Starry Skies Quilt Classes


In a few weeks I will be teaching the first of a few quilt classes featuring my pattern, Starry Skies, at HobbySew Beclonnen.  It’s a fun quilt that is originally lap sized but can easily be enlarged.  Read on for details and quilt candy <3

April was such a whirlwind of activity that I haven’t had a chance to blog about all the quilts I finished!  Today I’d like to share Starry Skies (#2) with you (and subtly mention an upcoming class that I’m teaching ;) ).  I also want to apologise that I didn’t post I Quilt last week, I spent Thursday night in ER with my son (he is OK, just a little glue holding his scalp together!)

I first made this quilt a year or so ago in a very different palette for a Kate Spain blog hop.  I love the pink with the grey, but this time I wanted higher contrast.

This quilt is great for imaginative quilting!  You can really go anywhere.  FIrst time around I mixed in some hand quilting and kind of did a shooting stars theme.  This time I went for movement again, but more swirls and bubbles.  It’s also a great one for using up scraps and gaining confidence with improv techniques.  I’m going to talk a lot about colour play in the class as I feel this is an area where we can all always learn more :)

The texture is really quite fabulous (if I do say so myself…) ;)

As pretty as this quilt looks in our house it is on display at HobbySew Belconnen tempting quilters to sign up to a one day workshop with me on the 24th of May.  I’d love you to come along and spend the day piecing with me!  You can call the lovely ladies at HobbySew on and book in :)  It’s $60 for the day and you get cutting instructions to take home and get busy in advance of the class so we get the most out of the day.

    Love both versions but especially your quilting on the newest one! It inspired me to mix some swirls and pebbles on a quilt I am working on :).
