Gosh it's been a long time since I have shared anything in here. In fact I don't seem to blog much at all these says. This does not mean that I have not been keeping busy.
Babies are on my agenda, with two baby quilt finishes this month. The first one for a workmate having a little boy, she is decorating the nursery in yellow grey and white, but who could resist a pop of aqua.
The second one is for another workmate due in November but she is not sharing her discovery of the baby's sex, so it's unisex. I had fun making this quilt and plan to do a few more, they are great for using left over jelly roll strips, this one is in scrumptious.
Apologies for my shadow on the pic, it's hard to get a good photo on these dreary days.

A massive UFO DONE!
I can't even remember when I started my Dresden Plate Quilt, but it was easily 3-4 years ago!
I'm just so THRILLED to get it finished.
I haven't even pulled out the gathering threads yet! I was just so excited to have actually finished it. AND I made matching, quilted pillowcases too.
I'm making another pair tonight in a different design.
This project has been like an Albatross around my neck.
Every time I started something new, I would get this guilty feeling about my Dresden Plate quilt.
Now I'm free to finish a few other LITTLE projects and do some new ones as well.
I'm so happy!
Who else has had some really good finishes lately? It would appear there isn't too much activity going on here now?
Right... bye for now.

But I had a lot of the strips left over.
I found a use for them!
18 days ago I decided to make a Queen sized quilt for my eldest son, who was returning home to New Zealand, from Australia.
I knew he would feel the cold.
This is what I made him:
I am calling it The Fern Quilt, because it has a Kiwi inspired fern.
I'm very proud of it. It was the first time I had done Prairie Points too. They were a nice touch. I have stitched them down on the pillowcases.
I hope everyone is busy sewing?
