And now for some quilty things................

I always look forward to Wednesdays.
I take a patchwork group at Somerset Patchwork and Quilting in Mount Waverley;
a great and diverse bunch of ladies with many and varied talents.
No names or pack drill but some lovely photos so that you can see what we get up to!

 a galaxy of three inch lemoyne stars in the making- the background hasn't been chosen as yet
These little flowers will become 3 inch lemoyne stars once the background has been chosen.
Karen Styles of Somerset Patchwork has produced a set of templates for the star
and if you complete a star a day
(excluding Christmas and birthday)
you end up with a beautiful and very special piece of work and hopefully a few less scraps in the stash

tiny hexagons - very nice
This is a paper pieced project - a little quilt for a rocking chair.






Nearly Insane in  Red

A Dear Jane is a work of art in anyone's language

Cabin Carnevale in shades of Mauve

very close to finished
The last photo is of a project started a few years ago at Primarily Patchwork
We've swapped a striped border for a pieced one, using all the elements within the quilt.

I'm very proud of my group. As you can see they are a mixed and creative bunch!
(except that they laugh at me when I suggest that we could learn applique at some stage)


  1. You have taught me to be more adventurous, thank you.

    And if you didn't mention applique then we wouldn't have to pull faces! :)

    1. You're very welcome; in regards to applique I believe in all things in moderation -
      applique is a bit like medicine - not always pleasant but good for you
