Stash Bash Sewing Party

We had our first ever Stash Bash Sewing Party on Saturday. The workshop is based around one block that make four different quilts. The quilt  that everyone decided to make was the Catch Me if you Dare quilt which features on the cover of the booklet.

The pattern booklet and fabric pack are available at a special price until midnight Monday 14th March (Adelaide time). The pattern booklet is available in PDF format and Paper format. This way everyone is covered.
The Sewing Party went down a treat. Everyone was eager to learn and sew. That made my job easier.
I was really nervous about how the workshop was going to go but in the end it was a party with lots of fun. Lots of blocks were made. Mandy and Lisa completed their 72 blocks each and pieced together in their windmill blocks with Julie at 35 blocks getting her half way through her blocks.

Lisa and Julie are make theirs with the La Vie Boheme fabric pack and Mandy is using the Dazzling Blues fabric range which she has been looking for a special project, so she could cut into it. Now there is some Dazzling Blue fabrics left in store and I can make up some Stash Bash Sewing Party fabric packs up if everyone is interested. Just let me know. 


Plus we even had some fun playing a few hands of Calendar Bingo after lunch. A customer favourite these days and there was prizes for the winners.

On Sunday I have the Diamonds in the Breeze quilt been made in the workshop. This is a slightly harder project, only in in the fact it has two blocks in it but still they are made from the same block but the fabrics are in different places in one block. Plus a lot more blocks to be made. Now this one hasn't been made yet, so I am looking forward to seeing this one come together.
I will try and take a few more photos today. I was too busy in Saturday workshop teaching and helping that taking photos didn't cross my mind but at least I did get a picture of their first completed windmill block.
I will run this workshop again later in the year so if you couldn't make this weekend workshops,  let me know what dates would suit and I will see if I can arrange another Stash Bash Sewing Party sooner than later.
Until Next Time 
Keep Stitching
