Making Progress.

It’s cold! I am trying to adjust to the quick change around from being hot and wearing short sleeves, to swapping into sweaters and shoes. This is only in a matter of two weeks.

Time has been well spent finishing off a quilt top.

Sunburnt Quilts 2015 - April (1)

This is a Viv Robinson design. Lots of raw edge applique. I have to check every block to make sure I have not missed any detail, then plan the quilting. (Just found a reindeer with-out eyes!)

It uses lots of fabrics from a variety of ranges from Lynette Anderson – plus a couple of others.

So, lots of thinking to be done.

The next part of the post is for Shez and Fiona who wanted to know what shopping I had done at AQC.

The photos will explain all.

I need to increase my supply of wool for these applique projects. A good aim for the next few months!


Have a great week and keep dry and warm


Cheers, Karen
