Sandra has made this lovely bag. Some say it would be good for wine but maybe it has other uses.
Linda Has made this bag which caused a few headaches. The size in the book made an odd sized bag so we modified it and now a useful size.
Rae found this pattern in Karin Hellaby's book and bought the material and has made a super job of it.
Sylvia has modified a panel and added her own patchwork in the borders. She has also done some beautiful quilting but we can not see it in the photo.
Pauline has beaten me to it. We saw this pattern in the Heirloom quilting book and some of us decided to try it. The structure is very similar to Cathedral windows.


This is an example of the triangular log cabin for the workshop

May and June students items

Rory has made this baby pocket hanging. Most of this was done at home.

Peggy has made this cushion with the leftovers of the quilt.

Linda has made this colourful play mat for her god children. What a kind grandmother.

Rory wanted to make a baby block quilt and within a few weeks this was made. Apparently matching the joins wer not so easy. The quilt was hand quilted.

Jane has made a complex quilt that still needs quilting but with the leftovers came this cushion. The top has plenty of hand quilting.

Little Margaret has become a designer and created this cushion the other side is below.

Leanna has made up this cock-a-doodle-doo hanging. Can you believe there are bananas all over it.

Betty did the workshop on fabric manipulation and from her own ideas created this cushion.

Betty wanted to try drunkards path so I showed her how to apply a circle to a square and cut into quarters. It might be a cheat but who are you cheating?

Linda has made this soft brushed cotton cot quilt. I am sure it will be cuddled for years.

Susanne has made this gentle cot quilt and hand quilted and applied flowers.

Margaret has made this small quilt. It is hand quilted.

Estelle is making a set of Australian post cards super size. Watch this space.

Another of Estelles postcards.

Lavinia has made this second bag. She wanted to make lots but I think she has changed her mind.

Linda has made this for her grandchildren. This was her own design and worked very well.

Janet has created a quick crazy quilt after the many other ones after the workshop last year.

Carol wanted to try some Bargello and made this rectangular cushion.

Leza has now finished the second cushion. The colours are lovely and this one was quite complicated.

Peggy has made this quilt for a relative in Canada. its a shame you can not see the quilting very well as it was really well done.

Jo bought this beach scene material then put it together in columns. Jo quilted over the water and sand enhancing the quilt.

Leza has become obsessed with foundation paper piecing. this is the first of 4 chair cushions each with a different pattern.

This quilt was made by Hilary. The quilting was designed and hand made. Well done for keeping at it.

Jean has made this quilt for her grand daughter. The quilt was made in 2 halves to simplify quilting. The hearts were bonded on then hand stitched with a buttonhole stitch. The rest of the quilt was machine quilted.

Mags made this lovely bag using a New york beauty foundation paper version and machine quilted. the handles were made and plaited.

Rory has made this super bag and now others want to make the same. I will warn you there is a lot of work involved. i think the pattern was bought by one of the students from Rustic Angels at the Brokenhurst Fiesta 2 years ago.
