Hey! Two at once! It's like London Transport Buses! Made these two quilt from Pam and Nicky Lintott's pattern "Sparkling Gemstones" in their book Jelly Roll Quilts. Loved the idea for large patterned fabric and it's so easy. Quick and effective! My kind-a-quilt!

The first quilt has the sashings all from the same fabric, The second one has different sashings from a jelly roll. You've got to love Peg's Pieces. They came up to the Illawarra Quilters' Retreat at Stanwell Tops and I bought 11 pre cut pieces
6 1/2" X wof in the black, red and white (in a great tin with a see-thru lid), together with a black and white Jelly Roll. Then I strip sewed one B&W strip either side of a R,B&W and cut into 10 1/2" blocks.

A Brand New Year

Have been rather slack regarding my Blog!! However, I finally got out the camera and took some photos so now I'm ready to add if I can remember how!
Finished No2 grandson's 21st birthday quilt. Pleased with it too. It's Leesa Chandler's Emperor's Stepping Stone pattern.

Disappearing 9 Patch

This is a fascinating concept. Saw it demonstrated at a fabric place outside of Vincentia. Couldn't wait to try it out with some of Loreli's Christmas Ladies. Just amazed at the results.

Had a great trip to Japan in 2008 with a group of quilters, lead by Lynn Hewitt. While we were there, we met up with a wonderful group of Japanese quilters. We took some show and tell and shared experiences with them. I took a memory quilt (pillow case, actually) that I'd made for my daughter. On our last day in Kyoto we were taken to a Dying workshop where we were guided through the steps to make a printed hankerchief. It was similar to silk screening, except we worked with stencils, five in all. We were shown how to match up each stencil to keep the scene true. I chose an autumn scene and include it on the back of the challenge quilt we made when we came home.
