They're finished!! Yay!! 28 Le Moyne stars for the AQ are all done.
The next step will be much quicker because I will be machining on the border fabric and machining all the stars together, I can't wait to see what the quilt looks like when the stars are on. I love watching quilts grow. I have the instructions for the next round already, so I have to get a move on! Most of the fabric in this quilt is from the Dargate Lavender and Mints range and I love the designs. Great fabric makes my heart sing!
I recently joined a blog group with this shop. Every few months they send out a little surprise package for you to create something with. I received this tea cup fabric and the card of buttons. The buttons look like mother of pearl. I'm not sure what I will make yet. Any suggestions???
I have been fabric shopping again! More brights. The pink spot fabric is a polished cotton. The purple with butterflies I will be using with something for my daughter; she loves purple and butterflies! The four fabrics at the bottom of the photo are Kaffe Fassett shot cottons. (the little bundle on the left is actually a lilac colour) They are quite a different texture to his prints. They are more loosely woven.
I am planning to use the polished cotton with some other fabrics to make a lap top bag.
I am almost finished the next MQ block. I am taking a days break from hand sewing because I have a sore finger. I think I might have some kind of allergy to something in the fabrics. I usually don't wash my fabric before I sew with it. (........too impatient to get sewing!!) I think I should start washing with my next projects and see what happens.
Below are some irises from my garden. The rose bush behind has single flowers that last only a day. It flowers for many months and almost always has several blooms. The flowers vary from a deep pink to an apricot/pink colour. All the spring flowering bulbs are almost finished now and the rose bushes have grown and are all in bud. Lots of native plants are in flower now too.
When I walk around our neighbourhood the most predominant perfume is Jasmine. We don't have a plant now, but it seems there are several on every street.
Have a great weekend everyone. :)
