Merry Christmas

I am going to finish this year with a final, very appropriate Christmas Quilt.  This cute little quilt was made by my customer Denise and quilted very simply with an all-over design of stars and loops.  I hope you are enjoying your quilt at the moment Denise.

I would like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas, a wonderful festive season and a healthy and happy 2012.  Thank you to my readers for stopping by this year - it has been another wonderful year of quilting.  I am certainly looking forward to the quilts 2012 will bring.

Ricky Timms is coming to Australia

I was very excited to meet the extremely talented and very friendly Ricky Timms in Houston last month.  He was more than happy to pose for this photo together.  If you are not familiar with Ricky, go and check out some of his quilting and musical achievement on his website.

As I didn't take any classes with Ricky, I was thrilled to find that he will be coming to Australia next year.  Ricky is going to be teaching an all day class on Friday 28th September, 2012 at the Australian Machine Quilting Festival  at the Adelaide Convention Centre.  Registration for the Ricky Timms all day seminar "Ricky's Best Kept Secrets" opens on 15th December, 2011 through the AMQF website.  More information is also available through the AMQF Blog.

The AMQF is being run over 4 days from 28th September through to Monday 1st October, 2012.  The festival is catering for all machine quilters from Longarm quilters, Mid arm and domestic sewing machines.  If the 2010 AMQF was anything to go by, it will be another wonderful event and I am certainly looking forward to attending.
