A few people have asked about the Ryland Manor block of the month I showed last post. When finished it will measure 78 1/2" square. In Australia, the Pattern and Fabric Pack is $45.00 per month including postage and the Pattern Only is available for $13.50. Threadbear does not have a website so here is the address if you are interested.

Hope this is helpful. It really is a beautiful quilt.

Sadly, I've been too busy or tired to do much stitching this week. Hanging out for the weekend when I plan to stay home and sew and catch up on some blogs.
Here is another of the superb quilts I was lucky enough to see in Melbourne last Friday. It is Judy Day's Prince's Feather and was adapted from a quilt made in Ohio in 1845.

The hand quilting is just amazing. This lady does 3 or 4 stitches to my one!

As this picture shows the quilt features corded and stuffed leaves and grapes.

I'm sure you're not surprised that this quilt won prizes at both Paducah and the Sydney Quilt Show. Bye for now.
