Bellmont House and more....

Hi everyone, we are very excited to add our new pattern Bellmont House to the blog.

This pattern is a little different for us!
There are 6 small quilts and 6 Canvas works.
Each canvas is a bigger version of the block in a small quilt and is then appliqued, and treasures like old buttons, doilies etc are added. A bit of fun.
We will be teaching Bellmont House for the Essendon Quilters in October!!
See post from May 17 for some close up pics too.

We taught for the lovely Kim at Jukejema Quilting Barn in Nowra last week. It was a great class and the ladies were so friendly. Thanks so much to you all for coming along to spend a day with us. Kim also gave us these lovely bags to remind us of her beautiful part of Australia.

We also had some retail therapy at Jukejema, the Sydney Quilt Show and Quiltsmith.

Here are some of our fabrics that "had to come home"

We have 2 new quilts just about finished so the pattern writing will begin shortly and a third one started.
we will have pics for you as soon as they are ready.

Lisa has also started the Sundial Coverlet from Magic Patch Quilting in Tyabb!!

See now I have told the world I better get moving and keep up or catch up mmm
will post my progress in Instagram for that one as it's so easy to use.
I look organised but..

We are also excited the Lenora from Elm Grove Patchwork is now stocking our patterns. Thanks Lenora!
her details are in our stockists on the right.

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Just a few hours later and Sydney has presented us with a perfect start to our weekend.

And some 6" blocks. 
Lisa is coming over for some creative fun (& a bit more tax stuff).

A night with the Essendon Girls.

We were invited to spend a night with the Essendon Patchworkers last night and we had a ball!!
What a lovely group of ladies.
We were welcomed with this amazing banner......

  We set up our quilts then we had the opportunity to give a talk about
Max & Louise Pattern Co......

They are also having a Quilt show in July. 
Will post details in a few days as I have not unpacked my bag yet!!
Thank you so much girls for making us feel so welcome.

Poor Lou was very sick so Lisa's sister in law Narelle (who is Narelle Louise so an inaugural member of the Louise part!!) came along to help out and did an amazing job.

We are at Magic Patch Quilt shop Tyabb this Saturday for a workshop which we are sure will be a great day and then Waverley Quilt show Sunday.

Thanks for dropping by.

Winter Antics and our newest designs

on Saturday 14th June we are teaching our fourth workshop day with June at Lilly Patches.
Our design includes some work that is definately a little different for us.
We hope you like them.  
June has arranged a different venue this time.  I bigger hall and more natural light, so if you haven't booked in yet, give June a call.

We have six mini quilts and six co-ordinating quilts that are stretched over a canvas.
Here are pictures of what we will be teaching on the day:

June has requirements list's available now.  If you are planning to do any of the projects from the last two photo's there is some homework to do too.

Laurel is also teaching this lovely pillow:

Looking forward to another great day.  We LOVE workshop days.

Until next time,
Lou & Lisa

Winter Antics and upcoming workshops

Yes, we are still around.....I'm sure you'll agree time is flying by....May! Really???? 
Our apologies for not updating our blog sooner.  
We have dates to share with you....

On Saturday 24th May we will be at Pakenham Quilt In for a trunk show type presentation.  We know some ladies from Pakenham Patchworkers and Quilters Group so it will be a great change to catch up and meet new people. 
We will have lots of quilts to share with you and Mrs Martin's Quilt Shop will have our patterns for sale with some starter kits too.

Wednesday May 28th we will be at Essendon Quilters' night meeting with quilts to show and patterns for sale....and yes.... we are going to be talking to these wonderful ladies..... a daunting thought as we are not confident public speakers!  wish us luck....

Saturday May 31st we are at Magic Patch Quilting in Tyabb.  We are having a workshop with Airlie & Cranbrook patterns.  You get to choose which of the patterns you work on on the day.  If you give Carol a call, she can let you know if there is any space left.  

Sunday May 1st we will be at the Waverley Quilt Show, always a great show with wonderful shops selling their wares.

If you haven't bought a raffle ticket for this quilt, they are still available at @2 each.  I know June at Lilly Patches has tickets for sale.

We hope to see you VERY soon at one of these events or at our regular classes at Lilly Patches.
