Weekend Workshop

It is always a great treat to teach in Sydney. I get to sleep in my own bed and don't have to stress about packing and forgetting things so it was a great thrill to teach for the Quilters Guild of NSW the last few days.

Textured Treasures was the workshop of choice and although the weather didn't behave perfectly to allow sun printing we still had a very creative time. Some really interesting fabrics were created with hand carved stamps and rubbings and fabric paints and foils. A beading lesson was included so I am sure there will be some beads added once the quilts are quilted.

Alan managed to piece his little quilt  (above) by the end of the workshop using his lovely stamped fabrics.



 Yvonne already had her inspiration image of tree bark and leaves  in mind
 She then pieced and free motion quilted the pieces which are going to be joined with the blue leaf printed fabrics (all created from scratch in the workshop)

 Some of Alan's fabrics
 Susan was very new to this sort of work but I loved this stamp she carved a really interesting design which layered beautifully. We use EzyCarve stamp materials in the class which is like cutting into butter.
 This gorgeous print was created with the fabulous Wet and Grow.



 Another fun couple of days which also included a quick visit at lunchtime to Sweetness the Patisserie which was nearby
