Back at last ……. with a new project!

Did someone remove March from the calendar? When I saw my last post was dated in February you could have knocked me over with a feather – surely it hasn’t been that long!! I knew that it had been a while since my last post as I have been extremely busy with all the boring things in life plus lots of other committments, but I won’t bore you with them.

Here is the finished quilt (sorry missed the sneak peek) that I was working on using fabrics called “Summertime Friends” by Lynette Anderson. It has been such a joy working with her fabric range and I hope that you like the finished result.

The quilt which I have called “Summer Rain” measures 45 inches square and makes a perfect lap quilt. The fabric has all of the soft muted hues that reminded me of slightly overcast days just before it rains, hence the name.

If you happen to be going to the Australasian Quilt Convention in Melbourne April 14-17 2011 you may just be able to have a peek at it on The Patchwork Tea House stand as the pattern will be available for sale.

I am currently working on a Homespun project so I can’t show you a snippet at the moment and I have a few other projects coming up for retreats and also a project for Country Hart in Port Pirie in South Australia for their “My Sewing Room” Project of the Month. Why not pop on over & visit the website for more information.

I hope that my next post isn’t too far away – I do tend to get sidetracked at the moment. Hope your weekend is relaxing with time for a little stitching pampering!!!

    • Hi Susan,

      While the quilt will be here in Melbourne, a shop “Blue Willow Cottage” who stock some of my patterns will be there at the show. I can arrange to have a pattern for you with them if you would like or you can order it through me on my website. It is due to be put on my website this weekend sometime. It will be under the quilt button.

      Thanks for your comment and I hope you have a nice Easter.
