Recent Quilting Technique Workshop

Last Saturday I had the pleasure of participating in a quilting workshop across town (an hour and a quarter's drive away) run by published quilter, Mary Williams, where I learned how to do a machine applique technique for a stained glass look.  My good friend, Eve, met me there, and we were joined by two friends from the Gawler Quilting Circle.

My friend Eve chose to do the rose version and I chose the candle - I hope I can get it finished in time for Christmas!


Of all the varied groups I've mixed with during my life (students, dog training/showing, military, diverse work fields, ballroom dancing, homeschoolers, and even church/religious people/groups) quilters are by far the most friendly and genuine people I've ever met - they have been there for me when others have not.

Hopefully when I finish my candle wall hanging I will remember to post some photos here!

In the meantime, here is Mary's version:

Recently tried to do some more work on the 'leadlight' aspect of this small wall hanging, only to discover that my sewing machine was missing stitches! Soooo not acceptable, especially when the stitches will be in full view and not just hidden inside a seam. Will have to give the machine a very overdue service, but very bad timing as we've just had unexpected repairs on vehicles so money is pretty scarce.
