Workshop Inner Light w/ Deb Karasik

Inner Light is one of the workshops that we have on offer as part of the Berrima Patchwork - Quilting in the Highlands Retreat in July. 
 
Deb Karasik is an award winning quilter and author of 2 books. Based in Durham, North Carolina USA,  Deb is quilting, teaching and writing professionally, and her travels take her worldwide to share her passion for contemporary quilting, meeting new people, and sharing her knowledge with quilters everywhere.
'Inner Light' is probably the most popular workshop that Deb teaches and makes up beautifully in any colour family you choose! Learn not only the basics of paper piecing, but how colour choices can really make your quilt glow! The Original “Inner Light” was made as a donation for the 2007 MAQS auction held every year in Paducah Kentucky. It was so popular that Deb created a class from this quilt. The quilt is only two blocks, the inner elongated spikey blocks and the outer blocks with the flying geese. Deb in this workshop will take you through all the steps to create this amazing quilt. The finished quilt measures 44” Square.
This workshop will be on the 29th and 30th July 2013 and is part of our Quilting in the Highlands Retreat.

Free Tutorial for Easter


Since I am currently obsessed with sock animals at the moment I thought that in the spirit of Easter it would be appropriate to post an "Easter" themed sock animal free tutorial (now that is a mouthful). This is a very cute sock bunny, that I definitely have on my list to make (when I have the time!) The pattern has been created by Craft Passion and here is the link to the free tutorial http://www.craftpassion.com/2012/05/sock-bunny-sewing-tutorial.html  Enjoy

New Mini Hexagon Set


 This 10 piece Mini Hexagon Set is a little different from our usual templates; these pieces have the centres cut out to make tracing such small pieces easier. There is a 3/4" Hexagon, with matching triangle and diamond, a 1/2" hexagon with matching triangle and diamond, a 3/8" hexagon with matching triangle and diamond and a single 1/4" hexagon (the triangles and diamond were too small!)

Use these templates to make Grandmother's Flower Garden blocks, Hexagon Stars and variations on these themes. The triangle and diamond can be used to join blocks together.
We have these available at Berrima Patchwork online or in store CLICK HERE for more information

Customer Show and Tell

This past week we have had two wonderful finished projects brought into the shop to show to us by our customers.
First up is Dianne's Waratah Quilt. Dianne took Melinda Bula's workshop with us at Quilting in the Highlands 2012. It is amazing and looks fantastic.

 

Our second customer show and tell is this award winning jacket. We would love to congratulate Jane who made this wonderful jacket and has been award 1st place at the local Robertson Show last week. It is definitely colourful, just the way Jane wanted it to be. Jane quilted the jacket but unfortunately it doesn't show up on the photos. It was made using the Sedona Canyon Jacket pattern. Congrats Jane!
