Summer Mini ....

Cheryll (aka Dory) hosts a lovely mini quilt swap and this is my third (and last) one this year....

A Summer Mini Sampler for Lyn (no blog)
she has received it and got back to me to say she loves it....



This design is by Kaaren from The Painted Quilt  though I did make a slight Ausifying adjustment... the bird was labelled Red Breasted Robin and I changed it to magpies....


Cheryll had kindly sent us some labels to use...


there was some little coasters she sent us to... but I put it in a very safe place.... so safe that I can't find it!! grrrrrr

The Wisteria is flowering beautifully.... I always feel it is over so quickly so take lots of pictures....

This is my front entrance at the moment....


.... it's a bit like living on Wisteria Lane ....

Righto, Gotto Go.... setting up a quilt display today.... so fun... I get to cuddle quilts ... lots of quilts...

Hello Fiona,

What a great idea to Aussie up the design. The maggie is just perfect. Lovely Wisteria, ours has decided it is not a stick and has buds now.

Happy days.
Bev.

The summer mini is gorgeous Fiona! And I love the fabric you have framed it in. I can just imagine your Wisteria in a few years - the verandah will be dripping!
