Big Deal

A big statement in record time! This is very simple construction but features large prints in all their glory. Could be a good "stash busters".

Sunday  16 July   9.30-3.30

Cosmic Stars

Here is a chance to wallow in the fabulous possibilities of batiks- making their subtle variations sing OR using traditional prints to make a classic Hunter's Star. Either way this is a great quilt.

Sunday  13 August  9.30-3.30

More Chic than Shabby

A blast from the blast but what is old is new again. The Shabby Chic look is showing up in the home decorating world and this quilt - in any color scheme - would give relief from the hard edge modern trend of the past few years. Many possibilities to make blocks to create your individual style.

Sunday 10 September  9.30-3.30

Blackford's Beauty

See what can be done with a very traditional quilt block! Increase the block size and the design becomes more dramatic and bold. Decrease the block size and the quilt feels more traditional. This pattern can do it all. Good candidate for some of the beautiful prints available.

Sunday  8 October   9.30-3.30
