The housework, I'm pleased to say, is being neglected in favour of another special birthday quilt.
I'm making this one, but won't say who for just yet.
It uses a jelly roll and the central part came together quickly. I had a bit of a search for the peeper, border and backing, but that's sorted now.
One of my local group's days out was to St Paul's quilt show in Ipswich. These 2 photos show only a small part of the quilts on show. It was a bit of a wet day (read - the start of the latest bout of flooding), but it was a good day out. Not only a quilt show, but an art show and a lovely lunch on the verandah of the historic manse. We also went out to the Queensland Quilters annual picnic in May; this year held at Rosewood. No photos = slack blogger. We also checked out a members new home at the coast as well as visit to a nearby shop.
I'm in a secret mini swap. This is all I can show as the recipient is sitting very close.
I want to use one of the tools I have been accumulating. It's a Creative Grids strip ruler to make half square triangles. I think I have to practise a bit more. I'm left handed so I have to work out the best way for me to approach it.
There are interesting conversations going on about me that I want to join in. Also it is the Biggest Morning Tea meet for the Cancer Council fundraiser so that means yummier food than usual to eat.
So people, I'm off.
