Part two because I couldn't load all my photos into one post for some reason....
This is Bliss by Bonnie and Camille. The 'cheater' fabric, and one of the nicest ones I have seen so far - not just rectangles or squares but lovely looking circles! I have two daughters and one has a quilt already. The other daughter sadly will be waiting a while for one because I have a number of other priorities to get through first, and her two quilts here waiting to be stitched aren't quick and easy ones. So, after consulting with her I bought 3 yards of this Bliss fabric, 3 yards of backing, some red for a frill and some binding. This SHOULD make up a quick and easy quilt for her MUCH sooner than the others on the schedule!
She is so excited!
I have trimmed and joined the top piece for this 'whole cloth' quilt; and need to prepare the backing and baste it!
A gorgeous range, love the colours and prints in this. Moda did a little 42 inch square quilt using this range and I bought a couple of kits. One kit I passed on to Kylie. She made hers up at a retreat last weekend and said I need to get mine done; so here it is. Super fast to piece, and looks gorgeous! So, thanks Kylie for the push to get this one done! I am sure it will be almost as quick to baste and quilt.
I used another green for the outer border, just to be different!
This quilt top, also completed in the past few days, is Northern Solitude by Holly Taylor made using the pattern Jellystone Park by Legacy Quilts. I bought this as a kit (minus the pattern as I already had it) from Sarah at Patchworks Plus. You may recall seeing this quilt when I started it, quite a few months back.....
Lovely colours in this. I have renamed this quilt Southern Solitude as once quilted it will be heading South, to my motherinlaw.
All three quilt tops laid out on the new loungeroom floor - making the most of the space while I can!
I have also been busily working on Matilda Station for my sisters wedding next month. The top is all appliqued and pieced, it is basted and I started to quilt it today. I have to say it is a MONSTER of a quilt and over the weekend I had two words for it.
I just get tired of working on the same thing especially when it is a BIG project.
Maybe some pictures tomorrow???
This week I am going to make a start on my Christmas secret santa swap stuff, should make for a refreshing change!
