Just enough time for a quick post

Almost Wednesday evening here in NZ and I don't have to make dinner tonight! 
Eldest son is coming around with a huge Moussaka for us to share, so time now to put
this post in.

All ready now to sew on the inner border of my blue/green hexagon quilt,

the plan is to get both borders on tomorrow and try to sew a few more H blocks
cut  out today from the new KF, PJ and BM fabrics.

I'm almost there with the number of blocks needed for this quilt and hopefully will
have it all sewn up by the end of next week.

Out grocery shopping yesterday I visited our local book store to see
what was new on the shelves, I spotted this book

bursting with photographs of stunning quilts.
They cover quite a time span and I think any quilter
would enjoy this book. The name of the maker and date made, fabrics used and
measurements are the only details given but it's interesting
to look back at some of them made many years ago by
quilters whose names we know so well. You can see
that this came home with me!



  1. Gorgeous fabrics! And moussaka. Both are yummy.

  2. This quilt is jut beautiful? What size are your hexagons? I have some 3 inch paper piecing hexies here.. and they are pretty big! Thinking of how I can play with them.

  3. Your quilt top is so vibrant . . . LOVE the colors together!

    Must check out that book, too.

  4. Your hexies are gorgeous and rich looking...nice piece hugs, Julierose

  5. Wow a moussaka! When I make it (more and more seldom) it takes me all the day! I love your hexagon quilt and the book seems wonderful!

  6. It's always nice when we don't have to cook...........more time for other things! Funky hexie quilt........a colour explosion!

  7. Lovely saturated colour in your quilt top! If they start selling quilt books in supermarkets I will be in big trouble.

  8. great quilt! love those rich jewel tones!
    that book looks amazing

  9. I love your hexie quilt. Like diving into a beautiful cool pool of Kaffe and Philip Jacobs fabric.
