Well, term 2 has finally finished and I am looking forward to two weeks holiday. Term 2 was very busy with lots of sickness and limited stitching and blogging. I am so pleased that winter is over and spring has come. Those who know me will attest that I'm definitely not a cold weather person!
This is a rather 'grey and depressing' photo of a block I made for a member of the Material Girls who recently turned 70. We each had to stitch a block of our choice that reflected the theme 'Flowers in Bev's Garden'. The stitchery is by Kirstin Kirby of Picaninni Patchwork and appeared in Australian Country Threads Vol 4 No 12. I enlarged it to fit a 9 1/2 inch square block.
Over the last few weeks I have made a start on my Truly Scrumptious quilt. I have traced all the stitcheries and started attaching borders to each of the blocks. I am using an older fabric range by Figtree Quilts called Allspice Tapestry. I took my jellyroll to Spotlight and choose DMC threads that compliment the fabrics. Since these pictures were taken, I've finished stitching the first block and made a start on number 2.
