Gossip in the Garden is finished!

I have a finish-yay!!! And when I say a finish I mean a real finish, quilted, bound labelled and gifted!


I made this quilt as a BOM through Elm Grove Patchwork. I loved the fabrics that Lenora chose, I made just a few changes by adding in some soft lime green and more yellow fabrics. I also put a blue framing border in, I got that idea from the Friday Threaders group (thanks!). I met up with Lenora at the Australian Quilt Convention last month so I was able to show her photos of the quilt. I also met Annie Downs, the designer of the quilt, there and showed her photos too - oh the joys of having a smart phone!


Anita from Hillside Quilting did a great job on the quilting...








I'm a bit disappointed with the photos, they were taken on my iPhone and they look fantastic on the phone and my iPad mini but when I put them into Blogger they loose their sharp definition - anyone have any suggestions?

Cheers

Castlemaine Appliqué Group exhibition

Last month my sister and I drove up to Castlemaine for this year's Appliqué Exhibition. It was great to be able to view many beautiful quilts up close and personal, so grab a cuppa to look at some that caught my attention for the fabrics, design,use of colours,skill, quilting and/or techniques. Enjoy!


























































'til next time
