A work shop with Kellie

On the weekend I went to a workshop with Kellie from "Don't Look Now" at Hettie's Patch(head over there for some more photos). I didn't actually take part in the work shop I was number 2 helper. Karen who I forgot to make a name badge for was number 1(sorry a 100 times over Karen).

To see Kellie's work up close was fantastic.

I loved this little pillow which I might give a try as I had my eyes and ears open while I was helping. I have plans for it other than a pillow.

Karen who I forgot to make a name badge for(can you tell I'm really sorry), has been hand appliqueing one of Kellie's quilts. It looks fantastic.

I am so green! I suppose I could fly over to SA again to attend a workshop but it would be so wonderful if she'd come to NSW.

It looks like you had a perfect weekend! How wonderful, that you were allowed to help and be a big part of this! Loved the photo's on the other blogs too!

That is the most amazing quilts I've ever seen.
Actually I've never seen anything like it before - not in Denmark, anyway. Or maybe I'm not enough "into quilting".
I'm so impressed! Must have taken forever to make these things.

But... what's with the gloves??? Puzzled me.

Thanks for sharing this. I'm SO inspired, even though I think I'll never have time to do anything like it myself.

Beautiful work all around!!

Lorraine said...

it was an awesome weekend.....Kellie is such a talent...and to have the opportunity to attend a two day workshop was fantastic! Well done to Lorraine and the helpers....!

I'm thinking that now if you make her a batch of "name tags"... in all sorts of shapes, sizes, colors..... she won't have any reason any more to give you a hard time! If you make a whole bunch... and then each time you see her... give her a new one! After a while she will have to forgive you right? LoL....
The quilts are wonderful! Just beautiful! Not so sure that I have that much patience!
Congrats on your new machine! Kind of like a new member to the family right? Did you name it?
