Things you see in the back yard

 Cow wearing fireman's hat
 Husband gathering eggs - they're laying under the chicken house - not in the designated nest area.
Success!

But wait - there's more!


 More circles - loved these too.
 Priscilla outdid herself with this one - Helen Godden style. There were words stitched in the 'rivers' running out of the book.
This was only one block on a fascinating 1st time entrant.  The quilt depicted scenes from Africa & there was a lot of hand stitching - just brilliant.  Queensland Quilters outdid themselves again - a great show & a big thank you to all who helped get it there.

 Our Qld Quilters' Art Quilt group concentrated on eco-dyeing this year & we're displaying some of what was made at the show.

Ready for quilting

Basted this king sized quilt on Sunday - it took all my safety pins.  Now I have to work up the courage to start quilting it.  Think it'll take a bit of time to do.

Workshop with Jane


Last week I did a workshop with Jane http://quiltingjane.blogspot.com.au/ & learnt to use rulers with free motion quilting. I've got a lot of practising to do but it was fun to watch Jane and learn from her.
