Merry Christmas from Daisyland

Let's start with a mixed bag of Christmassy photos I've taken over the past week. A star from my GeeWhizz quilt. When I made GeeWhizz, I was worried that it was looking too Christmassy but now we're in the midst of the festive season I quite like its hints of Christmas. It's certainly got me scribbling down ideas for Christmas quilts using these blocks. If any Christmas fans are doing my classes in 2018 and want to make a Christmas quilt as their project let me know, I've got some fun ideas!!  A tiny reindeer spotted on some Liberty fabric I have been playing with.

Classy Fun Times

What a wonderful year it has been! A highlight has been teaching classes at Material Obsession.

Such a wonderful mix of Denyse's fabrics and Kathy's own Horizons range that is coming out early next year. Whizz Bang and Beyond is the name of my classes and the participants really have taken these whizz bang blocks to wonderful new places. These are Jane's blocks...  She's not afraid of adding ric rac and trims where ever she can.  Beautiful colours and mix of fabrics.  I love the mix of text prints for backgrounds.
