Happy Easter

Happy easter to everyone, I hope you are all enjoying a break with your families. I am making the most of my 4 days off and catching up on a few projects that I wanted to get finished. I'm doing the happy dance as already I have finished 3 quilts. Thats quite an achievement for me. This is my Miss Millies quilt by Bronwyn hayes, I decided to hand quilt this one and boy did it take ages, I am very happy with it though and its well worth all that hard work,

All I need to do now is make a label.


Last week I had 2 rows to sew on my postcard quilt, well thats done now so its finished and ready to be quilted. I really don't know how I'll quilt this. I'm thinking doing a stipple or something simple around all the postcards. This is my most favourite quilt. I love it.



This morning I sewed the borders on this beauty, The applique is by Natalie Bird and the rest of the design is by me. I decided to make mine different than what Natalie did. I'm so pleased with the end result. What do you think? Did I do a good job?
Well thats all my show and tell for today, I will share more tomorrow. Hope easter bunny visits your house tonight.

How marvellous to finish three quilts! I am in awe of you hand quilting and it really does make that quilt very special. Your postcard quilt looks wonderful and I really like your design changes to Natalie's - makes it your own. Happy Stitching, Ann :-)

Love the colours you used in Miss Millie, the postcards quilt reminds me of tripping around Australia.
