Louise has found the perfect set of mixed tiles for her kitchen splash back – so many quilting ideas!

20160405-095136.jpgHelen has finished appliquéing and sashing her “Pseudo Baltimore” blocks

20160405-095306.jpgShe’s now trying to decide whether to continue with her candlewick blocks

20160405-095554.jpgKaren has finished quilting this quilt

20160405-095724.jpgKaren also had these gorgeous fabrics for show and tell

20160405-095753.jpgPoor Louise only had this much to crochet, but only this much yarn left!

    I could easily cuddle up in Karen’s sweet quilt. It’s the quilt that once you see it you want to go right home and make one. Love it!

    Afternoon tea certainly looks scrummy, (yours always does) and I’m sure those tiles will be inspiration for several quilts.
    ps I just noticed on your sidebar about The Dressmaker, the novel that the film is based on was written by Rosalie Ham, there are at least 7 more novels titled The Dressmaker.

  3. Another great post! You have such a talented group, so many different things going on. I love Helen’s pretty pink stars – I would stick with them, they look so lovely.

    Hi Meredithe, Do you access Instragram? I used to look at Twitter every night after work, but now I look at Instragram – no reading required and lots of lovely pictures! Instragram is an app for the smart phone and a slight variation for the iPad (I like the iPad as the pictures are bigger). Anyway after that rambling introduction the tiles put me in mind of a lovely instragram account called Ihavethisthingwithfloors – Its as much about the shoes of the photographer as the marvelous floors similar to the lovey tiles.
    Thanks again for an inspiring post – your friends are inspiring. Kelly

    Fun fabric times!! I’m a huge fan of patterned tiles, they’re like quilts on floors and walls.

    Wow so many amazing and inspiring projects happening – they always give me so many ‘I would love to do that’ ideas. I love reading your posts. The kitchen tiles are amazing and certainly do look like something to quilt!

  7. There is so much in this post, I don’t know what to comment on!! But the stand-out is Sue’s Mum’s lap quilt. The fabrics are beautiful!! Miss Helen’s stars are lovely – I would add the candlewick ones. The tiles are super,definitely good quilty ideas there! I can sympathise with running out of yarn – it happened to me on a recent knitted baby blanket – fortunately I always leave a long tail when I cast on, and had just enough to join into knit the last few stitches!
    As for the food …….

    Looks like another FUN day of stitching. I LOVE that scrappy quilt — I’d love to make one too. Although, you know, it wouldn’t make a dent in our stashes LOL!

  9. I can see that splashback being parent to a whole host of quilts – they might even make a dent in someone’s stash….

Thank you for taking the time to comment - reading them makes my day!
