A Busy Week

A busy week in the shed this week with a few edge to edges done and a small custom quilt finished for Lyn.
The quilt consisted of 9 blocks with lovely machine embroidered butterflies.
I ditch stitched the borders and  background filled behind the butterflies with a free-hand feather and scroll.

To end the week I was lucky enough to go on a bus trip with the girls from "All about Sewing" at Charmhaven.

We ventured up to Belmont to "Belmont Patchwork Heart"...our first stop for some retail therapy.

I bought some flannel fabric to add to some I bought at the Newcastle show. I want to make a boys quilt with it.

We then went to "Patchwork by the Lake" at Boolaroo.
I bought more flannel.
Hopefully I now have enough!!
Happy Quilting

Charity Quilt Finished

Charity Quilt Finished
I belong to a wonderful quilting group, the Novocastrian Quilters Inc.,  who produce a lot of quilts for local charities.
This one is destined for "Harry's House" at Stockton , a respite house set up for families with very ill children who need a place to stay while their child is receiving treatment, or just need to get away.
The clever ladies in my group pieced it together and I custom quilted it with a combination of free-hand work and some Statler feathers in the triangles.

I am really pleased with how it turned out.
