Mariner's Compass Weekend Retreat

I was invited to a retreat to do a Mariner's Compass Workshop, we stayed at a wonderful house in Samson near Fremantle.

The first lot of photo's are the beginning of the blocks.





It didn't take to long before the blocks were made.

Rita plans to do a few more blocks and make a quilt.

Chris will make more blocks for a quilt.
Cassie is going to make a cushion.

Nikki will make a small quilt.
Val's block was quilted and made into a cushion. 

Eileen plans to make a few more blocks and turn them into cushions.


Janie will make a quilt.
All the blocks look great and I am looking forward to seeing the cushions and quilts all made up.
It was a great weekend and I look forward to our next workshop together.
Thanks for stopping by

Hexagon Quilting

When I received this quilt I really did not know what I was going to do.  

I thought I would carry the design through, so I digitized the star that was appliqued and stitched it inside the quilted hexagons.

Filling up all the space.

The stippled hexie was decided at the last minute.

 A few stars echoed floating in the stippling.

I quilted half stars in the half hexie border.

The applique stars were also quilted around.

Stars were quilted in the large hexagons.
Close up of the stippling.

Completed and I am happy with how it has quilted out.

Ready for pick up.

Labyrinth Quilting

This is my first custom quilting for 2014.
I was excited to start the quilting and happy with the result.
The quilt was made by a student at a workshop I had in my studio.
 Hope you enjoy the close ups.
Queen size.

 It is great when there is a plain back as you can flip the quilt just to show off the quilting.

Ready for pick up.
Thank you for taking a look

New York Beauty

 The last six blocks are all quilted.
I have enjoyed trying to make every block quilt design different, although there were some favourites that I quilted a few times.



I decide to quilt the block design onto the outside border.
I love this quilting design in the blue border.  
I did stipple behind the design in the outside border but I forgot to take a picture.
You may be able to see it in the picture below, although the fabric itself is very busy.

Hope you have enjoyed seeing all these blocks.

Thank you for taking a look and I hope you pop back soon.

NYB Row 5

This is the fifth row and the quilting is coming along nicely.


I am amazed at what designs I come up with, one more row to go.
