Back in the saddle

Thank you everyone who gave me such encouraging words - I really appreciate the support and just knowing that others kindov understand and even if they don't, it doesn't matter, they have given me a 'cyber' hug anyway - besides......there is always fabric and chocolate (thanks Clair!)

So...down to business....
Monika's Boxy Stars -from Miss Monny Quilts -  great block to make (when you get it right!) and loved using the blues and greens (two of my fave Neptunes in the pack too!)

Monika asked for a signature block - gee, that mucked up piece that I did has come in rather handy....

This was a challenge for me!!  hand appliqued this piece with a backing to make it easier

Annie's fabric cried out to be used on its own - some raw edge applique - some good, some wonky....

I liked the end result though. Hope Annie does.

Australasian Bee Block again - this time for Nova - some lovely wonky stars of delightful pinks and greens with a white background - this is going to look so pretty!!

A quick baby quilt for my neighbour's new little girl: Amy Claire
using Alexander Henry's Bunnies
This is my second quilt from this range - the colours are so fun and the bunnies and carrots cute as!

I did have a bit of a mental blank, after starting with lots of hourglass pieces of carrots and white - I couldn't get past the 'what next' phase?
Something Kaffe Fassett has said about his own quilts is that he likes to include as many different fabrics as possible; that this seek and find of many patterns and colours is what he enjoys in a quilt, prompted me to pull out many different pinks and greens and just 'go wild'.  
I did enjoy the eclectiveness of this quilt, using stash fabrics I had even forgotten about!

And these are my babies, enjoying a cuddle with little Amy.

A plethora of limes from a neighbour's tree has produced a delicious, finger-licking, eating out of the jar, fight for the last drop Lime Butter

Julie's Lemon Diva Cupcakes are going to have to be next! 
Can you imagine? Lemon Delicious cake with Lime Delicious Butter - heaven!

How busy have you been? We've missed you around the place. The lime butter sounds yummy, you have to make the Lemon Diva cupcakes, made them with Caitlin during the school holidays and they are delish..!!

I love all of your creations sweetie.
Blessings & squeezy hugs
