This week I was very lucky to attend a 2 day workshop with Brenda Papadakis of Dear Jane fame. she taught back basting applique and she is a lovely teacher and story-teller so we had a lovely time.
One of the students had brought along their Dear Jane to share.
The project we worked on was called Gracie's Garden and will make a lovely centre piece for a quilt or a small wall hanging.
Someone brought along their Mrs Billings quilt.
More fabulous quilts were shown, including a Baltimore top.
We also saw Linda's fabulous wall of quilts as the workshops were held by Linda at Quilts in the Barn.
Some Lucy Boston Patchwork of the Crosses blocks were shared as well as a very striking quilt made in reds and creams.
It was a lovely relaxing couple of days and I'm home to work some more nights again. I'm very lucky though as I have 2 more days of a Dear Jane workshop to look forward to next week. In the meantime there's work to be done here. There's still a few places left in the classes I think so contact Linda if you would like to join in with the fun.
Hugs, Jan Mac
