Finished quilt top (1)

Well - Here is the first finished top photo - a little hurried as the 'helpers' were not really helping - well, they were, but under duress as quilt holders often seem to be - why 'just a little higher' brings out groans I don't know!

I digress - My Oakshott Quilt Top - I am in love with it, I must say. I love the layout - can anyone see the deep blue sky leading to the golden orb sun and down to the green flora and the deep red earth. Very organic is how I may describe this one.

Next test is the quilting - aaahhhh that is causing me just a Huge amount of grief and stress atm - special quilting machine is getting serviced, waiting on parts for yet another week - this will be nearly a month now, so I am doing a mad and I mean crazy dash to get some angel to see my vision and deliver me. I have such a vision for the quilting of this - I cannot say more, but I wanted something special since conception and I must not waver.

Wish me luck! I will keep you peeps up to date!

AMH feather block for Lorena in Ausmod Bee

This pretty (not so little) thing has given me undue angst! For very little reason too! Once I set myself to the job, it was a sweetie to sew!!!

Now I know why people baulk at this pattern, but love love it once it's made.

Hmmm....Could I do more?........

A whole lot of colour

Look where I'm going soon!  Just announced to the family that I'm making a special trip just to see some 

They just smiled and said 'okay Mum'.

In other words, don't expect us to come too!

They just don't get it :)
