This quilt was in the making for at least 2 years and I finally got the inspiration to finish it. I also needed to get it done by November for my GD Emmas 3rd birthday. It is called Truly Scrupmsious by Cinderberry Stitches and Emma will love it as she likes her possessions to be pretty.

This one is Tis The Season and is a quilt I have done from a SAL organised bt Chookyblue. It was an easy quilt to stitch and I chose to do it in a hand dyed varigated red/ green thread with a little bit of gold thread sewn on each block to give it a bit of contrast. I quilted it on my machine and I think I need a bit more practice before I get all my stitching lines straight.

This quilt as yet I dont know who will be its owner I made a couple of years ago and got my friend Dawn to quilt it for me on her quilting frame. It is a pattern called Turning 20 and uses 20 fat quarters that are cut in the same way and then reassembled using pieces from each pile. A very quick way of doing a quilt.
Cheers for now Jude

I have been doing a lot of sewing lately and some I will share as soon as I can charge the camera, others I cant as they are secret Santa gifts. I had my DD and her family visit at the weekend and my dear twin GD`s gave me some lovely daffodils. They had been to visit friends in the Adelaide Hills and they had a field full of these beautiful blooms. Lucky me to get a bunch and they reminded me of my maternal Grandfather who used to grow them in his garden and give bunches to my Mother. So it was nice to recieve them and to bring back memories of my Granddad.
