Last week we had some fun classes. On Wednesday we made 'Banana Bags' - these are not bags for putting bananas in, but a generous sized zip up bag designed by Wendy Williams that is great fun to make and looks fabulous. Unfortunately I forgot to take a photo of Lynda's finished bag yesterday.
On Saturday we had a full house for the Pop Stars class. Pop Stars is a quilt from the Material Obsession books.p This is one of my favourite classes as we get to relax and have fun while making beautiful blocks. I have posted more photos on Facebook (www.facebook.com/quilterslane) and Instagram (quilterslanesheila) but here is one of the stunning blocks:
One of the advantages of my job is that I get to go to lots of classes and workshops. This weekend I am looking forward to attending the Aotearoa Quilters Tutors' Seminar in Wellington. This course is going to cover teaching patchwork and quilting, judging quilts and using social media. Hopefully I will learn lots that I will be able to put into practice. Aotearoa Quilters is the national quilting association for New Zealand ( Aotearoa or 'The Land of the Long White Cloud' in Maori).
