Pemberley and Longbourne return to Victor Harbor

I have almost finished piecing my Pemberley quilt and I am in love. This is a truly magnificent quilt if you are happy to be in it for the long haul! It is worth it and will be a family heirloom. I will post photos of my pieced top as soon as it is all together, hopefully this week! Similarly, Longbourne has a place in my heart, Lol, and in my cupboard as a WIP (work in progress). I am well on my way with that one. All of Katrina Hadjimichael’s Jane Austen series quilts are achievable for a confident beginner due to the techniques Katrina uses and the ongoing support she gives through our private Facebook page. Because of their complexity, Katrina does not sell the patterns for her Jane Austen quilts, preferring to pass on the piecing instructions firsthand in the classroom. So, Katrina and I have had a chat as I realised that each year I am offering her latest quilt in this series which means others do not get a chance to make one of her older quilts like Pemberley, Longbourne, Netherfield etc. Yes, the list goes on as there are now eight quilts in this series! To overcome this, Katrina has agreed to teach three quilts in the March retreat, being Pemberley, Longbourne and Lambton. Wow, she is a gem! Bookings are open so scoot across to my retreat booking page to check out the photos and get your booking form and deposit in as places will be snapped up fairly quickly.
