Mrs Martin's Summer School

Part One The Projects
Saturday was a fabulous day, in fact a perfect day.  The weather was mild and sunny, the lovely venue only half an hour from home, everything was so well organised and the food was yummy.  The best part of all were the wonderful women who organised the fun day and my fellow students who attended the day. There is something about quilters - they really are a happy bunch, especially when presented with such gorgeous projects.

There were three magnificent patterns on offer, each with multiple projects included. We could choose two as part of the day, but they were all so enticing I bought the third as well.
This is Braeside
This is Belmont House
and this is Bradshaw's Corner
Louise and Lisa are the super talented women from Max and Louise Pattern Co who designed these amazing projects.  You can buy their patterns from Mrs Martins Quilt Shop and yes you can shop online.

I decided to start with the table runner
but turn it into a winter scarf.
Remember that bargain wool fabric I bought on sale last year
Well the brown piece is now the base for my scarf.

Stitching this is going to be heaps of fun.  I plan to back it with some beautiful soft Liberty cotton, which I will buy from wonderful Mill Rose Quilting, next time I visit.
More about this fabulous day tomorrow.

I'm a big fan of Natalie at Cinderberry Stitches.  I adore her style.  If you follow this LINK you will find a delightful printable Bunny Bunting which she so generously shares with us as a fabulous freebie.
Huge thanks to Natalie
Have a wonderful day
