A busy week to be sure and company in the garden
Tuesday saw a little visit to the Sewing Connection for these beauties. The pinks and purples will be for my Glacier Star Quilt and the strip and star fabric will be for my border and binding of my mystery that I am sharing with you all here. Next clue in the morning. Please note that the first clue did have a mistake and you should have 72 four patch units not 36. I have edited the blog post but just Incase you have missed my amendment I thought I would just mention it here.
I have been working on my Decades of stars quilt and I am happy with the progress and the way the quilting is bring this quilt to life.
These Little Wattlebird visited the garden for the nectar in this Calistemon and I managed to get a couple photos of them.
They also have a wonderful song and are beautiful to listen to. I really love my garden the way it attracts these lovelies.
Oh and here are some fabrics from the stash by Denyse Schmidt that will make an appearance in an upcoming quilt which I am excited about and these fabrics are just a tad gorgeous also. I will have some piecing and some applique to do for this quilt and I'm sure you will love it.
Today I have been doing some free motion quilting on this UFO. So tomorrow I should have another quilt finished. I am happy that my machine quilting is coming together also. My first love will always be hand quilting but sometimes time and other constraints make hand quilting not possible. So I will be happy to be able to create lovely quilts using the machine for these occasions.
This is the entirety of the quilt. It was a free block of the month I did with a Facebook quilting group about four years ago with my scraps and I finally got these blocks into a top this year and am now completing the quilting and having fun!
So tomorrow morning I will give you the next clue in the mystery. We will have one more week and then the mystery will be revealed. I hope you are having as much fun with it as I am.
So tell me how has your week gone? Have you had a Quilty week or a relaxing week of something in between. Leave a comment in the comment box and let me know!
Until the morning have a great night or day wherever you are in the world.
P.S. Remember A creative person never gets bored!
