Lilly's Sampler Class

Last night was our Lilly's Sampler Class at Lilly Patches.
We always have a lot of fun and laughs.
Here's what the ladies are up to:

Liz is working on a round robin with one of her friendship groups.  Can't show you Liz's part yet as it's a surprise for the recipient but needless to say, that with Liz and applique, it will be beautiful.  The original owner of this quilt has done some lovely embroidery over her fussy cut applique to great effect. 


Maureen has embroidered the cutest little mice for her latest project. They are soooo sweet. She is putting them into the panels of an old fashioned sewing caddy.  The blocks on the left are from the "Choose Your Block Sampler" that we have been teaching. I just love her colours. Knowing Maureen, as our very productive "pupil", she may have finished pieces to show us next month!

Pat's sampler is also coming along.  Her colours are like a gelati, good enough to eat!  She is actually enjoying the process and at this stage is hand piecing her blocks. 

Robyn had more of her 18th Century Star quilt with her this week.  Her autumn tonings are lovely.  She is machine blanket stitching the applique with stem stitch for her stitchery blocks (our original quilt has stars).  Robyn made the stars in the same beautiful tonings but I think they may end up being in her backing.

Unfortunately I didn't take pictures of Lorraine and Divna's work.  Sorry....

Until next time

  1. they all look fantastic...especially love those mice!

  2. G'day. They all look just gorgeous, though I must admit I favour those cute mice. I would like to see the finished caddy they go on. Take care. Liz...

    1. Hi Liz, we will be sure to update you on Maureens progress with her caddy. The caddy is from a magazine and we can't remember which one and Maureen is adapting it to include the mice!! Will post pictures of her progress next month. Thanks heaps xx
