Back Again

Oops been awhile but here is a little of what I have been up to on the quilting front. Life, gardening and a little golfing trip away all happened. After weeks of rain the sun is shining  and so it is time for the garden makeover for summer. Yay I love summer!
So back to the quilting-
This gorgeous pile of Batik Charm squares arrived on my doorstep after a long journey from USA-think they must've travelled right around the world to get here as they took a while after posting to arrive.
Going back to before Bloggers Quilt Festival there was a Shadow Block Mini Quiltalong that was run by Janice at Color, Creating and Quilting and while I didn't participate I did comment on a couple of blogs. Then one morning I got an email that I  had won a giveaway-but hey I haven't entered any giveaways so I  thought it was Spam mail!!! It turned out that there were some giveaways for those who commented (I didn't read that part!!) and I won these wonderful charms from Jennifer at Dizzy Quilter and look at the wonderful card that was included as well.. Thank you so much Jennifer and to Janice.

For those who have visited before this may be a 'I've seen that before ' moment but this is the second quilt that I have made in this pattern and colour way (by request) but this one is quilted differently to the first. (it does lie flat just not in this photo)The woman I made it for is about to become a grandmother for the first time and she loves it.
 Nice pink dot minkee on the back
Then this is a peak at the customer quilt that was on the machine for awhile and I can say it is now in the hands of the recipient who let me know she loves it, which always brings a sigh of relief.
My October OMG is now a top (and being quilted) but I can't say that I am in love with it. I have used these fabrics in a Strip Quilt and thought it was great but this design doesn't do it for me. The colours in this photo are a bit washed out and it was a battle with the wind to take a photo.
Soft green dot minkee for the backing and Glide thread in Seafoam.


So that's the rap for now. I'm off out into the garden while the sun is shining. Back to work tomorrow and then we have rain forecast so hopefully I get the garden finished today.
I'll leave you with the first Passionfruit Flower on my vine this season-
I'm hoping for many more followed by the fruit.

Happy Quilting
Thank You for visiting.

  1. It is fun seeing the quilting on the dot minky. Another beautiful quilt. I can see why it was requested again.

  3. The baby quilt is lovely! The dot minky on the back is a nice finsh. Good on you finishing your OMG - even if you aren't in love with it, it is done now (bar the quilting!) which is great! Yaay for spring gardening, we've been enjoying a bit of that lately too.

  4. Oh! That passion fruit flower is stunning! I wonder if they'd grow in Florida (we will be heading down fairly soon). I do love those colours for the baby quilt too; maybe the orange pops too much this way whereas with the strips it would blend more? But the pièce de résistance is that first pink and white baby quilt WOW! Always love seeing your quilting. Always.
