Gifts, blocks and Chris Botti

For those who follow my blog, its no surprise for you that I love music just as much as I love quilting. So today, for the second time I had the opportunity to see Chris Botti (American Jazz trumpeter) live in my hometown of Melbourne.  The show was amazing and in the end I had a chance to have a foto taken with him which made my day.

Now back to quilting ...
I have been re-arranging some of my linen cupboards and found some old quilts I made quite a while ago. This one I made 10 years ago and its machine pieced and quilted.   I always love red and green quilts.

Here is a closeup of one of the blocks.

I'll take more pictures of other old quilts I made and will post on future blog posts.

This week I purchased a few fatquarters of some modern looking fabrics, which I have been using...

in the block of the month  hosted by Craftsy. I made 3 blocks this week.

I am having fun playing with grey and yellow, which are combinations I have never tried before.

Yellow is such a fabulous colour to add to other colours...

My friend Teresa sent me these blocks as part of the Farmer's Wife block swap we do. The fotos don't do its justice.

She made me this adorable book cover, which I absolutely love... I already had the right size notebook and it fits perfectly.

And lastly, I want to dedicate to all of you who read my blog and send me lovely messages regularly, this mauve rose, the foto which I took this morning in my garden.... its has a wonderful fragance.
