Welcome to Apatchy Quilting Blog

Another week in paradise

Weeks are flying by as we all react to these changing circumstances in our own way. Some silly people are cleaning out their cupboards but most of the Apatcheez are taking advantage of the time by finishing off their UFO’s or perhaps starting new projects. Many have been shared on social media. For those that don’t have Facebook or other platforms I thought you might like to have a look at some of the recent… Continue Reading

Coronavirus

There has been some confusion over recent days regarding our classes. I have been following the Coronavirus updates closely and, at this stage, classes will continue. In light of the growing public-health concern, and in an effort to prioritize our health and wellness, I would ask that anyone who feels sick to please refrain from coming to Apatchy until you are sure all of your symptoms are completely gone. While here we will practise good… 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

…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

Heather’s Memorial Service

I just wanted to let you know that Heather‘s daughter Tanya has contacted me and advised that there will be a memorial service held for her mum at 3.00pm on Thursday the 24 August at Albany Creek Memorial Gardens, 400 Creek Road, Bridgeman Downs. I’m sure I will see many of you at classes over the next two days but I wanted to let you know prior to that so you could flag the date and time.

Sad News

 Many of you will be shocked and saddened to hear that our lovely sewing sister Heather Hardy passed away today after suffering a heart attack on Friday. It is hard to believe that we won’t see Heather’s smiling face again. She had eyes that lit up with laughter. She was a great friend to Apatchy Quilting and had been here from the beginning.  As well she was a friend to many at Apatchy and was… Continue Reading

Bowie on Parade

Hello everyone. Long time no hear. I almost had a post ready last week when the computer screen went black. It was returned to me today and apparently there was no fault – it must have wanted the weekend off. Anyway I am not quite ready with the next post but wanted to share some news with you all, especially as I won’t see the Wednesday girls tomorrow because of the public holiday here. So…….

Winter is for Quilting

Although we don’t care too much about the weather, June in Brisbane is always a great time to get stuck into a project and to start to work on that winter quilting programme. The fierce heat of summer is but a memory and the cooler weather starts to seep in. Sure we don’t see the beautiful snowy landscapes that a colder climate might enjoy, but as soon as the thermometer dips below 240 you see… Continue Reading

April = Awesome

April is always a good month for quilting here in Brisbane because the temperatures finally start to cool after the furnace of summer. It’s often the time when many new fabric ranges are unveiled and also it’s a great time to have a quilt show. This April we have the lot. As the cooler weather started the postman became very busy carrying in large boxes of fabrics. One that I wanted to show you is… Continue Reading

News from the frontline

Fame is all very well but it does mean you have extra work to do. I found this out after the success of the Bowie Quilt. I mentioned in the last blog that he had managed to score a front page position and two-page spread in the latest Down Under Quilts magazine and I believe this particular issue sold out in many newsagents around Brisbane. One of my friends had to travel to Buderim to… Continue Reading
