Quilting in the Highlands and what a great event it was. I was so honoured to be in the company of such amazing quilters. From the USA was the charming Carol Doak who has written an amazing 19 books with No 20 on the way! Carol is the trail blazer for foundation piecing and how incredible to have her here in Oz. And if that wasn't enough there was the delightful Melinda Bula. Do check her site......her floral art quilts are just incredible. I actually have her book at home and forgot to bring it for the autograph!
Leesa Chandler and I think if we were to do too many retreats together there could be a bit of mayhem....she is such fun and we will meet up again in Houston! Completing the Oz crew was the talented Sue Dennis. Her art quilts are sensational so check her site. So I felt quite overwhelmed to be in this company but we "soldiered on"....thank-you to the 30 girls who attended my classes. I didn't get any photos of the first class but below is the second one. This is the only time this will ever be taught and was an exclusive for the retreat. Great effort girls........
Bradman Museum. Sir Donald Bradman actually spent most of his life in our home city but this is where his cricket career started. (I might add that Larry was an amazing cricketer as well. He was fast bowler - his best score 6 for 16!!)
