Work in progress

 This quilt is based on a design by Lynette Anderson.  I have enlarged the embroidery designs. The originals were a little too small for me to stitch.  I did the stitcheries while we were in Queensland on holidays.  We tend to head north each year in the winter to escape the Adelaide winter.

Packing enough sewing to keep me busy is a real challenge.  More and more storage in the caravan is required for quilting projects each time we go away.  But any excuse to visit quilt stores along the way!!!!

One of my little projects was to make some coasters to match colours in a painting!  They look like eyes all put together!!  I used raw edge appliqué.

Photo posted yesterday is my "star spangled" quilt. Photo quality is poor! Hopefully I'll improve these skills. 

The 1/2" hexie quilt is ready for me to quilt. It is up on the wall waiting for FMQ inspiration,  any ideas out there? 

This small quilt is made using orphan. blocks from star spangled.  Quite cute. They were left over chevron boarder blocks.  Dee

Back home in sewing heaven!

This is my first post.  I have been following a number of blogs for a while and so enjoy it!

I want to use this as keeping a log of my quilting, and to be active and participate in blogging world. 

We have just returned from a 10 week caravan trip. Wow did I take projects with me. I feel I have make millions of 1/2" hexies!  Now I have lots to finish. I will attempt to post some pics soon. 

We spent some time in Queensland and took in some amazing quilt shows in Brisbane and around Brisbane.  A special deviation to Wagga Wagga to see Sam Bowker's showing of work of the tentmakers of Egypt at the uni.  Sooo inspiring!,
