It's a wrap

The Judy Newman weekend workshop has come to a close, and some beautiful things have been accomplished. When compiling these pictures from todays class, it's become evident how eclectic every persons block is and how this all starts from one fabric choice. From there, it grows until the fabrics choose themselves, (along with a nudge from Judy). We've seen some beautiful finished quilts from Mary-Ann and Carolyn, and we've seen some fantastic starts to new creations. Thank you Judy for coming to teach, and for everyone who wanted to learn. What a great way to spend a weekend!

Sue and her Mayfair block that includes beautiful Art Gallery and Kathy Doughty fabrics. Sue's nails almost match her fabric choices, so I wonder then if choosing her fabric was a conscious choice or does she naturally tend to choose those colours?

Judy Newman weekend workshop 18th March - 19th March

The inspiring Judy Newman is coming back to Adelaide to teach a weekend workshop at Hettie's Patch. Here she will teach appliqué and piecing techniques, and you can see how she includes embroidery and quilting to continue the story of her quilts. She has a lovely sensibility of colour and pattern that is reminiscent of a vintage look but with clear gentle colours. She will help you choose colour and pattern so that you have something you really want and something you really want to continue to work on. If you would like to see more of her work, her instagram account is Judynewman, and her website is called averyfinehouse.com.au.

The weekend workshop will be from 9:45am to 3:30pm on the Saturday and Sunday, and lunch and will be included on both days (as will afternoon tea). For further enquiries or to book your place on this great weekend, call the shop on 08 8346 0548.
