Hanging out with Helen

I have been very lucky in the last couple of years when it come to getting into workshop with Australian and International tutors. Many years ago I saw a quilt called Mekong Gold by Helen Godden, and was just amazed at the creativity and beauty. Over the years I have followed  Helen's creative path, I just love the Three Sister quilt, it is just so beautiful.

Anyway a couple of weeks ago I found out the Helen was teaching at Sew This n That in Morayfield. I put my name and Sandra's name on the waiting list, and we both got in to do the workshop. We had so much fun and I enjoyed listening to Helen chatting about her life, ideas and future plans. We also got to see some of her other quilts.

We worked on the 5 x 5 grid on black home spun, I can't wait to  get stuck into finishing it now....

I love doing feathers
My own design

Oh yeah that's right I have to do the shopping, a little cleaning, play in the garden and catch up with blogging. The quilting may have to wait until next week. 

Happy stitching 


  1. Love what you accomplished in the workshop - blow off the cleaning (shopping, unfortunately, is a must & gardening is fun) & sew while the muse is on you

  2. Wow Cath... I love it... your work is gorgeous... and lucky you to get into the class... and especially wonderful to have fun with someone who inspires you...
