Swooning Southern Belles top finished and more...


Swooning Southern Belles.

I finished the top this morning and this afternoon the rain stoppped long enough for me to get a quick photo. Lots of Liberty and Liberty Lifestyle fabrics in this quilt.
I named the quilt after the blocks I used in the quilt.

Now to baste, quilt and bind it!

On the hand applique front I have a Roseville Album block completed.

All the pieces are prepared for the next block; the last of the nine centre blocks.

No photos of Jane Pizar progress this time, but I have the circle appliqued to the background square now.

This stack of delicious fabric from Green Fairy came in the mail this week.

Josephine by French General.  

Many of these fabrics will be used in Jane Pizar.

Here are some of my favourites:

 Look at the bees!!!!

Today I had a wonderful day with Cathy, Deb, Merran and Wendy (Instagramers) and a quick hello from Emma and Sarah.   We met at Amitie where, after lots of chatting and admiring lots and lots of fabrics, I chose these fabrics to come home with.

 I plan to make a quilt for my son (hence no floral fabrics! Lol) The quilt I will be making is pictured in the header of Cathy's blog.

After working up an appetite over fabrics we had lunch before going home.

We have been blessed with some wonderful weather earlier this week.
Here is another peek of spring time in my garden.

PS.  I am now in Instagram. Look for mjnorindr. Drop by and say hello! :)
