Medallion Sew-Along

I have finished the stitching of the second border for this little quilt. I have enjoyed making all those small blocks. Lori will be back soon with the instructions for the final border which is more applique.
To see more of these little quilts Lori has a Link-up Party on her blog.

I am keen to start making the pinwheel blocks (the correct size this time! Lol)  for my other centre.

As I mentioned in my last post I am continuing to make delectable mountain blocks. Here are the most recently completed blocks.

It has been ages since I had any photos from my garden!!  Here are a few from this afternoon.

I could hardly believe my eyes when I saw this one! A Jonquil this early in June! It smells delightful too!

The little Correa is starting to bloom... are all the Zygocactus plants.

 Lastly an African Violet that is doing well inside.

Winter is with us here in Melbourne. The days are getting shorter and the weather has cooled off.
Perfect stitching weather!
