A few more completions


This was a BOM through the Fat Quarter Shop, done in 1930's fabrics it turned out well and is a nice size for my queen bed.

this one I made for my hairdresser and it was massive, I love how effective an Irish Chain block can be.

this one I also made for my hairdresser, a bit of machine applique and finished it off with some custom quilting on my domestic machine

Foxley Village Completed

 I have had this quilt completed for some time but haven't been able to post a pic to my Blog as I had lost it my Blog that is. Fingers crossed this posts.

A Nature's Journey

 I finished this quilt top in 2015 and it has been waiting patiently to be sent to the quilter, well it's now back and I have just finished stitching down the binding.

Dear Jane 2010-2020

 I started my 1st block in 2010 and today the borders went on, it feels good to see the light at the end of the Dear Jane tunnel. it's been a great quilt to learn from, many different techniques and challenges, right up to the last 'Y' seam for the corner blocks. Now to get the final borders on for the scallop edging and off to the quilter.

Some shopping

As my holiday is drawing to an end and we didn't get a chance to go on out road trip to Melbourne (daughter got a new job) I decided to visit a few of the local patchwork shops.

I bought this kit and backing from Picton Patchwork & Quilting

and this selection because I loved the border fabric

now to go and do some more sewing to justify buying more fabric :)

Vivid Sydney

After all these years that this has been an annual event I decided it was time to check out the light show, Vivid.
It was a lovely mild night down The Rocks/harbour and here are some pics I would like to share, sorry they aren't the best, only taken with my phone.
