I have had a 5 month break and some more sad times after loosing our 12 year old Boxer dog it is time to start crafting and blogging again.
First on the agenda it a visit to some of the the wonderful bloggers I follow. It is like catching up with old friends
Cath at cathquilts.blogspot.com.au has been doing some hand stitching on one of her projects. The little bear on her swing is very sweet.
Helen from helenspatchworkpassion.blogspot.com.au has made some beautiful quilted Christmas candle holders has had surgery. I wish her all the very best.
Karin has visited the Craft and Quilt fair and has purchased a beautiful Asian style panel by Robert Kaufman. To see the stunning pannel and the beutiful fabrics Karin has the purchased pop on over quiltyarn.blogspot.com.au
Congratulations to Rosemary who has almost completed her Farmgirl Vintage quilt. The quilt has an amazing range of blocks in it. knittingquilter.blogspot.com.au
I have been incridebly lucky this month. I had a win on the Melbourne cup and on the same day my beautiful daughter and her partner surprised us with a visit all the way from Darwin. They stayed for 2 days and I was able to get some answers about the design and colours for her quilt.
Her request was a modern quilt the brighter the better. As she is legally blind without her glasses so I can get why she wants bright but for me who tends to use lots of florals and subtle colors it is a bit of a challenge. I have thrown all previous designs out the door and here is the final design. The hexagons will be made from batiks to give the quilt the brightness Regan wants.
