Blogger's Quilt Festival

I am participating in the Blogger's Quilt Festival organized by Amy from Amy's Creative Side, from May 21st to the 25th, 2010. The quilt I have chosen is designed by Sharon Wilkinson and is called Flower Power.

My Girlfriend Lillian asked me to make this for her friend getting married in London.


It has raw edge applique flowers with a checkerboard border and a plain border.
I have machine quilted feathers in the plain border and quilted line dancing
in the checkerboard with an all over meandering in the body of the quilt.


Lillian choose the fabrics, and I really love the bright colours set against the white,
I really enjoyed machine quilting this quilt and I hope that Lillian's friend
enjoys her Wedding Present.

Butterfly Ballet

Butterfly Ballet is what I'm working on at the moment for my daughter, who has been waiting
patiently for me to complete this. Simone wants to paint some of  the butterflies in a diagonal
direction across the quilt and then embellish them with crystals.

Will post later when she has finished.


Hermione Agee of Lorien Quilting did this a while ago and it looks
fantastic.
Doesn't this look gorgeous??

Happy Quilting!!

Block G Finished

Block G is finished....Yay!!...
Not quite on time as I had a little glitch, you see my fabric that I have chosen has
writing on it and some pieces were upside down, thanks to hubbies eagle eyes and attention to detail,
this was quickly rectified and taa daa!! its done. So glad this was picked up on the first block and not the tenth, as there would have been one unhappy little quilter.

So now its onto the next block.
Happy Stitching!!
