This is a very old project I started middle to late 1990's and I had all the applique cut out and ready to stitch.
I still like the pattern but not sure about the fabrics as in those days we couldn't get much in reproduction fabrics here in Australia ( or maybe I didn't know about them that much)
Anyway while away in Melbourne I bought two backgrounds and started stitching the first block, I think I will have to add some gold to lift it all, hmmmm or I might just stitch one block and see if someone likes it better the me, grin.
The next pictures show Sophie's first quilt, laugh that is what she is calling it ( just turned four) she cut up some of my fabric squares ( from a swap for my Tumbler quilt, sorry ) she glued them together, cut out some paper pictures and glued them on top.
Her first quilt, love it.
The next picture shows a little quilt I have just stitched, I saw it first on Cyndi's blog and left a comment about the wonderful sashing fabric.
Cyndi emailed me and said she has a little left and would I like the kit, well yes I did.... happy dance.
We had a swap, Cyndi wanted a Australian Patchwork magazine and I got the wonderful little kit. Cyndi goes to shows in the US with all her wonderful patterns and fabrics, go and check out her blog.
Thank you again Cyndi, I will hand quilt this little beauty.
and the picture below show all my purchases I made while in Melbourne, oh dear I think I will soon have to have a Garage sale for Quilters, to much stuff in this house.
