Join the Journey – 02

I wanted to make a pieced quilt, and quilt it using rulers, in particular with the Westalee quilting rulers – on a domestic sewing machine! Leonie West is inspiring with her passion for the possibilities of her latest creations, and the YouTube videos are so encouraging, it became obvious I just had to do it. After successfully using the Westalee rulers on smaller projects, this would be a welcome step on my personal adventures with quilting.

As a teacher, it was natural to think ‘why not see if other patch workers would also come along and learn. Hence, ‘Join the Journey’ came into fruition.


Join the Journey – 01

watermarked(2018-01-02-1224)Meet Gerry!


’G’day! Happy New Year, and nice to meet you. I’ve just arrived here – been recently adopted into RobynsPatch and I’m finding my way around and settling in. From what I can see so far, it’s a bit slack, not much going on at all. Think I’ll have to do something about that otherwise it could get very lonely here. So I’ve put on my stern look, wagged a paw and done the hard stare!

So what am I sitting on, you ask! Well it’s a block. No not chocolate – although I’m led to believe there’s a penchant for some of that stuff around here – it seems to be a patchwork block of some sort.

When I’ve sussed it out a bit, I’ll get back to you on what it’s supposed to be. Time to have a poke around and get things happening!

See ya later!
