What a WIP

As is often the case looking through my photos have found some photos of a quilt I have yet to even mention this one is one I am still mulling over - My Lotus Maverick Star with some Amy Butler grey

New Red and Black aka HF

Like my sewing buddy Theresa at Sew and Sews I have been having lots of fun with putting together my new quilt. It is using the reds and blacks I picked up in Melbourne back in May and I have a plan that it will be for G. Complicated patterns are not really my thing, as to tell the truth ,I am a bit sloppy when it come to exact corners etc. But this one is fun once your get your head around it and does look gorgeous when finished. Happy to finally use my red Amy Butler Lotus dots and circles - it must be the most fussy cut pattern in blog land and I am following suit.   Here is the fabric - block photo to come

Eastern Silk

Very excited to have finished the cutting and started sewing my Eastern Silk quilt. I bought eight meters of duponi silk in Vietnam last year for a bedspread for our bed. With it being very cold at the moment ( 6deg -cold for Adelaide) A has been asking where it is - so with the birthday quilts finished for the moment it seemed the perfect time to start . I so love the thrill of starting on a new project - the other WIPs seem to just disappear. Three nights sold and it is staring to come together. A good run at Sew and Sew tonight and I reckon flimsy finished by Sunday - but how do you back and quilt silk??? I'll have to do some research!!!
