………..and trust me……
Go to it!!!
Time to share some of my favs with you again,
Addicted to Quilts. Desley is a long arm quilter, she does all her quilting free hand with out computer assistance, as I do. I enjoy looking at her creative solutions.
Blue Mountain Daisy Rachael lives in the Blue Mountains of New South Wales, Australia. Her quirky denim Double Wedding ring quilt was accepted to go on tour around the USA. While you are visiting her blog make sure you check out her Clam shell quilt. Very different, I like that.
Confessions of a Fabric Addict I swear this lady never sleeps!She has a super busy life, managing the making of quilts for her church’s ministry. On a Friday she holds a Linky Party “Can I get a Whoop Whoop.And as if that isn’t enough she’s helping her daughter raise funds to adopt a baby from China. Phew, makes me tired just reading all the things she does.
Jacquelynne Steves This is a new to me blog I have just found my way to.For starters I love the look of this blog, very pretty. She offers a free E Magazine with some very cute ideas. She is just launching a free BOM which has several options. One being the choice of making 4 or 6 blocks. Applique may be added if that’s your thing but the quilt will look just as nice without.
This list would not be complete without adding a Kiwi blog. Check this one out The Slightly Mad Quilt Lady. Charlotte works magic with fabric, paint and stitching. She brings a distinctly New Zealand feel to her work. As well as being a very busy craft person Charlotte, her husband and two children are about to leave life on solid land and live on board a refurbished 1945 Naval boat!
Do pop over and check out these blogs. Say “Hi” from me.
……..and just in case you were longing for a picture:
The Seed Moon taken on the 9th. Thanks to Leeanne of Cottage Tails for her informative posts about the Moon.
A parcel arrived for me today, posted by my blogger friend Cat of Catalina’s Cottage.Now I have quilted a couple of quilts for Cat, the parcel was squishy so I though it was a top and backing for me to quilt for her.
Surprise! Look at this…
What an amazing surprise. Turns out that Cat had sent out a message via Instagram (very sneaky!) asking fellow NZ quilters to make hugs and kisses blocks for me.I am so humbled that Cat organised this for me. I am left wondering who are the other quilting friends out there that stitched blocks? Time to ‘fess up fellow bloggers.
Leanne of Quiltmekiwi completed the quilting. Leanne is a knockout quilter. She does all her quilting on a small Bernina machine. I am in awe of her work. She obviously knows how I like texture. I love the way she has straight lines through the kisses and rounded shapes in the hugs. Very clever. She even popped a few feathers in there. Love love.
Even the back is pretty!
Thanks dear friends, Cat in particular. You are all so kind. This quilt will always have a special place in my home.
Your hugs and kisses are waiting to snuggle and comfort me.
Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Look even the cats though it was hot:
I still managed to get some quilting done. A couple of Maxie’s little quilts.
Two quilts made with the same pattern. Two very different looks.
Thanks for popping by.
…..nearly across the finish line. Off the frame and trimmed. Today I am only going to show the back. Andreena is picking it up tomorrow. Although she hasn’t been reading my blog I don’t want to risk her seeing the finish.
That final border took about 3 hours to complete. I decided to turn the quilt yet again.I’m so glad I have Red Snappers. It always seems easier to execute piano keys across rather than down the borders.
A final look
I think that brings my hours tally to 27.
Come on back tomorrow to see the front.
Thanks for popping by.
