Margaret Sampson George workshop quilts, 2013 -

In 2013 and 2014 we did two workshops with Margaret Sampson George, focussed on two of her designs, the Jane Pizar medallion and the Not the Levens Hall quilt. These are hand pieced, appliqued and quilted works, with intricate, small pieces - not a fast process.

The second workshop was on adding borders, and choosing fabric for borders. Holding it at Cottage Quiltworks in Warriewood was a great help! Several quilters have continued with monthly classes at Cottage Quiltworks, building up their borders under Margaret's guidance.

More quilts from the initial workshop are still in progress.

Helen Battellino finished her long term hexagon project,
brought together in Margaret Sampson George style with a
variety of borders using many prints and techniques.
Jo-Ann Phillips
My Happy Place, made by Miriam Jones was the runner up
Viewers' Choice at our 2016 Quilt Show.
Georgie Patrickson chose Margaret's 'Jane Pizar' design as
her centre medallion, and worked on borders for two more 

years. She is now more than half way through hand quilting.
Sue Crowe added borders to her teacups medallion under
Margaret's guidance, and is now hand quilting it.

Elsa Kachwalla's first finished quilt, started in Margaret Sampson
George's 2013 workshop, and finished in 2014 - not the easiest
design to choose for your very first quilt!
Phyl Willets's quilt started as the little pink block in the
centre and grew from Margaret's borders workshop
- Phyl says it now fully 'Margrified'
