The Quilters' Garden Patch

September is here and we quilters are anxious to get back to our quilting.

I sometimes teach classes at a lovely little shop in Bronte (at the west end of Oakville), Ontario. This shop has a very friendly atmosphere, a wonderful selection of fabrics, and offers some really interesting classes.

Last spring I taught a class called Samplings from the Sea. The quilt is a collection of blocks with a maritime theme. This is Louise Robitaille with some of her finished blocks.

This is Amy Hart with her finished blocks.

This fall I will be teaching a workshop called Ladies of the Night--we have a fun evening ( from 7 p.m. to 1 a. m.) of stitching an easy mystery quilt while enjoying pizza and snacks.

I will also be teaching an old favourite pattern--the Dresdan Plate.
We will be making an easy variation done with piecing and blanket stitch applique either by hand or machine. The petal curved border makes this quilt extra special. This quilt has a lot of memories for me as I've made mine from scraps that I saved from my mother's scrap drawer intermingled with some 1930's reproduction prints.
