I have so much to show and tell!! Where will I start?
I met Fay in real life (do you remember she named my Eureka Chain quilt?), and Frou too!! What a lovely surprise to meet friends who say "I am Zen of Needle" or "I am Fay, I read your blog!".
I finished a quilt, and started another one!!! LOL!! Well, that's my way. Finish something so I can start something new!!
This is the Joy Of Life quilt (designed by Rosalie Quinlan during her cancer treatment - so it is very pink!). I pieced and appliqued the top in 2007. Mum just quilted it for me. The applique is outline quilted, then surrounded by freehand hearts and swirls. A feathered border completes the quilting.
Ok, that's the something "old". Now for something new!!
I bought a "Paris Holiday" panel and cut out some of the blocks. There are 15 blocks in the panel, I am using 10 in my quilt (there are some left over for a bag or two! Fun!!).
That's me on the left - all the way to Paris to buy fabric!!
It's very pink, so I wanted to churn it up a little.
I have nearly finished the quilting, but I want something to show you tomorrow!! So you will have to wait to see more!
The Ballan quilt show is on in March and the theme is France - so I might enter it in their display just for fun. Perhaps it will inspire others to be a bit whimsical! It's been a while since I made something whimsical. Have I showed you my North Pole quilt? Some other time perhaps!!
What am I working on? Here is the list of five:
- Paris holiday
- Christmas mice (just found it again, and am in the mood to finish it)
- Jo Morton Little quilt (a new start, to show you later)
- 1950s stitcheries - only 2 blocks to go before I design then make the quilt
- friendship block for a friend (it's a secret!)
What will I finish next???
