The End of July Already!

Can't believe I haven't posted in so long. more frequent updates on the Facebook page though.I have not been sitting idly by and twiddling my thumbs.

Before I launch into my blog post. I have a big favour to ask. My niece has entered a photo of an echidna in a competition. The six photo with the most votes will go on display in the Museum coffee shop. 

Can you please vote for her photo on this link.  To vote you need to like the photo. Many many thanks in advance.

My latest creation is a quilt for a fellow cat lover. The designs I used for this were from  BFC Creations Cats Could Talk sets. I picked these designs because they sum up my cats completely.
If Cats Could Talk quilt
The border print is very similar to an Escher type geometric design. This fabric has been in my stash for quite some time.
I also made a black/ white and grey quilt with a hint of grey as a special request from a friend of mine for a well deserving young lady. These design are the Black and White Florals set from Hatched in Africa.

The layout for both of these quilts is a variation on the Starburst pattern under the Free Pattern/Projects tab.
The Teddy Quilt is the Starburst pattern and will be a quilt for the women's shelter. These designs are the Teddy Bears Applique set from Hatched in Africa. These deigns stitched out so well. I will be making more quilts like this and just change the colour of the tie or just leave it off completely.

My 82 year old Mum has embroidered two lovely woollen bears. These are just gorgeous.

I have also lined and made the little quilts for another 7 little coffin boxes for the little angels in our Tasmanian hospitals.
