Amy, at Amy’s Creative Side, is hosting her fourth Blogger’s Quilt Festival. I have enjoyed looking at hundreds of quilts that have been entered in the past festivals and have been inspired by all those wonderful people. This time I have the opportunity to participate too, so am jumping in feet first. Here is my [...]
Just a quick collection of snaps today. The first one is a copy of a letter sent around our court by a new neighbour. The idea is that if you wish to participate in Trick or Treat you put the orange balloon on the letterbox. That way children only come to the houses that want [...]

Originally I thought it was going to be quite difficult to find anything around my home for this colour, but I was pleasantly surprised! This cute little [...]
Nearly there. Just finishing the binding!
I Spy quilts are lots of fun. I like the idea of collecting lots of fun fabrics to use in them. Quite often they are fabrics that you cannot find a use for elsewhere but still want to collect. And sometimes they are left from other quilts you have made. I decided to make mine [...]
I really like the sharing of ideas in all quilting groups and this quilt is one example of that. Our DIL attended a quilting class with some friends when she was in USA. She learnt the technique of making the 3D bow ties. When she was back here in Aus she was able to teach [...]keep looking »
