A Little Trip

Borders have been sewn onto the "Swell" quilt top and the backing made - it's all ready to be quilted.


I've had such a lovely few days away with Elizabeth, Matt and ChaCha.  They are in Port Douglas for a holiday and invited me to fly up with them for a long weekend.  On Monday we drove up through the Daintree Rainforest to Cape Tribulation - some beautiful beaches along the way.  We stopped for ice cream (sapote, wattle seed, mango and coconut) at the Daintree Ice Cream Factory - such beautiful gardens there where they grow the "flavours" for the ice cream and a large variety of teas.

While I was away I started some secret stitching and I finished it off last night.  Feels good to be ahead of schedule for a change.


Last week Sarah sent me some photos of my Starry Orange Letter Day Quilt on her frame.


I picked it up from the post office today - it looks fantastic.

 
Think I'll make a scrappy orange binding for this quilt tonight.

There has also been a little bit of machine embroidery happening for Jenni's friend.

The Daintree ice cream is amazing isn't it! Love your letter day quilt - I never would have thought of it in orange but it looks fantastic xxx

How do you trust your precious quilt with Australia Post!? I have had so many things lost in recent times, I would be on tenterhooks waiting for something so beautiful as your quilt to arrive safely! Love the orange! Happy binding!

Port Douglas is a lovely destination (no patchwork shop, but still very good!). Your new quilt looks fantastic, and I don't usually go for orange. Love having some binding to do.

it would be a great feeling stitching the binding on such a beaty.
