Branching out with Brigitte

This week was my last class with Brigitte Giblin at Southern Cross Needlework, Maitland. This has been fun, but Brigitte is super busy so will not be teaching this far from Sydney next year (she has left room for a possible return when life settles a bit though!). It has been great to soak up a bit of her creativity, and it has been wonderful to get to know some really great & supportive stitching ladies. We actually have decided to stitch along together next year as we were all a bit sad at the thought of "losing" each other...lovely to make new friends. Chris has even put her hand up to join us at Nundle...a brave soul indeed and we will love having her! I am so glad this group is staying together.
Here are some snippets of our interpretations of Brigitte's designs shown this week...
Chris has done an amazing job with lime linen and hexies in a Reece Scannell shot cotton...this was so mouth wateringly delicious! Loved it...the colours are amazing!

On a gentler note, this was being nurtured along with the most amazing fussy cutting! Go on ...zoom in!
As usual Brigitte was full of inspiration...
a beautiful hexie bag...
and a piece that I was drooling over! Definitely on my aspirational sewing list.

Lovely, lovely! esp the chunky squarish double wedding ring. I have the pattern for the little purse - so sweet...I've been feeling the need to get back to some hexxies lately.

All beautiful but I'm loving the hexie bag with frame. Never tried a frame before. And that last quilt definitely gets the heart beating a wee bit faster.

I'm going for the prize of last one finished on the MO quilt, congratulations on getting it done.
Love the little purse, I have the pattern and I'm saving that one too.
The best part of classes are the friends you make, I'm so drooling over the the last quilt.
Have fun at Chooky's!!!
