Memories of the 2013 June Long-weekend
Sunday, June 9, 2013
We have had a lovely long weekend at my friend Rhonda's in Scotsburn near Ballarat. It was a lovely visit replete with food, friendship and bonfires. As gifts for my friend and daughter a few quilts were thrown in as well. They are very useful in chilly country Victoria.

I often find that quilts say things that you can't. Like I am sorry you are sad, or I hope you get better. And with the age I am a few parents of friends are dying and I find quilts are the perfect bunch of flowers. This one was for Leonie....

A good six months ago I was asked to make a quilt for colleagues son for his 16th birthday. We had a look at fabrics at spotlight and my friend wanted something the represented all of her sons loves, interest and heritage. working to a brief was new to me but I gave it a go. The defiant ekes we're a union jack, tartan, a Danish flag and music. And the colours were to be blacks, greys and white. Quite an ask but armed with the fabulous colour matched at Hawthorne Threads I set to work. Using the lovely Arcitecture range and some music prints I set to work. It was lovely to do, a challenge for me but Sam loves it and my friend is thrilled with results.
