New quilts

I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year. I enjoyed the holiday and managed to have nine days off -thanks to Leanne and Kym- even if I did appear at the shop most days. We had some great days out -lunch at the Strawberry Farm at Hillwood, the Rasberry farm at Christmas Hills and a visit to the Latrobe markets and icecream at the Cherry Farm. We also went to the Taste in Hobart and had a very pleasant day.

This is my new class sample for beginners, beautifully quilted by Leanne. I have been able to finish a few quilts over the break, but the pile is not being diminished because I have also started a few more. Below is a small quilt made using some of the fabric from Central Park by Kate Spain. I am also using this fabric in my stitchery that I started in Helen Stubbings "Stitching round the block" and another very girly quilt. A layer cake goes a long way.

Here is a quick sample top I've made using the new "Spot" fabric. Must try and quilt it before Leanne comes back to work. And below is another simple table runner I made using 5" squares. Again very simply stipple quilted by me.
The best news is that I have finally finished writing up and packaging The French Medallion. Such a relief to have it all finished, and I won't be taking on another one for a long while. Thanks to all for your patience.
I am working on three new BOM"s for this year, Michele Hills-The Adelaide Sample Quilt , Lynette Anderson's -Stitched by Me and Monica Poole's -Peacock Garden.
Happy quilting

  1. Gorgeous quilts and I love the arrangements of the small squares to make a bigger pattern in the Central Park one. Oh Spot, I wish I knew someone who liked Spot!!
