Glacier Star

When we, my hubby Jody & I, visit his dad, Tom, and step-mum, Ruve, I ALWAYS take hand sewing. They live in a sleepy country town and we relax the weekend away and of course for me, that means sewing time!  

Earlier this year Tom asked what I do with all these quilts?  Jody's prompt reply was "They're all over the house!!!!"  That may be true, but I have made a lot of quilts for family and friends too, and of course quilts as samples for Max & Louise. 

Tom then asked if I would make him & Ruve a quilt.... And here it is:

It's Glacier Star designed by Judy & Bradley Niemeyer.

I did this as a class at Lilly Patches in Boronia, taught by Anne-Marie Campbell. I love foundation piecing and Judy's method is great. As is her curved seam method. 

Glacier Star finished 60 1/2" square. I'm just adding a 5" border all the way around to make it little bigger. Then a big all over feather quilting and I'll actually have one Christmas present finished!!!

Please tell me there are other people around that are as unorganized for Christmas as we are??? Please??? 6 weeks to go!  Presents to be bought and made, and lunch and dinner on Christmas Day for 30. Not panicking .... YET!!!

 And I'm pleased to say that Lisa is the same (although she has planned all he pressies)!

THANKYOU for the positive feedback we've had for our Airlie and Cranbrook patterns. We are pleased to advise that Mrs Martin's Summer School is now booked out. Can't wait.....

  1. Wow - your quilt is amazing! WOW!! If it makes you feel any better, I haven't even thought of Christmas yet! Been busy with shows, etc. - now it's time to get organized and think about Christmas. But...guess I better get ready for Thanksgiving first!

  2. what an amazing version of the Galcier star. I have only seen them done in the batiks, your version is gorgeous. How lucky to recieve this as a gift.
