I want to share with everyone a new quilter that is working through Quilters Academy Volume 1 on her own. I found out about her when she let us know she had found the errors on the directions for Townsquare. Lesley bought the book and has been working through it just as we had hoped people would do. Her blog is a diary of her progress, and I am so proud of her!!! She lives in Tasmania, Australia, is brand new to quilting, and is on the final. She can't wait to start to add borders to all the quilt tops - yes, she made them all! - and get to quilting them. Talk about a teachers dream come true in a student! I would encourage everyone to visit her blog and give her a big pat on the back for a job well done. The blog address is: patchnblock.blogspot.com. She has photograph of her step by step progress and her finished tops. You will love the skill improvement you see as she goes, and her insight as she finished each class. Just wanted to tune everyone in to her - how inspiring!


  1. Harriet,

    The ladies of Hamilton Montana are still talking about what a wonderful experience your class was - I believe we could do a two day workshop, with such excitment.
    Received the batting and thread - thank you -

  2. Hi there Harriet and Carrie, this is so exciting! I know your new books will help everyone achieve great things! I've added your blog and Leslie's blog to my "blogs to visit" list. Check out www.gypsyquilterdesigns.blogspot.com to see the latest pictures. The rust/brown double irish chain quilt at the bottom of the ladder was made right after I attended your first class. LOL, where did the years go?
