Quilt weekend photos, yes, we actually did a lot of work!!! 10 ladies,( 3 stitching, 7 sewing). Sorry this has taken so long but I have had a lot of issues with this new format and cracked the sads trying to get this post to upload, fortunately going to work tonight! Heaps to report, will get this one out of the way first. Above is pretty much the view from our accommodation. Below is all the work we got done for the weekend.
Can't shift pics, so this is my boy and his dog.
Lise at work on her Leanne's house design.
Robyn has finally pieced all her horses.
I was showing the girls how to do a dis. 9 patch at the last minute...this is it in pieces.
Robyn's log cabin was finished, a shaggy ready to snip, Helen;s I think, and a bushfire block quilt ready to go to it's owner...yes, they are still being delivered, a lot of the victims are only just getting houses now.
My dis. 9 patch pink throw on the left, Jane's french (?) hand printed quilt blocks on top and Anne's baby quilt at bottom.
Close up of Jane's blocks, bought per block i think.
The top right are some more Jane got overseas, love the orange sashing, bottom house/bright was mine, a baby quilt.
My batiks on left, Anne's pinks baby throws on right.
My "Coming home" log cabin on the right, someone's stars on left. So, on my completed list....one log cabin, one little girls cot, three batik throws, one pink dis 9 patch and the boys 9 patch without running seams up. A big weekend! Below, Robyn finished the binding on her log cabin, machine quilted in woolsthorpe. So, a busy weekend for all, i swam in the ocean...in the rain, to make it pretty much an annual event. All booked for next year.
In regard to photos. If you like my photos I am flattered. Feel totally free to right hand click and save for later viewing. You may even like to drop me a line and tell me what you like, I love that. If however, you are going to tell the world this is your work or utilize my photos for a less than noble purpose, then please remember you have only been given one soul...and you should look after it wisely. Tracey Tutorials: I have occasionally given a few of these, they include: 1.Log cabin chooks 2.Using shirring elastic in clothes 3.Houndstooth check blocks-(progress photos and tutorial). 4. My free pieced roses. Drop me an email/link with a picture if you try these, I like to see people's interpretation.
Albert Einstein once said,"There are two ways to live your life. One is as though nothing is a miracle. The other is as though everything is a miracle."
I try to look at my life like this and I think a blog is fabulous to make you highlight the good things that happen everyday.
I am a 30 something quilter (former Primary teacher) happily at home on the farm- both kids are generally at School so i get some "own" time.
