Five rows also feature semi-detached applique, created with double-sided fabric shapes attached with stitchery.

We had a wonderful day...lots of delicious food,cakes,goodie bags,laughter and best of all being surprised to see Sue,Tracee, Marg,Tania and the ladies from  Gisborne. 

                        I did borrow these photos from Sue's blog.

Hannah's Garden

FNSI another fun evening spent with all my lovely friends, thanks  Wendy for  hosting another great night.

I began Hannah's Garden -One Day in May Creations by Melissa Grant, several months ago with a few friends.
I decided to go with the same or very similar fabrics to the original as that was one of the things that drew me to the design which by the way I think is absolutely gorgeous.
The first panel.......Birds in the treetops, appliqué birds and leaves combined with embroidery and semi-detached flowers.

Confetti design by Irene Blanck.

I finally made a decision to machine quilt Confetti myself and this is what I ended up with. I'm very happy with the quilting especially the borders. In the photo you can't really see the full effect the cable has on the quilt, but it does frame it beautifully and highlights the flowers and especially the vase section.

Sarah's Sampler (1855)

Yesterday I went to the Melbourne craft and quilt fair at Melbourne Exhibition Centre with my lovely friends Shelly and Lyn.  We had a great time catching up and looking at all the new fabrics,quilts etc on display. We stopped for a quick break and as I was walking back to our table with my coffee who should spot me but Sue from Kiwi kids well that made my day it was absolutely fabulous to catch. Then after another couple of aisles I spotted Sue having a coffee with Marg more great was that.

 As you all know I have completed a couple of projects and also started a few new ones to keep me busy ( Happy hehe..).I really had no intention of purchasing anything new but when my eyes spotted Sarah's Sampler Quilt displayed in all her glory I knew I had to buy her. Shelly had the same thought and we both went straight over to Marg Low's stand to feast our eyes. The rest is history hehe...........


Happy stitching..............
