A Wonderful Week of Workshops

I am still in energizer bunny mode, following a wonderfully busy week of workshops at Cottage Quiltworks in Warriewood. Over two days 12 ladies sewed up a storm, making a whole range of Sewmiriam patterns. These ladies were awesome! It never ceases to delight and amaze me when I see my patterns being made into something new and unique. Here is just a small sample of their work.

Caroline brought in this gorgeous fox panel. We designed a bespoke bag pattern around it.

Sue is well on the way to making her Japanese version of the Whopper Shopper bag.
Sue has a great eye for fabric combining and she really knows how to show her Japanese fabrics off to  perfection. 

Sandy is nearly finished her absolutely beautiful Parisian Whopper Shopper too. Here is the front..

Marg is always an inspiration to me and those who know her. She sews tirelessly and beautifully for others and has raised thousands for charities. Here is her almost finished Comfy Carry Bag  complete with magnetic closure flap.

Marianne and Christine were working on their Tote bags. Here is the front panel for Christine's bag. How stunning are those colour combinations.

 I am sorry Marianne that I don't have a photo of your pineapple themed bag, but I think it is wonderful and can't wait to see it completed.

Jill made a beautiful Handy Ziptop Bag. Here is a photo looking in. How clever is that red base! 

Sisters Sherry and Jayne chose beautiful fabrics to make a tote with a British theme

and to start the Pony Express Quilt As You Go Quilt . Here is block 1

Here is Block 2. The colours glow! 

Roddy took to this technique like a duck to water producing these vibrant blocks

This quilt is going to be fabulous Roddy.

Kim is new to Quilt As You Go, but you wouldn't know it by looking at her beautiful blocks . Well done Kim!

Margaret is putting the finishing touches on her exquisite table runner. She has combined soft blues and taupes and the effect is delightful.

How clever are these ladies! I hope you have enjoyed viewing this inspirational showcase, as much as I enjoyed teaching these workshops. Thank you all so much for coming.

Happy sewing, Miriamx
