I haven't written on my blog for such a long time, but it doesn't mean I have been sitting idle.

The young girls I made quilts for loved them I was told, which is wonderful.

I have been to sit and sew days with the Melbourne Modern Quilt Guild, and have been sewing quilts "inch by inch".

I am participating in the 2012 Designer Mystery Block of the Month through the Fat Quarter Shop - 4 blocks down 8 blocks to go. I look forward to this envelope arriving each month, and am enjoying making these blocks.

Next month on 17 November, I will be spending the day at Treehouse Textiles and am certainly looking forward to visiting this delightful venue.

Good Intentions

What do they say about streets being paved with good intentions. Well that is me. It is 12 months since my last post and where did that time go?

I really don't know how people keep their blogs so up to date, not only with words, but photos as well, and sewing. Where do they find the time? Or am I just lazy?

Although I certainly don't feel that I have been lazy. I have made more quilt tops and actually quilted two of my own quilts. Mind you they were small and manageable. I really don't think I could do a single size quilt, let alone a double or larger size on my domestic sewing machine.

I have made two quilts for two small girls. They are the nieces of a co-worker - same fabric "sherbet pips" - slightly different patterns and colour ways. Am waiting to collect the second one from my girlfriend who is quilting it for me, then all I have to do is sew on the binding and give them to Nicky when she returns from her honeymoon. I hope everyone likes them.
