September 2015


Well, September is here and my classes start on the 15th and for me September is the month that I start thinking and making a list of the things I make for Christmas! After all it’s not that far away and I try every year not to have that mad rush to get all the presents completed. And usually fail!!!


August went in making postcards, seven in all, a ‘Stone Cottage’ box to hold Quilted Postcards, which was a birthday present.


Also making Laura’s dress, another 1950’s inspired design which we had to buy 5m of fabric and also 5m of lining. I also made my skirt and top for my niece’s wedding. Her wedding dress fitted like a glove (after a bit of modification by myself) and she looked brilliant!


Looking forward, I have a few new ideas for class, Patches the Pony, showing ‘One Seam Flying Geese’ pattern and a variation and a Star cushion. I will also be showing some of my ‘old’ designs.


Toadstool Quilt also published in this month’s Popular Patchwork Magazine


For those of you on Facebook I regularly post pictures of what I am working on and also tips.
