Welcome! This is where I will be continually adding updates about my latest Angles quilts, me and my new life as all of them unfold.

I am so very much looking forward to teaching Angles Workshops again. My computer is full of designs just itching to be 'made real'.

My classes are fun-filled, creative and relaxed. Both my students and I have so much fun and knowing that this is where I am meant to be to fulfils my life passion of teaching and sharing lots of tips and ideas, it feels so right.

Check back for regular updates on classes, the variety of designs I'm working on and much much more. I will be uploading a free Angles project shortly.

Go have a look at my new web page – it’s been freshly re-vamped and has been given a whole new look -

Stay tuned for more as I update my web page with the full Class List

Love and Hugs

For someone who does not celebrate Christmas, I am going to be SO busy next week.  Lots of big things (for me anyway) are happening.  I have had a lot of fun creating the 2 table runners below for 2 very dear ladies who have helped me immensly in the last few months.  They do do Christmas so using up the last of some classy Christmas Fabric Angles blocks, I finally decided on this layout to stitch together for one of the presents.

As you know with Anjii's Angles, there are MANY variations - these are the ones I could have chosen .....

The 2nd Table Runner needed some more Angle units made so I scrounged through my fabric and found a gorgeous goldy crackle number that worked perfectly. This Runner is bigger and I even had some left over units for 2 small placemats.

Thanks for looking - check again next week.  I hopefully will have my new web page launched and a new look blog with a BIG announcement.

Cheers all

Well it's still Friday in Adelaide vbg Last week I helped Cyndy, a long time quilting friend of mine, layout an Angles quilt that she began at a workshop I taught a while back. Most workshops will have one student who wants to make a bigger quilt than the class sample. The quilt I was teaching was "Prizmatic" but Cyndy wanted a quilt for her QS Bed so she bought 4 times the amount of fabric on the requirements list plus a fudge factor!! Those who have taken an Anjii's Angles workshop with me, know first hand the design potential of the Angle units and how many quilt designs are possible by simple twist here or turn there!! I love it when students create thier own quilts from the class sample - there's no desire on my part to have clones of my quilts - ever.!!

Well these are a few of the options Cyndy and I came up with for her quilt. Keep in mind that this in only half her quilt but you can see how 4 of these will create a very stunning quilt that as I said to Cyndy, 'I was prepared to change my bedroom curtains for it' if she didn't like it once it was finished!!!

The photos don't quite do the quilt justice - it's a very deep and sultry collection of fabrics in burgandies, soft lettuce green and dusky pinks

The above layout, kept the dark squares of the four patches crossing diagonally with the dark burgandy Angle units forming a loop-de-loop with little pointy ears - don't you love my ability to descirbe so creatively what's in my head - be worried, very worried!!!! The above version still has the loop-de-loop but I turned the units alongside the diagonal 4 patches. This version is the same as the first example but with the 4 patches all turned so that the green forms the diagonal. This brings a star into the centre of each quarter and also there will be a star in the centre of the quilt plus on the compass points into the border which she has decided to piece with rectangles filling in the gaps like on Prizmatic has with the half square triangles. This has been a fantastic big step back into Angling and quite honestly, I couldn't wait for her to come over and take it off my design wall so that I could start with a quilt myself. Well, I'm off for some beauty sleep as it's past midnight. Goodnight cyber-world - sweet dreams
Hi all WOW - comments and followers ! Thank you for all the support ... how blessed am I to have such wonderful friends. Thank you again. I uploaded or is it downloaded (?) photos off my camera from my weekend in Sydney. Of course no photos of me, only the fabulous views around the Harbour from the ferries I jumped on and off of for 3 hours and relaxing around the Rocks. Can you see the climbers right at the top of the Sydney Harbour Bridge aka The Coathanger? Click on the photo for a larger version - hope it's not too big and slow to load.... let me know if it is and I'll downsize it (after I work out how to :) ) I know it's been said many times by locals and tourists alike - the Sydney Opera House is a truly awesome building from all Angles (pardon the pun)

The most amazing high speed jet boats were looping around the ferries along with a Pirate Ship !!! LOL
I have finally made it into the blogging world the easiest way possible. Other programmes which I thought I wanted to use were a brain drain. I'm quickly going to publish this post as it is as there are very dark clouds circling like yesterday when the power went off for 5 hours after a huge clap or two of thunder. Cheers everyone Hugs Anjii
