I’ve been ploughing on with the blanket that wanted to be a quilt. I’m at the quilting stage now and so I’ve taken a few photos of the odd few blocks that I’ve finished.










On Tuesday I had to go into the city and while I was there I went to the Quiltsmith. I’ve signed up for two of the workshops for January and I wanted to get the requirements list and take a look around. Guess what? They had a 30% OFF sale. If you live in Sydney then it’s still on. I think it finishes at the beginning of December.

The two workshops I’ve signed up for are KANTHA PEACOCKS, PARROTS & PAISLEYS and EMBROIDERY EMBELLISHMENT TECHNIQUES and I’m really looking forward to learning some new embellishment stitches, especially since I enjoyed the Traveller’s Blanket process so much.

While I was at the Quiltsmith I found the perfect fabric for the binding on the GAZ Quilt. It’s black with red spots. I also bought some gorgeous Japanese fabrics. My favourite, the woodcut one, is a Moda fabric called Kasuri. Anyway here are my purchases.
