I am on my way down to the Australian Quilt Market in Melbourne and have been SO busy trying to complete my latest quilt. I am trying to do some hand quilting but have had to relent and do the majority on the machine.....lucky I don't get carsick....and lucky my husband is happy to drive ;-) here's hoping I complete the hand quilting before I get there ...a 9 hour drive does help!
My fingers have been working to the bone trying to get this ready for the Australian wholesale quilt show. Of course I thought I had plenty of time, only to find it has all evaporated! I am now quilting madly...wish me luck!
...so I have changed the arrangement of the borders, and have decided to add more appliqué
I am adding a few small bits and pieces here and there....my favourite part! I have drawn up 14 or so images to go in an outer border....
....still some stitching to do!
The centre of the quilt is almost complete....now it is time to decide where to go next....decisions decisions....oh how I swing about on that fence! Wish me luck with my decision making...or lack thereof! ;-) Anni
...well, not new exactly, as I was working on this when my new line of fabrics arrived on my doorstep. I did my usual and started something else with the new fabrics, just so I could try and juggle 6 projects at once...oops....so, here is the start of what I was working on BEFORE my 'For a Girl, For a Boy' range arrived... ..and some piecing... ...I am creating something a little whimsical and a little soft with a little applique, piecing and stitchery. I'll have more to show soon Until then Anni
Look at what I just received in the mail!! Nothing like the bills and boring bits AT ALL!! Now my fingers are really itching to stitch... My new range named About a Boy, About a Girl. It was originally going to be all about Boys, but Henry Glass (with whom I design fabrics) wanted to see the girl side as well, so I ended up creating both! The Henry Glass contingent have sent me samples to create with....just enough to go CRAZY heheh....
This range is due to be released in late October/November, so keep an eye out! Hopefully I will have a few new patterns....there are already a few free ones on the Henry Glass Fabrics website.
