Long weekend.

Hi everyone,
Hope you are all having a nice long weekend. I am home so I intend to sew and sort out the last two borders on my Marriage quilt.
Its been great fun choosing fabrics for the new whimsical wool quilt nothing like retail therapy. I noticed Cottage Quilt Works has some lovely wool squares for the quilt have a look at their blog.
I also bought a great book by Sue Spargo called creative stitches which has fantastic instructions for embellishing the wool pieces.
We will be starting the quilt in August so you have plenty of time to gather the fabric.
Here we are destroying Patchwork Plus finding just the right fabric.

Lorraine's Cream Tea is so beautiful I love two coloured quilts.

Suzette has nearly finished her quilt.

Deb was sewing her binding on her French Mosaic.

Vanessa has the centre of Eye Candy And Miss Porter and John finished.

Lorraine will be at the Sydney show so visit The Patchwork Plus stand and say hello.
Just a few pictures from Wednesday at Quiltsmith.
Lindi is making one of my really old patterns Birds of a Feather such a cute little quilt.

Jan has finished Miss Porter and John and Lucy Boston.

Lenore has worked hard on her blocks for Eye Candy.

Lynn has also finished Miss Porter and John.

How beautiful! Carol has finished her Marriage Quilt.

Also Barb has finished her Plain and Fancy.

Well best get in my sewing room and tidy the desk so I can do my borders.
I will be at the show on Wednesday so hope to catch up with some of you there.
