A new baby quilt for 2019. You might recognise some of the fabric from my squishies on my birthday this year. Some were in my stash and some were sent by some of you (sorry ....I can't remember who now) for use in Linus quilts etc. Thank you all! Rx

Very pretty, Rosemary. I am sure it will be well loved.

Gave a talk to my group on book covers and needed two more samples. The A4 file is a Carolyn Forster design from ' Quilt Now'. The diary cover is my design - applique with a bit of bling.

The above row quilt is an ancient UFO (I think it's in my to do 2011 list!) Mostly rows by some PP forum members - I think the top stars are by Kirsten. Birdhouses by Angela, then trees by Maggi B. Friendship stars by Tessa and houses by Marian. Then pieced strips by Jan Mc and final row by myself.

I had started to put it together years ago by the flip and stitch method onto two layers of red fleece blankets but I'd miscalculated and ran out of space so put it away as it was a nightmare to unpick. I got it out at the weekend, unpicked on Monday night and spent Tuesday working on it. This time, I put the top together first then used the serpentine stitch on my Pfaff to quilt the sashing first, then around the outside border. Then I stitched around the outside before trimming up and machined the binding down with more of the serpentine and added another lot in the border. Last night, I sat and hand tied back. It's already been claimed by my youngest as a topper for her bed.

I'm very happy with this one!

The quilting group I belong to have just finished a quilt for one of our local charities. The design is called Tsunami and I thought you might like to see the finished item. I suggested the fabrics and then coordinated the making of the blocks then I put the top together. Another lady in the group long armed quilted it and then I put the binding on. It is approx. 80"x80"

It will go to the charity next week all being well.

Lovely, vibrant quilt Fiona. You put me to shame as mine is still pinned to a sheet! One of the rows I received was much shorter than the others.

Lovely group quilt Eileen. It looks like 'Storm at Sea' so Tsunami is an appropriate name. Bet matching all those points in a group quilt was fun! Hope the charity finds a good home for it. You too put me to shame, as I have a Storm at Sea batik top waiting to be made into a quilt.

Happy New Year everyone. Hope your Christmas went well and winter is being kinder to you than our summer here in Canberra - 2 weeks of high 30C and then 4 days of 40C and over - must be getting old as we here are not coping as well. Love the quilting you have all been doing, especially those book covers. Sandy
