~Past Times....A Quilt Workshop~

I've signed up to do a workshop in September at Step's at Moruya.  It's been a while since I've done one and now I think I will aim for one a year!

I have 25 fat quarters here from my stash......the required amount is 22



All set to make this quilt named 'Past Times' designed by Lynne Wilson

I'm loving the darker colours in it and it just looks so warm and happy!!!

Talking about warm, yesterday we had a slow combustion wood fire installed and now it's toasty warm here...
I'll be back with pics to show it off!!!

Tonight it's the last night of the Melodrama so it's going to be fun, fun, fun!!!
