Show and Tell in Bicheno

I have returned to teach in Bicheno - a heavenly spot in Tasmania and some of my students brought their quilts from previous workshops to show me. What a wonderful and inspiring collection.
These are from the Breaking the Drought Workshop where we explore different functions of the sewing machine and create embellished fabrics which are then pieced together geometrically.
I am teaching this workshop in Houston this year (but I think it will have a different name)

 These are from my Fabrications workshop and the centres of each block are created from layers of scraps and threads and bits and pieces held together with waster soluble stabiliser and then stitched heavily.

We were so fortunate to be able to stay at Room with a View - a self contained apartment (B&B) in Bicheno. The hospitality of Pam (a quilter) and John was perfect and the apartment was so peaceful and well appointed and topped off with a visit from a local wallaby.

You must have had a class of super achievers! The quilts are beautiful and completely finished, binding and all!

Great work from your students and what a truly lovely place to hold a workshop, one of my most favourite Tassie places.
