This has so far been a very productive week. I have nearly finished a new pieced and appliqued quilt . Sorry no photos yet.
Ive designed 2 new applique quilts and packed my mum off with bundle of fabrics to get started. I go through periods of when I design many quilts within a small amount of time, but the problem is them making it into fabric. Luckily I have a great group of family and friends that are more than eager to make them for me.
If I ever win tatts lotto I will buy myself more time.
Today was the Melbourne Cup and we had a lovley chicken and salad lunch out on the front lawn of the shop. For those overseas, this is the biggest horse race in Australia and it literally stops the nation. Leonie spoiled us with nibbles before and sparkling apple juice to wash it all down, and of course we had to speak with our posh voices. The kids would have been suitably embarassed. I didnt bother putting a bet on and I'm glad, the horse I would have chosen came somewhere at the back. Sorry no photos , I was giddy on sugar.
This is a quilt I saw on Ebay some time ago and thought this would be a great one to make with all my orphan blocks, mine dont seam to be all co-ordinating like this one. Mine are a mix of country, civil war, pretty, 1930. so I dont think mine would turn out as well. I'll just have to admire this one then.
