A Gardeners Journal - Block B

Block B complete...yeah!!

I'm on a roll
I have decided to Raw Edge Applique my Hearts
and I will do that when I have it on Milly (longarm machine)

Chooky asked me how am I going to quilt this and I haven't quite decided
exactly what to do but maybe some feathers meandering and some line dancing.
I'm sure it will come to me when its on the frame.

Another Finish this week.

As you all know I'm a fan of Kellie Wulfsohn and when I
saw her Monster Quilt I had to do something , as time
is short I decided on a cushion. I just love this cushion it is so colourful.

I also love the technique of raw edge applique.
Combined with machine quilting

This is my favorite Monster, he's soo cute!

and GD loved them too!

Mr Magoo has a face

Finally Mr Magoo has a face and a new home.

 Little (GD) turned two this week and we had a
lovely BBQ at Healesville Sanctuary.

 Finally they meet and she loves him, I really enjoyed
making Magoo but I did find stuffing his arms and legs
a little bit of a challenge as they were so narrow.

But I'm happy with the result, Magoo is a pattern
designed by Melly & Me, I think he's adorable.

 Happy Sunday!

Stack and Whack

 I don't know about you but sometimes I find it hard to
photograph a quilt, this one was especially a problem as
I could not get the colour right.

In the end this was the best I could do

as you can see, I have my trusty assistant with me

 He is my shadow and sometimes he decides to sit rest right where he 
pleases and if thats in the way then too bad mum.

Sentimental Journey by Robyn Pandolph, I love this fabric even though
its been a while since its release, I followed the stack and whack method
which was very easy and quick, made up of 12 inch squares stacked on top
of each other then cut into a further 6 pieces and reassembled.

I then quilted it with a panto, Tea Roses.

A nice and easy quilt to make if your in a hurry

Happy Quilting!

Vegie Delight

have been waiting patiently for my
Vegie patch to produce and finally....even though the tomatoes are still green....

picked them....I figure its getting a bit late for tomatoes.

I am sure someone told me they will ripen on there own
in  a warm sunny position???.

Sooooo Corn, tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, beans and a couple of
capsicums....I'm happy with that

Till next time
