Home Sweet Home

Well I have finally finished travelling around the country side and I am back home
where I might add its freezing cold.

I have been to Yarrawonga which is up on the Murray River, the border of Victoria and New South Wales, to be with my Mum,while Dad had his knee Replacement Operation. Turns out he is the star
patient they discharged him today and he only had the op on Monday, not bad for 78.

Back to my quilting, while I was away I did manage to find some Patchwork Shops and brought
some fabrics.

An assortment of blues for hubbies quilt.
He's always hinting that he doesn't have his own quilt, so I have
decided to make a Wonky Log Cabin Quilt, I got the tutorial from
at Tallgrass Prairie Studio.

I have made a test block

and so far so good.

Also I purchased some brights for the backing for my summertime quilt

So all I need to do is get busy, so

Happy Quilting!!

Hi Mandy, So glad to hear your Dad is recovering and of course...he would've been a star patient. I love the colours you have chosen for your quilt, they are devine. It's great to travel...but there's no place like home. Kind regards, Anita.
