No Photos

My camera and laptop are not talking to each other at 
the moment so I cannot show you what I have been stitching.
But I have been stitching.

Caswell quilt block 8 is done and I have started
block 9

I have taken the plunge with the farmers wife
and begun machine quilting. Quite a task given the 
size of this quilt but little by little 
I will get it done.

The Folly is also getting closer to being a completed quilt.
I just love hand quilting this quilt.

Hopefully photos soon

New Project

The Farmers Wife is pin basted and
waiting to be quilted

I have not decided how I will tackle this yet
It will just have to sit awhile,

That means I need a new project for 
my Thursday sit and sew afternoons

This is what I have chosen
It's a Robyn Falloon quilt from this book.

and I have made a start, pinned in place ready for 
this weeks sewing.

Farmers Wife

I thought it about time to share with you 
 a farmers wife update.

only a few setting triangles to go in
and the border.
I have decided on one large[very large]
border. Between 8 and 10 inches wide with
mitred corners
It will be a very large quilt.

Time to start thinking of the next project.
I like to have something just for my
thursday sewing group.
I have it narrowed down to a couple 
of different ideas, but not fabric has
been cut yet.

2 posts in 1

I need to catch up, no post last week 
so it is a double dose this week.

Firstly and very importantly
I have a little Ta Da


I have started the Caswell Quilt
block A1 is done
only 29 to go
block A2 is prepped and ready to go.

Next onto this weeks post
Saturday I had a day out to the Lang Lang quilt show
I took the scenic tourist route and found a 
fantastic quilt shop on the way at Korumburra.
I think this shop will feature in my future
lots of great reproduction fabrics and some of the
best display quilts ever.

After quite a long time spent in Korumburra
 it was back on the road to find Lang Lang.

An interesting show with lots of traders,
tables and chairs everywhere for people to have
cups of tea and a few quilts.

Of course I have photos of my favourite quilts.

This one has an interesting centre panel,
but the piecing around it was perfect and really
made the quilt.
I think I have a similar panel tucked away somewhere
just waiting for inspiration.

The colours don't show up well but this quilt
 would have won viewer choice for sure.

thirdly not a large quilt but it really appealed to me

now it's time to get back to the next Caswell Quilt block
