This month spent by again.... but we did have some lovely rain
Jacaranda's are blooming.... I love this view off a corner in our yard..... the blue Jacaranda's not so visible in the photo but we can see them well.... they are behind our white jacaranda....
This was my main finish this month.... an old UFO from hand printed blocks I got many years ago.... linking up to WOOFA and OPAM today... Thanks Cheryll and Kris
I backed it in white sheeting and gave it a black binding.... it will be a nice soft quilted throw...
I also made this little quilt this week! Pretty cute I think ..... not much will snuggle under than though... maybe a small elf.....
I just love these soft Spring William Morris fabrics.... I added the gold as the designs have just that little spot of gold in them....
Layer cake which I cut in four and then set gold in the corners.... it has made a good single bed size or topper for queen size.
Of course I have lots of little HST's from the corners... so perhaps another mini quilt in the future
Intense quilting on this panel was done..... it took me ages and at the time I was frustrated with my wobbly lines.....
but they don't show up too badly now it is all done....
A lot of time was spent stencilling on the design.... then of course slow going on the quilting....
but I love it.....
... and I adore the backing too.... I have chosen a rich brick for binding....
... should be a finish by the end of the week.....
My other finish this month was my new peg apron..... made from a vintage tablecloth
Here is a close up of the white Jacaranda... typical little bell shaped flowers ....
the black & white quilt looks so snuggly.
I love your blue jacaranda - but a white one?? - how spectacular it would be if they were the same height and mingled together?
oh well - I am not allowed a jacaranda - too much mess on the grass I'm told. sigh
All your work is wonderful Fiona... but I absolutely LoVe the "nature" one.
The quilting sets it off perfectly too.
Beautiful garden to enjoy everyday as well.
Thanks for linking up your WooFA..xox
Two beautiful Jacaranda trees , they always have a lovely show of colour.
So many gorgeous finishes this month Fiona and the quilting on the panel is fabulous.
Oh my! So many lovely finishes. I loooove your little quilt and the black and white one is so beautiful. I never knew about that range of WM fabrics, rather appealing. Well done girl!
I didn't know that white jacarandas existed. How wonderful! Unfortunately it is too cold here for any jacarandas.
All your projects look lovely, but the quilting on the "Nature" panel is fantastic!
I know I always say this Fiona ... but you do achieve so much! I love all your finishes but I especially love that little mini quilt - so sweet & such tiny pieces. Love the peg apron too!
Your white jacaranda is pretty - but I have a huge soft spot for the blue ones! Loe your "Nature" panel and yes, that terracotta fabric is a perfect binding. Well done on your other finishes!
So many beautiful finishes....especially the Nature panel...gorgeous work! Your white and mauve Jacaranda trees are a pretty picture. I love the purple mess every October xx
This month has definitely flown past, November seems set to do the same thing. Love your quit
Congratulations on your lovely finish. Love your mini quilt. The quilting on the green panel is just FABulous! Awesome work, lady! Love vintage tablecloths; they were made with the best cotton ever. I usually turn them into tea towels as they last the longest. Enjoy! ;^)
Congratulations on the lovely b/white finish as well as your other lovely finishes. The jacaranda trees are just beautiful at the moment.
Lovely finishes Fi! I love the new layer cake patterns....I just made a little table topper using one from FQS called "layers of charm" which uses layer cake and 5" charms........love the FMQ on the black and gray quilt! Well Done!
Wow! You have been busy. I love the black and white, and the mini.
And the quilting on the Grey and white quilt. Oh my goodness, beautiful.
Beautiful projects. Love the little mini, so cute. Love the white jacaranda. I'm surrounded by the purple ones so a white one would be nice to look at for a change. Hugs, xx
what beautiful finishes! Love your Nature quilt and the backing is so pretty, your quilting is amazing!!
very cute mini-clever you.
Black and white quilt is lovely and william morris too.
Didn't know jacarandas came in white. I remember they were in bloom when we visited Brisbane. They were so beautiful.
You finished some very lovely projects. The quilting on your nature panel is magnificent.
Congratulations on your finished quilt. Love the quilting on the other one. Stunning.
A great collection of finishes and I do love the jacarandas.
Love the NZ feel black and white quilt Fiona, your intense quilting is stunning, makes a great quilt, a small elf would be very happy with your Mini, the Morris fabrics top is lovely as is your peg bag, you have finished lots of projects.
It didn’t take you long to get those finished. The quilting on the panel is beautiful. You are your hardest critic.
