Now, as I was saying .... the weekend before that I spent in Adelaide really was a spectactular weekend! Lorraine together with her wonderful staff really put together a weekend with the lot for those who came along for the ride!

This amazing quilt top is being lovingly put together BY HAND!!!!!!! The most beautiful Karen, who played 'runner' for the Hettie's Patch weekend, is finishing the edges of her version of Meg's Garden using a blanket stitch!
... an amazing effort and absolutely beautiful work. You are my hero Karen!!!
I also have another version of Meg's garden to show you all ...
... this quilt was made by Roma, who attended the Ballarat Patchwork class earlier in the year! I love this quilt with my favorite coloured background! The class project Sweet Little Garden pillow is also sitting there on the bed! Well done Roma!
Jacob's Coat Quilt Along ...
Thank you to everyone for bearing with me and filling out the Mr Linky thingy ... you have saved me hours and hours of work!!!! At the time of posting this entry there were 164 people signed up! I also appreciate everyones understanding regarding the incorrect naming of the Floriani stabliser!
I have had a few questions that I am sure there are more than a hand full of you wondering about ... so I have started a Frequently Asked Questions page - there is a link to this page on the main quilt along page ... hopefully Typepad doesn't have a limit on pages!!! I have also included an option for those of you, and there are a LOT of you, that want to join in and don't have a blog.
This year Homespun has run a spectular block of the month program that I am sure you will all be famillar with. THis quilt has been donated to the National Breast Cancer Foundation to raise much needed funds for this amazing organisation. Please take a peek at the Homespun Blog to see how you can also help. Homespun will be running another block of the month program next year ... I have a block that is going to be included ... I can't wait to see how the quilt looks as I am among some pretty amazing designers!!
OK I'm off to bed as I have managed to pick up a bug that is making me feel totally crap ... but I will be back on Sunday with the first tutorial for the Quilt Along!
Enjoy the rest of your week!
PS. Thanks to all of you who attended the workshop who allowed me to use your photos in this post! Much appreciated guys!
