Over the weekend I finished off the double hourglass quilt top (block design from Cluck Cluck Sew) using Sweet fabrics and some Moda Bella Solid in a lovely baby yellow that I bought from Bec a couple of months ago.
The quilt has turned out quite large (83-1/2" sq) and I'm now thinking about how to quilt it. I need to find somewhere at home to photograph larger quilts and start using John's camera so that the colours show up better in the photos - the colours in this fabric range are really lovely, not washed out as in these photos.
There has also been a bit of secret sewing/stitching happening at home.
I am finally making headway with The Wish Quilt - sewing the heart appliques and floral spray filler blocks at lunchtimes and the chequerboard blocks have all been made, so maybe another couple of weeks and this quilt top will be together.
While I was away I started stitching block one of the Gingham Girls "My Favourite Things" quilt - love stitching these girls. I've come across a couple of mistakes in the patterns - block 1: thread used for face and hands should be 3859; block 2: background for applique needs to be cut 1/2" longer.
This coming weekend is a long weekend here in NSW. We will be going to Sydney on Sunday to have dinner with our children and their partners. So looking forward to seeing Michael and Peta - Michael proposed to Peta on Monday and she said yes - we are thrilled to bits, tickled pink, over the moon ...
