Well, after thinking about starting a blog, I have bit the bullet and decided to do one. I do a bit of quilting at home when I'm not running around being a Mum to a 3 year old and a 21 month old. Sometimes I do both! I'm hoping that by starting a blog about my work it will inspire me to do more.This is what I am working on at the moment. Its a quilt for a friend who had a baby girl back in May. Better get cracking! I'm going to add a boarder of purple 2.5 inch squares......I started blogging on the 28th of July 2006, nearly 4 years later I have cracked my 6ooth post! Above is a snippet of my first ever post. A lot of sewing and friendships have been made since then! The girls have grown a bit, we have seen Daz through Uni, moved house twice and moved to a new town the other end of Australia and I have brought a lot of fabric since then!
To celebrate I am giving this little mini quilt away. I have just finished sewing down the binding. It measures 13 x 17 inches. I used some left over charm squares from the Stacked Coin I blogged about in the previous post. And quilted in in my favourite quilting pattern of the moment, pebbles. Wouldn't want to do this all over on anything bigger than a mini quilt, it looks great but it took awhile!
I randomly pieced these together and had bit of a d'oh moment when I realized the two brown and green blobby bits were right next to each other. But then I really liked it, sort of draws your eye in.
So leave a comment below. Don't have to answer any questions or relate a favourite memory or anything like that, just pop out of lurkdome and say hello. I love reading everyone's comments in any post, makes it feel like I'm not talking to myself. I'll draw a winner from the random selector thingy on say Wednesday. See you then!
