Not many more days now until my teaching schedule starts and I am looking forward to seeing everyone again. One of my projects over the holidays was to put together an embroidered and patchwork quilt for Margaret. She had embroidered her 93 year old sister a beautiful lavender blanket from Heather McCallum’s wonderful patterns and wanted to do one for herself but will smaller wool panels, so I came up with the idea for a quilt using some of Heather’s designs and some of my own. Now the results are wonderful but I cannot show you until Margaret has see it - Next Tuesday!
It did get me buzzing about lavender and I have been researching all the different types and have come up with the starter block for my own quilt. I am going to be teaching this a Merimbula at the end of February and I am pleased to say that it is all written up but not yet proofed! I have drawn up the other blocks but will see how far I get in the next few weeks! Here is a peek at the Lavender and it has already got me thinking about free standing versions! I also need to work up some bees and butterflies to add.
