Mum did make this cute lap quilt though. Well I am not sure if they were orphan blocks or a WIP, but they came from the stash of a fellow quilter, Lyn who passed away. Lynn's husband donated her stash to the quilt group and they have been putting it to good use making quilts and the plan is to sell them, a lovely appropriate idea and I am sure a cathartic process for Lynn's friends.
This is a close up for the awesome free motion quilting my mother does!
On the way home when I got the opportunity to stop at the patchwork shop at Culburra, I brought this panel, somewhat influenced by the previous photo and the need to have another boy cot quilt!
And I also came home with these fabrics. The bright blue will be great for making more I Spy quilts. The coffee print is for a coffee cosy...its not on my list "to do", but should be!
Sandy, the lovely lady who owns the quilt shop (Old Culburra Store) also has an orange tree and gave me a huge box of oranges and was most disappointed she couldn't make my husband a cup of coffee and show the kids the model train set that is inside the shop! It was a good thing a) we had stopped for a coffee the hour previously and b) I didn't know about the train set, or more time and money would have been spent! But now I do know I will be stopping on the Dukes Highway at the Old Culburra Store again!
Lastly these are the bright fat quarters I brought the week prior from the Fat quarter lady, who visited our quilting group....they were complete bargains and perfect for more cheerful kids quilts...well that is my excuse!
Happy quilting, Sue SA.
PS apologies for lack of commenting and posting, I think DH has sorted my recent IT problems, hopefully that is the last of them!
