Challenge Accepted

As you know it was Apatchy Quilting’s 10th birthday last month and we certainly celebrated in style. Before I show you the amazing creations for the challenge let me show you what’s been happening in the classes. Naturally there are new quilts for show and tell and here they are –  Jane has become an expert at making these peanut cushions, so much so that she receives numerous requests. This was a more masculine version… Continue Reading

Winner’s Circle

It’s been a while since we last spoke and much has transpired. Last time I told you about the Elvis quilt being featured in the Quilts Inc catalogue. Well the postie finally brought the parcel with the book! and look who featured on the Table of Contents page –  If you want to read what I wrote, the book is available on Booktopia  or from Angus and Robertson Online. After all that excitement we still had a few classes… Continue Reading

I’m All Shook Up

Ok the big news first…shameless self-promotion follows….. as you know I was asked to make an Elvis quilt for inclusion in the book ‘Inspired by Elvis’. This quilt was finished and sent off to the other side of the world in December 2016 but I wasn’t allowed to shown anyone until the book was published. So the first news is that the book has been published and is available on Booktopia  or from Angus and… Continue Reading

Long days, short years

Another month has passed us by and I hope you achieved a lot on your UFO number 8. Personally I was still working on the previous month’s project but I am making headway – albeit slowly. I have much to share with you this month as the Apatcheez have been their usual prolific selves – an inspiration that’s for sure. Our classes have been a little quite lately because many are off on holidays and… Continue Reading

UFO of the Month

Hello everyone   I hope you’re enjoying your easter break and getting stuck into that sewing. We have a new month and so a new UFO to work on. Ger out your list and check last month’s progress off because this month the progress will be on UFO number…… Yes it’s number 8 – so you have a month to sink that project – and two more days of full time sewing to get a… Continue Reading

…and the UFO to work on this month is…

Yes another month has gone by and hopefully you are well into last month’s project. If not you’ll have to work on it at the same time as this next one. Many of the Apatcheez have organised their UFO’s into a list and are working their way through that list – have a look here at this blog post if you’re not sure what I mean. The new number has been drawn but before I tell you… Continue Reading

Another UFO down

It was great to see so many people at classes this week including a couple of new faces. Everyone was very busy on their projects and many took my advice from the last blog post and tried to organise their UFO list for the year. Rather than wait for the APQ site to determine our fate we decided, at the Wednesday class, to draw our own monthly numbers (and get the jump on America by 24 hours!)…. Continue Reading

Super Summer Sale!

I mentioned in the last blog that, if you had trouble organising your UFO’s for this year you might like to join the 2018 APQ Challenge. The idea is that you number your UFOs from one to twelve. (If you have more than twelve you may need additional help – try adding more than one project to each number but remember that you have to work on more than one project each month if you do… Continue Reading

Welcome to 2018!

Welcome to 2018 at Apatchy Quilting! I guess everyone has taken Christmas down and the lights have been packed away for another year and those of us who have school-age children are getting organised for back-to-school. In Brisbane we have been sweltering while our stitching sisters in the northern hemisphere have been freezing their proverbials. This means that it’s a great time to turn on the air con (or heater if you’re in the northern hemisphere)… Continue Reading
