Mini quilt swap

Recently I was in a mini quilt swap with my postcard group, I made the log cabin quilt with a stitchery in the middle and i received the other one, its very sweet and comes all the way from America,
I have been so busy lately finishing projects, I sent my secret easter swap stuff last week, I'll post a picture when I know my partner has received her gifts. I can't wait for easter break where i can get stuck into a few more projects.

Simply beautiful

Look at the gorgeous quilt. Its a Robyn Allan Waters design called French Collection. This quilt was made by Raylene who is a regular customer at the shop where I work, she has done a beautiful job then to finish it off it was custom quilted by Rebecca who used to work at Esme's but now lives in Queensland. I reckon I'm going to have to add this quilt to my wish list, I love it,

Another finish..

Don't you love Sally Giblin designs, her work is beautiful, Here is a cushion I recently finished for the shop, It was such a nice project to work on, I learnt to do prairie points which were quite easier than I first thought.

What a week

What did we ever do before computers I'll never know, My computer crashed on Wednesday and I was devastated. How could I do my blog and oh no I can't check my e-mails, After much consideration and a very sweet and understanding husband I got a new computer. My old one was not worth spending more money on it. Now I'm back in blog land and very happy.

I have had a busy week at work, Lillian has been sewing like mad to complete her Kittens Tale BOM, its looking beautiful so far.

I am about to start hand quilting my Miss Millies flower patch quilt, I'm so pleased to have nearly finished this quilt,

My trip to Melbourne

On Saturday my friends Cathy, Anna and myself headed off to Melbourne for the quilt convention, we had a great day together, shopping, talking and catching up with a few of our Tassie blogger friends. I even met Gail Pann who was just delightful,
These are a few reproduction fabrics I bought, I think I'll make a quilt for one of the boys, the blues and browns are beautiful together.

I want to make this quilt, This was on Natalie Birds stall, I loved the pink and reds.

More of Natalie's work, she was very kind and let me take a photo.

Melbourne buildings were very interesting, some very old and some very high.

The big 5 0
