The heat here in Auckland is wreaking havoc in the garden
I think these will be the last few blooms on my sweet peas!
Wish you could smell the scent - sensational!
Two posts ago I had a squirrel arrive in the studio - that particular one has decided to go
back into hibernation, but a little friend stepped in
and it's quite a change for me!
This photo is from a Judy Newman book
Quilts for life made with Love
and she named it
Into the Woods.
Very old fashioned and definitely subdued but a few days ago
I was looking through a photo album which contains
the one and only photograph of my paternal Grandma,
she died when my Dad was 15yrs so of course I sadly
never knew her.
Had she been part of my life I like to think that at some point
I would have made a quilt for her.
I'm making it now.
This is going to be a simple Hourglass block, no Dresden Plates
and in honour of my Grandma will be known as
Starting off with triangles, four of each fabric
and ending up with three trays full including the one below
just going on the wall to see if I like the feel of them - I do - so I'm going to
carry one and I'm feeling the need to see the end result quickly.
When I have the full amount stitched then I can play with placement.
However, the thought suddenly hit me that I needed a border fabric to
fit in with the fabrics, after a quick hunt in the stash I found one which I think
fits the bill.
The lighting for these two photos above is just shocking, apologies
but I will have two more up to date ones in my next post!!
Just to stress that the quilt above is a one out of the box for me, here are a few of my new
fabrics from Kaffe Collective 2020
back in a few days with my diamond quilt all quilted and bound,
see you all then.
