Friday Fun

Two giveaways I really have to share although I imagine you have all been there and done that!!
First up, Lynne, over at Lily's Quilts has a stonker of a giveaway, sponsored by Oakshott, 100 fat 1/8s!!
The next giveaway to go have a look at is from my blogpal, Susan, aka Canadian Abroad - Susan tells it like it is and has a great blog.......she is celebrating a year of blogging and you should check out her work from the last year, it's amazing.
So, to celebrate, Susan is giving away some of her precious stash -
Lovely jubbly!
Back in my world of bluepatchquilts, all my classes are heading fast towards the end of session. I usually finish up at Easter and take a break until Christmas in July..ha!
The ladies in the beginner's class have all been following the same quilt plan, but are all turning out beautifully different.
This year, I challenged all the ladies in the non-beginner classes, to choose their own quilt project.
Every year I hold an end of term Open Night and this year I have scheduled it as an Open Day, bigger space, more time, and with cakes!!
And I am beginning to get really excited about it this year because it seems every class I have had over the last 2 weeks, finished quilts are being produced, and oh! what a selection....I am going to keep you all waiting until after the Open Day and then I will share all the wonderful talent.
Just one wee peek at the moment - this quilt has not been done in class, Irene made it at home from my Mystery Quilt a Long..............she made a different one in class!! Isn't it fab.
Have a great weekend everyone.x
