Second one’s done
Anne Maree has been having fun with hexagons
Jane has finished her quilt!
My “Alice” quilt just needs a final fabric border (and I need a clear 30 minutes to get it cut and sewn on!), and I’m missing the hand piecing. So I dug out a quilt I started with Margaret Sampson George and with the pieces all cut out (did that at Millrose earlier in the year) it’s been easy to get the first one finished……
As requested, here’s a pic of the red cyclamen
Back to the sewing……….
I just need to remember where I put the background for these blocks……..I’ve found the photo I took during the class with MSG so I know what I’m looking for……..just need to……lay……my hands……on it……..(still searching……..)
I was the hostess for Stitch Sisters on Saturday, and a quick trip to Aldi yielded a quite nice arvo tea
Kaye has the next border on her Katrina Hadjimichael quilt
You know I’m a sucker for a squishy parcel and there’s been a few arrive over the last week and a half. Firstly a very special one from Carrolyn, one of my readers from the USA
The next Liberty fabric instalment has arrived from Amitie
and another posting from Treehouse
For those of you not Aussies (or of my generation), we used this to learn about Australia; tracing around it and marking in the states, capital cities, rivers etc. Having been born in Tasmania (of Victorian parents I hasten to add!) I was alway indignant of the note that Tasmania was “to be drawn free hand”. Just ‘cos Tassie’s “offshore” from “the mainland” couldn’t they have had a little joiner holding the Island State in place?? For those who don’t know, Tasmania lives just below “Vic” or Victoria. (Just looking at it, the ACT – Australian Capital Territory where Australia’s capital city is located – doesn’t rate a mention at all!!)
Pearl has returned from a trip to Europe bringing with her fabrics purchased in Edinburgh (blues on the left) and Amsterdam – in a gorgeous bag to boot
Josephine has just two stars to finish for the next border of her quilt
Lorraine is steaming ahead with her “Briar Hill”; more blocks made
Now, is anyone interested in doing a Quilt-along with “Briar Hill”? It’s nice easy piecing, either by hand or EPP and choice of fabrics is optional; you can see Lorraine is using pretties, Sue 1 is using brights, as will I be, and Josephine is so excited as her son is visiting Liberty, yes, that’s Liberty in London, and is bringing her back some Liberty fabrics for her version. What do you think? Care to join in?
