It's a finish.....

Presenting my lovely blue bird quilt


Quite different to any I have done before 


I've never done so much white before ...


... and I've never done blocks on point before...


It's a wallhanging so the stiffness with the heavy quilting works well...


This design is by my friend Christine, sadly she does not have the pattern available as it was done some years back and the originals disappeared with a crashed computer.... I was lucky enough to get a photocopied set from her and some personal instruction... Thanks Christine... I love this quilt... 

At quilting group today I continued with my needleturn project... as it was Melbourne Cup day we had a TV and some sweeps on the go .... I had no idea how it all works and no idea what horse I was backing.... but my horse came in first so I won money


since I paid in $3 it's a pretty good return!

Righto, Gotto Go... better hide my winnings incase Hubz wants to share ....
