Last week we had nice visit from Sarah and Phoebe. Sarah has moved to Perth so it is a special treat to get to share this quilt with her in person. For show and tell she brought in this beauty of a quilt that her sisters made for her. These girls have a nice flair and share their creative spirit despite the distance. Quilting with each other often makes us feel like sisters but isn't it nice when sisters feel like quilting for each other.
Sheena's been busy too. While her husband was over watching the footy in New Zealand she left the odd sock on the floor and set up the sewing machine in the middle of the house, turned on the music and got to it... She has set these vintage blocks together with new borders to make this quick cot quilt.
This second one has a vintage block in the center that sets the palette for the rest of the quilt. How Tweet!
It'd be a nice idea for a wedding quilt as well with the something borrowed, something blue, something old, something new story all in one item...but would the bride have to wear it down the isle?
Now, I am off to quilting today having spent the day yesterday at the Athletics Carnival which was fun and rewarding for my running man Sam. Hope that adds a bit of inspirational motivation to your day! all the best, kathy
