Oh Dear ......

Quilt club was yesterday.... we had show and tell ...

I just love this Dear Jane quilt that was shown....


Lyn, the maker of this amazing quilt, hand and machine pieced blocks and then hand quilted the entire quilt.... it is a very big quilt... easily over the sides of a king size bed....

Lyn has been working on this beauty for 2 years

there is so much to look at... could spend hours and hours

... I am able to say with confidence that I was there when the last stitches were added.....

I worked on my Scandinavian Rose block... I got the twirl and the circle at the bottom done ....


it's hard to get much done when people are discussing edible underwear (????????????) 

... and I got to stroke and pat the quilt... that is Lyn ... I was trying to see if I could tuck it in my bag....


When I got home my new pattern by Michelle had arrived... I have so enjoyed her alphabet and couldn't resist the Christmas alphabet she has just done ... now to plan things to make...


... I am still working on my little secret project... adding a bit of bling now...


... and this little parcel needs to go in the post ....


Righto, Gotto Go.... it's a new day to play....

Lots of lovely things in this post and such a striking quilt..mmm a big bag would come in handy at that show and tell..what sort of fabrics did Lyn use?? are there a lot of solids or just small prints??

You would need a huge bag for that quilt! It's a very interesting colour scheme too. Love the bling on your secret project!
