I have given up my job at the shop so that I have more time for designing new quilts and producing new patterns. Friends and fellow quilters were disappointed to find that I had no quilts entered in our 2011 Adelaide exhibition. This was simply because I hadn't had time to finish any. I have also had the honor of being invited to enter the Master Quilter categories in the 2012 Sydney quilt show and so I need time to create quilts for this.
David and I attended the trade market in Melbourne in November which was very inspirational. I was given a lot of helpful advice from stallholders which I will put to good use in expanding my pattern business. Watch my blog to follow my progress in the new year.
