We Will Remember Them

Today marks 100 years since the landing at Gallipoli.
Our Monday night sewing group was asked by the council to make a commemorative blanket for the ANZAC service.
We were given about 200 knitted poppies and an Army blanket.
We were honored to be asked and proud of our result.

They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning
We will remember them.

Baby Louie's Whale Quilt

Thanks to the Quilt Block Boot Camp I was introduced to Oh Fransson with the cat block. 
I checked her out and love her quilts.
This whale quilt is perfect for my cousins little grandson Louie.

Happy Birthday

Last Saturday our middle child turned 18.
For her birthday she requested a Moroccan themed tapas dinner party with 12 guests, including family and friends.
The first thing that came into my mind was 'bunting'.
I've always wanted an excuse to make bunting.

QBBC Week 5

Great pinwheel technique where you put 2 squares right sides together and sew around the outside, cut corners to corners then sew your half triangle squares together.
Simple and fun.

Another One Finished

Myself and 2 friends made this quilt top a few years ago.
It's from the material obession books - the Melbourne ladies.
So much fun to make,  a real puzzle.  You really need a design wall for this one.
I machine quilted down the wedges then hand quilted with pearl thread, big stiches around each ring.

As far as I know the others 2 are still unquilted And I'm not offering to do them.
