Lilly Pilly

Ok so this is Lilly Pilly finished. I decided to try my hand at raw edge applique and free motion quilting. I have never been happy with my free motion quilting and usually only use the stipple stitch which I can manage. So I decided rather than play with small test pieces I would bite the bullet and work on the actual project. Well..... I had so much fun with this one and in the end was very pleased with myself. I could actually relax and enjoy free motion quilting using something other than stipple stitch.


Happy stitching.....

Cutting Cloth 282 Wingrove St, Fairfield Vic.
Love this pattern. I have finally prepared it, now to decide on the finishing stitches and possibly some embellishing with felt. After enjoying a wonderful catch up with Dawn of  sew much to quilt I am eager to try free motion quilting but hmmmm ...not sure if I might be better off with blanket stitch.

Thank you Wendy of Sugarlane Designs for hosting another fun filled night with friends. If you would like to see what others worked on go here

Heartfelt by Margaret McDonald

I took advantage last week of some good sewing days to work on Heartfelt. I only wanted a smaller version of the original size and here it is. Sandwiched and ready for machine quilting when I get a chance.


I'm not sure what happened to the colour of the second photo :(

Friday I spent time working on my Floral Boquet borders. In the evening I joined in with all my wonderful friends for "Friday Night with Friends" hosted by lovely Cheryll, you can go there and see what everyone else got up to by going to

Floral Bouquet Top Border finished, working on the other three borders, although they will not be as ornate as the top border.

Also my apologies for not keeping up with all the beautiful blogs and leaving a comment.I had another flare up of diverticulitis which required a 5 day stay in hospital last week. ( those little terrors partying again) I am trying to catch up slowly in the next couple of days. Thank you to all my lovely followers and a big welcome to my new followers:)
