Countdown to Nundle

It's only two more weeks and I'll be heading to my annual Nundle retreat. So that means busy times, I need to make two swap items, one for the day and one for "our bloggers". Won't tell you which one I'm working on today...but It's something I've really wanted to make for myself, and this is the third time I've made it for a swap...cest la vie 


Last week every spare moment, I worked on "fresh" a quilt designed by Camille Roskelley...this quilt is going to be HUGE...


I will have one very happy daughter when this is finished!!!

Focus and breathe

I've pulled out this quilt to finally finish it. Those that know me, know my love for handwork...I rarely sit in front of the machine...


The blocks in this quilt are 24.5".... And consist of 36 blocks...a slow process for me... I decided on 3 rows of 3, but after laying it on the floor for a final layout, I thought it needed to be bigger, so I've madly cut enough blocks for another 7 squares to make a 4x4 layout. This also means a new backing will have to be purchased as the current one will be too small. The things we do....
