2014! Welcome, I'm glad you are finally here...
I plan to meet you with gusto. It's an exhibition year for Wellington Quilter's Guild and I intend to get the challenge done as well as at least one entry. Big news in this house is short critic #1 wants to enter too!
So a round up of what I'm working on right now, and what I want to get done before Exhibition:
Going Dotty classes:
I have been booked in to run two classes for this quilt. The first one starts in February and runs for four weeks at QuiltWorks in Lower Hutt. This course costs $60 per person, plus your fabrics etc.
I will also be teaching this as a single all-day class through the Guild at the end of March (not sure what the cost for that one is yet).
I have finished the whizzery-pokery on mark II and just in the process of binding it and adding the extras. I will get on to writing the pattern for this next month. Then I will need to order enough parts for kits!
Shine Bright, Sleep Tight:
Now that short critic #2 is sleeping in her big girl bed, she needs her own big girl quilt. I have been playing with the technique for Going Dotty and have nearly finished it. Picture and pattern to follow (again the pattern will have to wait until Feb). It will have lots of modern girly polka dots.
This is the quilt short critic #1 is making for the exhibition. It will be a doll quilt for short critic #2 (love my kids!)
Zee Family Tree:
Can't show any photos of this one yet as it is a special tree quilt for a little lad who has just lost someone close to him. So instead have a pic of Helper #1 assisting with Kiwi Christmas II.
And then I have to work out what I am doing for the Exhibition! Man alive I am going to be busy this year...
