So Faye and I headed down south - a 4-5 hour drive to Mount Gambier and Millicent where some enthusiastic quilters spent a day sewing under Faye's guidance - definitely not mine!! I complain constantly about piecing which I hate and for the record here is a close up of my recent centre seam of a 20 inch cushion - I couldn't even get four 10" squares to meet so that is why I applique!!!
All transfixed under Faye's spell!
Hmmmm.....a few lines to mark
...and with used soap which Faye assured us had not washed her dear husband's "you know what"!!!
Sorting the fabrics...
Butterfly fabrics - the symbol of the Bedford Group
Inevitable quilter behaviour - I'm sure it is just stress relief from all that piecing!!
bribery for even more piecing.....
and I even helped some workshop participants - yes piecing!!
Check the look of disgust on my face - my seams did meet though - Faye checked!
At the end of the day we were rewarded by our wonderful host Clinton
(Hostess Trish was poorly in bed from an egg allergy).
They were the best garlic prawns ever - thanks Clinton!
