Beautiful Surprise

Arrived home from work last night to find an unexpected parcel in the letterbox.  A dear friend in America (who started out as a quilt customer) sent me these fabrics to make a quilt for myself simply because she knows I love yellow in a quilt.  The colours are beautiful and will look perfect in my yellow/white bedroom.  I'm thinking of making a large "Swoon" quilt.  I want to fussy cut the butterflies.  The range is called "Kumari Garden" from Dena Designs/Free Spirit Fabrics.


On Saturday my great-niece turned 1 - Mum's youngest great-grandchild.  So many littlies at the party.


"Takes the Cake" quilt top is together - it's a monster at 96" x 106", so will be like a bedspread on a queen bed.  Waiting for some backing to arrive then it can go to Karen for quilting.  I took a panorama photo so that it would all fit in.


Spent some time with my own little ones of Saturday afternoon and also did some cutting out over the weekend:  "Cakewalk" and "Pretty Petals" both in FigTree fabrics.  I've made one Pretty Petals block.  At 20" sq finished I think 9 will be enough for a lap quilt size, maybe 12 if I've cut out enough squares.


Looking forward to some holidays next month - a few days at home having fun with the family, probably some sewing and definitely some weeding the gardens.
