Fresh Start

Hi All

Its been a long while since our last Hello. So much has happened in our World since then, on the homefront & Globally; sew I'm just going to start afresh with a photo update. 

Grab your Beverage of Choice and Enjoy!

Update from Linda xx 

Mother's Love Rose

Josephine, my "Convict Challenge Quilt" of years ago was finally Quilted & 
I couldn't be Happier

EMMA MARY - a Judy Newman Design top is Finished and now waiting to be Quilted. 
She is very big, my 2 boys had trouble holding her up!! Emma is hand pieced.

ADELAIDE FLORAL SAMPLER top - a Michele Hill design is another finish and joining the to be quilted list. I had plans of this being a wallhanging and made it smaller, as no black bed quilts with Angus in the house! 
Adelaide is machine raw-edge appliqued.

GARDEN AT EDERVEEN top - a Susan Smith design. We girls attended a workshop a few months ago and were able to choose which quilt we started. I've modified mine considerably to be a small wallhanging; Ederveen is needle-turn applique. This can be found in Susan's Book: Quilts, Somewhat in the Middle from Quiltmania.

 
I made this little cushion, a kit from Cutting Cloth, which used gorgeous Liberty prints and a crochet edge. The second photo being in its home on my  Granddaughter's bed.

"Remembrance" - a spur of the moment decision to make this for my Brother in Law. I used the panel Remembering Gallipoli, and crafted the border from fabrics in the range. 
He was thrilled and had it hanging the very next day.

Now this one might look familiar to you. Little Sparrow another design by Susan Smith.
Finished the top in 2017 but not the border. I decided it needed to be finished properly so got to making the hand pieced sawtooth border consisting of about 400 pieces.
I love this quilt, its another for the To be Quilted List. 

And what's a post without Angus - it isn't a post of course!! 

I got to making a batch of candles over the weekend; mainly refills for me.
Have called myself Crown Jewell Candles

JulieAnn & I managed to catch up last week, at long last, if only for a few hours. 
It was very good for the soul.
