Gail Pan Designs.

At my quilting group's  last quilt meeting for the year we presented quilts to Peter Mac, Foster Care of Vic and Anglicare with a total of 318 for the year.  After the Gift Quilt Show and Tell we have about 20 quilts ready for next year's donations.
     We shared a lovely morning tea and our guest speaker was Gail Pan. She entertained us with the story of her quilt journey to where she is currently as an author of 4 books, many patterns, fabric designer and international teacher. Gail specializes in stitcheries and needleturn applique and she shared many of her quilts and smaller stitchery projects.
      I always like to support local designers and I couldn't resist buying 2 of her books some of her fabric and a beautiful pattern. The pattern will be ideal for using a variety of my accumulated fat quarters and it's a mux of easy piecing as well as applique . It's tempting to start a new project by starting this pattern bug tye UFOs are still demanding attention. The question is how long can I resist the need to start something new.  Lol. Check out Gail's web page too as she has many lovely designs to tempt you.
Hugs, Jan Mac
