I have been very neglectful of late, but we tend to have busy lives and forget to pay attention to somethings. So I need to make it up.
I have finished another block in the Gail Pan Berries and Bluebirds. I’m very happy with it. Redoing some of the berries has made the blocks look much better and I’m more happy with it.
I spent sometime finishing a quilt as you go quilt that I hadn’t finished. I was very happy with it and it now is on my bed. My puppies love this new quilt and when I can’t find them, I am sure to find them on the bed. I notice that a lot of animals tend to love quilts too.
I have also been doing another quilt. Isn’t funny how when you use a pattern and make the quilt, you really don’t know how big it is until you put it on your bed. This quilt was to be 80″ by 94″ and it looks very big. I used the moda range Chantilly by Lauren and Jessica Jung with a royal blue used as a contrast colour. It was done using mainly a jelly roll and layer cake with very little scraps. I have made it my son’s friend – hope they like it when it is finished.
I also attended a day class with Helen Stubbing from Hugs ‘n’ Kisses and Rosaline Quinlan for their Stitching, through Sew Bright Alpine, at the Maze located at the Wandiligong Maze Café, located just 6kms from Bright. Lots of fun and a great day. The sponge cake was huge. I also got a little look at Helen’s new book which looked very nice.
Well I shall sign off for now and promise that I will keep you up to date with my going ons.
