Mikayla & Danielle
Mikayla and Danielle (my God daughters) have recently embarked on their "patchwork journey". They have traced and stitched several designs and we have "converted" the completed pieces into beautiful cushions. The girls have selected their fabrics and we have spent a couple of days together to complete these beautiful works of art. With 3 sons of my own, it is nice to be able to share my passion with the girls. Yesterday I took them on their first trip to the Melbourne Quilt show at "Jeff's Shed". We had a ball, sitting in on "how to" workshops, some hands on work shops - plenty of shopping and of course admiring all of the beautiful quilts. Both girls are already showing a keen interest to move into making their first quilts and we have already chosen a simple yet effective design. Well done Mikayla and Danielle - "AJ" is very proud of you both.
