Welcome to Quilter on the hill

Yes, you've come to the right place but I have changed the title of my blog as I no longer commute on the Warrandyte bus  - instead I'm living the dream on top of a hill in beautiful South Gippsland in country Victoria. I've just changed the blog title but kept the same website address. After procrastinating on this for many months I thought this was the easiest. 

Anyway I've recently finished my Giant Dahlia top thanks to a workshop with Michelle Yeo at Gippsbeary Cottage where I found some gorgeous Di Ford Giggleswick Mill fabric for the final borders. Many thanks to Michelle for all of the step-by-step individual help she gave me to get that round peg into a square frame.

I've also been playing with some great red fabrics and cream shirtings to make HSTs for the border of Words to Live By. 

Thanks for your feedback on my last post on border possibilities. I'm planning to do a combination of HSTs & the black print fabric. Hoping to finish this quilt top by the end of the month for the 17ufosin2017 challenge.

Btw I'm also going to be on Instagram as I feel like I'm I've been missing out - might see you there!
