Last fat 1/4

The last of my fat 1/4s in the Birthday swap has arrived
Well worth the wait
Thank you Wendy
Not one but two lovely fabrics and some lovely little extras
I was very spoilt for my birthday
And a BIG thankyou to Cheryll for organizing Iam sure a lot of time goes into these swaps

Sewing with Wendy and Friends

Some months ago the girls in my quilting group all made a couple of blocks for a charity quilt The only stipulation was it had to be 12 inches square
No one put their hand up to quilt it so Maureen and I travelled to the next town where they have a long arm quilt machine at the Community House
We had a great time playing around with it and were pretty happy with the finished result
I will probably end up doing the binding
At a cost of $16 I think I will be using this machine again sometime

And last nights effort
Looks a bit wonky in the photo It isn't really
Another block in my Lasting Legacy block of the month quilt featured in Patchwork and Stitching magazine
Thanks again Wendy for hosting

Just been playing around and Yippee I managed to get my little owl to stand the right way

I have recently finished this runner
A Michelle Ridgeway design
Very pleased with it, though I just noticed I put  one heart in side ways
Did you  know that the Amish  make a mistake in a quilt on purpose because only God is perfect
Believe me I do not have to do it on purpose

I made an owl for a little girls birthday
