My next quilt class was at Treehouse Textiles. Now that is one beautiful shop. I was a bit nervous driving there as my GPS kept on crashing so I was thankful that I’d left so early. Once I got there though I was enchanted – it is set in a beautiful location with beautiful surroundings. I have a whole lot of photos here to share. The class was a lot of fun, Emma and Sarah were my gracious hosts, yummy lunch was served and lots of fabric came home with me.

As I was teaching at Patchwork Passion the following day I stayed in Cranbourne with my very
gracious host, Lorraine. Again, my Sunday class was a whole lot of fun. Teaching two different quilts can be challenging sometimes, but then life would be boring if we did the same thing all the time, wouldn’t it?
Once more gig after that – Phillip Island. I was very honoured to be invited last year to submit a couple of quilts for Phillip Island. As I said when I was introduced, it was such an honour to be asked because I know how difficult it is to get into this retreat – you have to wait for someone to “drop off the perch” to get a spot!! J This was a full-on class – teaching clamshells, but, again, it went smoothly with lots of laughter and I was sad to finish on the Sunday. Clamshells is such an easy class for me – the method is so simple I usually say I can teach the class within half an hour and then leave. The rest of the time we just “muck around”.
Again, I was very honoured to be asked to stay back on the Sunday night to do this class again with the other members of the Phillip Island Quilters who couldn’t make it to the retreat. I stayed with Joan and Bill in their fabulous home on Phillip Island and had my own lovely room. Again, this was a great class.
I have another class this week at Patch n Quilt and something special in Ballarat on Sunday 25 May which I will talk about in my next post.
On reading through my posts I realise that I always describe my classes as “a lot of fun”. And this is so true. If you can’t have fun and a LOT of laughs then for me its not worth teaching. Quilting should be fun, relaxing with a whole load of laughs!
