurst.
Heather Hacker from Windsor Downs NSW also shared her pincushion she made from Anni's and my pattern which was published in Australian Homespun Magazine a couple of months ago.
Roslyn McGovern made her block from Magnolia into a pillow.
During the two day class we had students working on a few different projects. I love the different backgrounds these gals were using for the Robin Run the Hedge Quilts. The plaid one is an old wool blanket.
Many worked on leaves for there tree using all sorts of ribbons and hand dyed threads to create texture. Many also worked on different shapes of leaves.
The one day classes was my Saffron Needle Roll. It was such fun to see all the embellishments and different stitches each student played around with.
