Bernie Wetz - Helped enormously by the beginners class. It’s my best piece of work I have completed thanks to Philippa’s excellent tuition. Thank you I have learnt so much.

Chrystalla Slawinski - This is my sample from the precision piecing class and have made several and will eventually make a quilt from them.

Anne Cresswell - Cushion for my granddaughter, learnt so much from Philippa’s wonderful tutorials.
Ellen Suttie - I have enjoyed all the classes but loved my first attempt at foundation piecing. Was so pleased with the block that I added a border and piping to make a cushion cover following Philippa‘s excellent lessons.
Val ward - This is my first quilt and I used Philippa’s beginners class and precision piecing to complete. It is a gift for one of my grandchildren. Thanks Philippa for your sharing your skills.
Susan Rowe - I attach a pic of a quilt I did when I first began with QQT. It was fun to make and reflects the South Coast where we live.
Glenys O'Shea - I would like you to see the circles I have recently sewn using Philippa’s teaching. They are not perfect but I am quite happy with them. The template I had to use was bigger than those in the circles pouch so I improvised. Like everything, I learned from my mistakes.
Juliet Harris - Happy heart class. I thoroughly enjoyed this class and the template remains stuck on my wall as a reminder to have another go!
Janet Finke - This is the quilt I made for the Beginner's class (also a pillow and pretend, kid-sized potholders)
Janet Finke - one of the blocks from Precision Piecing that is set to become a pillow for the grandkids. I am learning so much with each class and am enormously grateful for all of your work to share electronically.
Christine Chapman - I have forwarded this small example of some trapunto work. I have managed this after Phillipa's lesson of trapunto work in the quilters question time 12 months of lessons. I did enjoy making this and your trapunto lesson
Eileen Mather - 2 pictures of my cushions which would not have been anywhere near as good without Phillippa's classes. I am very proud of them and visitors always comment on them.I used the fpp for the pineapple block and applique for the dresdon plate. All blocks used techniques from the classes.
Shirley Maddocks - Attaching photo of my quilt made during Philippa’s beginners quilt course
Susan Corbett - Here is my Beginners Quilt in which I have also used techniques from the Piping and Binding class together with Mitred Borders. Thanks, Philippa, for proving we are never too experienced (or old) to learn new ways of doing things and improving our skills!
Linda Chipman - I purchased this quilt as a kit about 2 1/2 years ago. I had very little quilting experience (about 40+ years ago). I do sew, but not quilt. When I received the package I immediately thought I had bit off more than I can chew. I opened it several times but was terrified to even cut the fabric. Then I found Philippa’s classes. I started with the 1/2 square triangles and then put them together into the pinwheel blocks. Then I waited for the paper piecing instructions and tackled the pointed arches. Next I tackled the curved piecing. I also put a couple of colourful columns on the back using leftover fabric from the front. I was not brave enough to FMQ it and I sent it out to a long armer. I just have the binding left to do now. I would never have been able to accomplish this without the wonderful detailed instruction. I am practicing FMQ and am going to attempt to quilt an I Spy for my granddaughter. Thank you Philippa and David for such well presented classes. I enjoyed each and every one!
Doris Redmond - Class on cording on cushions with zipper .
Christine Ware - My image shows my first ever quilt using Philippa's techniques from the Beginners' class. I'm about to square up and hope to get the binding on and finish so I can move on to the next class.
Belinda Hyland - Here is my favourite precision piecing sample from Philippa’s class. I spent ages choosing the fabrics and I was delighted with the outcome.
Carol Ziemba - My very first quilting experience from the Beginner’s Class and I am hooked!
Jean Brown - Here's a photo of the sample I did after your first lesson. I'm really enjoying your course and you're certainly helping me attain a better 'perfection' - which really pleases me! So thank you very much.
Sandra Humphries - My Happy Heart completed into a cushion cover following Philippa's classes. I've even done a little bit of appliqué on it.
Kim Fricker - I attach a photo which shows my first ever trapunto work, with my first try at free motion quilting as well, after doing Philippa's classes on both, using her template for the design. I hang it proudly on my wall at home.
Mary Gilbert - This is my Happy hearts project for the gallery for the book draw. I really enjoyed this and have used the curved piecing skills on another project.
Lis Dawson - So far so good, now on to border, quilting and piping.I love the classes but get distracted too often, so have to go back over the instructions again and again.This time I am determined to finish although it is only a small wall hanging.
Susan Hockley - Still have to trim, square and do the the binding, but I'm getting there!
