Carpenter's Star Workshop - Renmark

Last weekend I taught a Carpenter's Star workshop at Riverland Quilting Supplies in Renmark.  I had a great time with 14 wonderful ladies and Leah the shop owner.  It was just the break that I needed after a long week in which everything seemed to go wrong and finished with my son throwing my iphone in the bath. 

It was so nice to be welcomed by Leah and her family in her lovely shop.  Saturday night I took myself out for a hot date to the motel restaurant where I experienced the novelty of eating my meal without coaching anyone to have "just two more bites" and then I was in bed, asleep by 8.30pm.  I think it was one of the best dates I've ever been on!

On Sunday we had the workshop using Debby Maddy's Carpenter's Star pattern.  My love affair with the Carpenter's star has been well documented and you can read more about it here, here and here

Girls hard at it!

This group of ladies came ready to work and by the end of the day they had these beauties to show for their labours.  One lady, Alison, even had her top completed - what a star!  I know you're not supposed to have favourites - but I do, and it's Pam's, the third quilt in the second row.

Unfortunately, I only remembered to take photos after several ladies had already laid their quilts out in rows and had packed them back up again.  So sorry to those who don't have a photo.

I am really looking forward to going back in March.  This time I might even go wild and take myself out to the movies!


  1. My favourite would be the first one - pink and black of course. Hope you have a better week. We are staying at a lovely hotel and internet has been poor so I am making the most of it as it has just appeared.

  2. Oh no! iPhones don't swim!!! (As I know from personal experience!) Sounds like a marvellous weekend. An excellent blueprint in fact. I think I might have a weekend like that, but without the teaching class bit!

  3. I love the fabrics everyone used in these quilts.

  4. Your very own commitment to getting the message throughout came to be rather powerful and have consistently enabled employees just like me to arrive at their desired goals.
