The Heat is On

Summer has now officially arrived, a bit later than usual for Sydney, but boy is it making up for it now. 

We have one more Summer School class to go, and normal classes are starting tomorrow with Linda Butcher. Here is a photo of her new quilt, what a fabulous medallion quilt.  I think I need to find some yellow spot material.

This is How Catherine Butterworth's Summer School Log Cabin class looked.  This is Catherine's quilt.

And here are two student's palettes.  We wait to see their finished quilt.  Catherine will run this class again later in the year.

 Then we had the class shot.

Next was Lisa Walton' Beneath the Surface Summer School Workshop, we had a full house and new skills were learned by many.  Lisa is our own local star quilter, she won the Jewel Pearce Patterson Scholarship for Quilting Teachers from the International Quilt Association in Houston, USA in 2010.

Lisa teaches  all around the world, so we decided it was time she taught us, at her closest patchwork shop to home.  She is very creative, and a caring and sharing teacher.  We warmly welcome her to Quiltsmith's gang of teachers.

Here are some shots from the class.  We are moving into art quilts with Lisa.

Aren't they clever.

We have booked Lisa's next Workshop, on Saturday and Sunday 9 & 10 April.  She will be teaching her Party Time Quilt, shown below.  Please ring the shop if you would like to book in.

Here are more Civil War Blocks.

Kate's joined in our challenge here is her North Star Block.

Then we have Janet's and my Texas Tears blocks.

Then Marj has her Texas Tears and Kansas Trouble blocks.  She wins, mine is still in pieces.

Did I say it's hot, It was 39 outside at lunchtime.  How we keep Marj cool.
