After work on Friday evening, Karen and I headed off to Sydney for our weekend workshop with Kellie Wulfsohn. For two days we were all head down, trying to master the various techniques Kellie has perfected. We were so busy none of us had much time to take photographs.
On the Saturday morning Kellie explained how she came to making her style of quilts. Such a pleasure to be able to see Kellie's quilt up close. Her imagination is endless. Kellie showed us how she does raw-edge applique, then it was our turn to start our raw-edge applique preparation and the afternoon was spent appliqueing our cushion tops and trying to stitch our branches - sewing over the top of our original free-motion sewing is not easy.
Saturday night a group of us had dinner at a nearby Thai restaurant - lovely food and company.
Final photo of Corrie and Kellie in front of "Alphabet Soup" (one of Kellie's newer designs, which we had to buy along with a couple of other goodies).
I looked forward to this workshop for so long and it was terrific. I was lucky that Karen was able to come along at short notice - we had a fantastic time, met some lovely ladies and came away with some new skills (well, they may be skills after hours and hours of practice). Kellie is a fabulous quilter, innovator and teacher - her ideas are brilliant. She has a knack for making our quilting life simpler.
