2 Quilt Tops

Two quilts were started over the Easter break:  Cake Mix Recipe 4 made into star blocks

and "Seaglass" designed by Susan Ache from her book "Starting with Strips".  A great quilt to use up lots different fabrics.  They both have the same "Miss Scarlet" fabric by Minick and Simpson for the background.

I love how this has turned out and can't wait to see it quilted and take some daylight photos.

I've been thinking about making a quilt of house blocks for quite a while.  I have an overflowing box of red and blue fabrics and want to use them up.

This house pattern is a very slightly modified version of Thimble Blossoms' "Winterville" house and the chain block was designed by Fort Worth Fabric Studio.

Caught up on the Bonnie and Camille beehive blocks - this green block is from Thimble Blossoms' "Summer" pattern and is to be sent out in June.

This one is for my sampler quilt

I recently had a birthday and went out for dinner to a restaurant near Elizabeth and Matt's home.  Truffle Pecorino Cheese Wheel - it's the best.

The family went out for lunch on Saturday to "Sublime Point Cafe" - really like this place too.  Beautiful flowers from Peta and Michael

and a birthday present from Gulliver - he said "Happy Birthday Nanna - we can share!" as he was helping me rip open the parcel.

More family time and presents yesterday for Mother's Day - it's a good time of year.
