Christine and I have been frantically trying to get everything done before we close our shop in a month's time. As that date approaches, I have been madly thinking of things I want to make in the future, and what I might need for the projects.
Last week I had to go to Melbourne to the doctor, so I made the most of the trip and had some new window templates made for fussy cutting.
I loved the little clamshell from the V&A museum quilt, so I had one of those cut to size, then a tiny little tumbler as I may as well cut out one of those quilts when I cut out the clamshell. Tumbler quilts make great hand projects.
I also had a set of large circles made on three sheets. The sizes range from 1 1/2" to 5 1/2".
One of our most beautiful customers just made a gorgeous quilt for her granddaughter appliqueing circles onto 6" squares. She joined the fabric for the back of some of the squares and it looks divine, all in citrus colours. Christine and I are very tempted to copy!

I am still going through the cd of the show and tell of our summer school. These are a few more of the gorgeous quilts we viewed
"The Wickersham Quilt" was such a wonderful quilt to make. We made our Wickersham quilts in a class over two years. I still have to put my quilt together and applique a few of the side blocks. Its one of my quilts at the top of my list to finish this year.
Karen Cunningham brought out some of her quilts from past summer schools. "Bluebell" is one of the loveliest quilts we had at out summer schools
And this one "Yorkshire Dales" made from one of Karen's classes two years ago was a real stunner!
Happy quilting, Susan
