This little sock monkey is like a guardian of the classroom. He watches over us and makes sure we're all having fun. As you can see he takes his job very seriously.

Now I have to say straight up - I'm not very good at taking photos. I get so immersed in teaching and helping people that I rarely remember to reach for the camera but I do have a few glimpses of our colourful times together. 

We love the mini irons, so handy and lightweight when ironing lots of little pieces.



Proof that its all just one big sewing party.  

 Jane went from this little blue center 

To this gorgeous flower.

 Christina keeps her triangles nice and neat. 

Very handy for picking the fabrics for this beauty.

Helena used such fun fabrics, the colours of tropical punch.

Here is her finished block with a background of her giant knitting.

Denuta's beautiful center
 became a ric rac star

Denuta also finished another one of her blocks as a cushion

Lyn's gorgeous pine burr is like lavender, rosemary and thyme.

As promised to those who are too far away to visit Material Obsession here are some photos of the shop.

How fun are these big scissors that are casually leaning on the wall near the entrance! 

I'm sure some of you will recognise this quilt airing on the rails as Round the Garden by Wendy Williams. It was the cover quilt of Simply Moderne #4.

A luscious wall of colour! Loving the row of cushions/pillows along the top.

I was lucky to see these gorgeous quilt in the flesh. Swoon!! It's Kathy Doughty's quilt made using Robin Ruth Designs special rulers that make compasses super easy. I love the size of the blocks and the opportunity they give to play with bigger scale fabrics. Of course Kathy is known for using such fabulous fabric combinations. If you're interested the rulers and pattern are available from Material Obsession. 

I still have more fun class photos to share - from workshops in Coffs Harbour, a friendly town by the ocean, I'll save those up for the next post.
