I have been published..Down Under Quilts

The quilt I made for my friend Jorge last year  is published in this month's Down Under Quilts magazine! 

The photographs were taken on location (Portugal) by another mutual friend and passed to
the magazine editor.

When I made the quilt I had not been approached by the magazine so it was a nice surprise.

This is the cover of the magazine.

Small projects

Lately I have been doing little projects but didn't get a chance to do a blog post to show you what I have been up to.

I made two bedside table runners to replace the crochet ones I had been using for quite sometime.  I still had these blue fabrics from a previous project and would have been such a shame not to use them up.

They turned out so well and I still had quite a few blocks left so I decided to make a table runner for the dresser to match.  I didn't have enough fabric for the border but it still matches the smaller quilts.

 I love playing with my scraps so I made this cosy for my pencil case cup.

Another view with a cute button.

 More scrap playing and ended up with this cushion ...

 And 4 more mini log cabin blocks to add to the ones I already have.
Autumn is slowly making it's presence and I love it... my favourite season...
My garden is still blooming.


And I continue to enjoy my cosy studio, even in the evenings...

Lynne's Caswell Quilt

My friend Lynne and I decided to make this quilt together. The plan was to make one block a month but she has been so inspired with the blocks and the fabrics she has now completed quite a few blocks in such a short time.
This is my second block...

But all of these below are hers. Go Lynne !!!
Absolutely beautiful !
