Lil Chickadees

Hello I am sorry I havent posted for a few days but I have been under the weather (another way of saying not feeling well here in Australia).
Today I have a really cute wall hanging for you to check out. This one was made by my friend Helen for her wall in the kitchen. She felt she needed a change from her farmyard quilt,and " a change is as good as a holiday" they say.
You can make this quilt by using two panels from Quilters Bazaar . I quilted it with an all over design in the centre called Lil Chickadees by Anne Bright and a scolloped border in the green border.

Bluebird of Hope

Here is another Quilt aid Quilt from last year with a different finishing kit.I used a feather block that looked like feather triangles in each of the pieced blocks so the applique looks like it is framed in feathers. The applique blocks were all individually quilted with the belts off using different background fills and outlining and frames.This is a beautiful quilt and will be a gift for a very special friend of the quilter.

I am sorry this cute little boys quilt is not displayed very well I was in a hurry and didn't realose until it ewas too late. This quilt is 100" long and 64" wide. so it is quilte large. The squares and borders have a feature fabric of bicycles. Just the thing for a little boy. I again used an e2e by Anne Bright this one is called bounceand when you see the back view you can see it gives the quilt lots of movement. I know this little fellow will love this quilt.

Almost Black and White

Almost black and white is the name for this beautifully handpieced dresden plate quilt After adding the rose border my customer realised that it is not black and white but black and cream hence the name.Esmae sows beautiful hand piecing and it is a pleasure to quilt for her. Even made the sufolk puffs. She wanted black thread on this one so I had to be careful not to quilt it too heavily.I believe it worked well.I love this quilt and it is the colours of my favourite football team.Come on the maggies(magpies).

pansies ,pansies everywhere.

Here we have another fat quarter quilt.this one had a feature fabric of pansies and the customer chose colours to make the quilt glow. I have quilted it with an all over design of pansies. Another lovely quilt

The creek has gone down some but it is raining again.If it rains all night the creek will be up again. Lets get some in the catchments.

I was really taken with this quilt for some reason. The colours and the design really appealed to me. I custom quilted it using elements of a set digitised by Joanne Knott from The Quilters Quilter. It is still a favourite of mine.

Hi .This is the creek at my place that my business is named after. It hasn't looked like this for about 10 years. We have had lots of lovely rain and the creek "Deep Creek" rose about 8 feet. It has receded a bit now but we are expecting more rain in the next few days. It is lovely to live here.

This is the weir at Lannecoorie,not far from where I live. It has not looked like this for over 10 years. Yay!!!!!

That's me in the picture above.
I have also been quilting and will post some more tomorrow.
