We were visited today by the Quilt Study Group which is a sub-committee of the NSW Quilter's Guild, and they were on a mission. Looking for fabrics to make a replica of the Frederica Josephson's Quilt. This quilt is owned by the National Trust Australia and was made around 1850-60, in Longueville in Sydney. So we feel quite attached to it as a "local" treasure. The Quilt Study Group is making a replica of the quilt, as it is very fragile, so that the National Trust can display it. What a wonderful project, which Quiltsmith supports. To see more information please go to http://www.australianquiltstudygroups.blogspot.com/.
This is the the start of the the "period correct" fabric selection. Then the discussions started.
This is very exacting fabric purchasing.
We also had a Lynne Alchin class. For those of you who don't know Lynne here she is standing in front of her Elizabeth Medallion quilt.
Her Friday class is a very industrious one.
They make beautiful quilts. Here is the start of Elizabeth's Princess Feather quilt.
Here is a new quilt from Sue Ross (this class was on Sunday). Yum.
Finally here are my last two Civil War Blocks, London Square.
