Margaret Mew - Quilt Station  Sharing my ❤️ of Repro Quilts & how to create them ✂️Quilt Designer, Travelling Teacher & Author of Quilts from the Colonies published by Quiltmania

Heading home and reflecting on the wonderful few days at Anni’s @hatchedandpatched in Bathurst ❤️ .
.
Two days of workshops, and all that it involves ... friendship and learning, stitching and fun .
Thank you Anni and all the ladies who came to the classes, and a huge shout out to @helenschwabcouture and Mike for your beautiful hospitality ❤️

Kitchen table covered in squares of fabric ... again.(The man about the house would say “still” but I care not 😑) .

Kit prepping for Nantes (merci beaucoup @alpalgardner for all your help yesterday❤️) .

Oh what fun I’m having 👏👏 I’m making kits for Pour L’amour du Fil next month in Nantes. This one is for the Wildflower Cushion .
.
In this class you’ll learn Back-Basting Appliqué and I’ll have the background fabric pre-marked for you for maximum stitching time in class ❤️ .
.
For now though, I’m sorting fabrics. So many of my favourite reproduction fabrics are selected, ready for cutting the kits. ✂️ .
.
I kid you not, there many very early pieces here from my own stash ❤️.
.
Don’t have need for a cushion? It could be the centre of a gorgeous new quilt .
.
Check @pourlamourdufil website for details, I’d love to see you there xx

Not masses of work going on here... the heat came back 😞Saturday night and just piecing some little Le Moyne stars

Have you gotten yourself to @gippsbearycottage yet to check out the store in Gippsland? In Victoria, repro shops are spread far and wide and this one’s a corker 👌.
.
Thank you to the superb team at @gippsbearycottage (Trudy, Tina & Cindy ❤️) and the wonderful & eager students who joined me in classes here these last couple of days . You all rocked 🙌
.
We have dates locked in for classes in September, dates up soon on my website .
.
A big shout out to @nyemeredith for being the hostess with the mostest, it’s been a lovely few days thank you for looking after me so well 😊 .

What a top weekend I’ve had, and it’s not even over

Happy 30th birthday to this little guy @dylanmew ❤️ #whenyourkitten 😁🙌😁#hasthesamecolourhair

Circle Love 💕
Fabric Love 💕

Isn’t it a good feeling to be stitching together the last pieces of a long border ❤️ #merrowcroftquilt #reproductionquilt #medallionquilts #reproductionfabrics #create #slowstitching #handpiecing #quiltstation #margaretmew

I like 🤩

Maisie found a little stack of quilts... the one on top she hadn’t seen before, so you know how it works 😻🐾🐾🐾🐾🐾 .

We’ve had many pets over the years... but three (Speedy goat # 2 , our darling doggie Rollo and Maisie the wonder cat) all cleverly avoided snake bites and stayed with us until their geriatric years .
*
*
Maisie is all we have left now, she’ll be 21 this year. I’m always happy when she’s come out the end of another winter, and wonder if it will be her last .
*
*
This summer has been a bit savage but she’s survived that ... even had fans on her during the scorching hot days so she doesn’t overheat... well she is very fluffy !
*
*
For now she’s spoilt rotten, has her pick of beds and quilts (of course I make inaccessible anything I •really• don’t want her near).

Thank you to the Geelong Patchwork Guild for inviting me along to your meeting today ❤️ I had a lovely time showing off my quilts and talking about fabric and design. Thank you too to @diannabelles for keeping me company on the road ❤️ #quilts #reproductionquilts #reproductionfabrics #quiltdesign #create #slowstitching #quiltstation #margaretmew
