Blooming Doilies

It's about time I did a proper show and tell of my Blooming Doilies quilt. I'll probably waffle on a bit because I want to jot down all the details so I don't forget them but you can always just scroll through and look at the photos if you find my ramblings too wordy.

Wattle Day and a few links

This here's the wattle, It's the emblem of our land
you can stick it in a bottle, you can hold it in your hand.
Monty Python

Not only is it the first day of spring in Australia but the first of September is also Wattle Day.
Wouldn't you agree that wattle is the perfect flower to welcome spring with it's flowers that look like sunshine.

Things that add colour to my days

My international jet setting cover quilt arrived home today. 

A photo shoot seemed to be the right way to welcome it home.

Here, there and everywhere.

Thanks for being patient with me while I've been absent, I could give you a zillion excuses but they don't really matter. Today is a new day. The sun is shining through the trees, The birds are happily chirping, and here I sit writing a blog post.
Could it be that my mojo dry spell has broken and I’m back in the world of blogging??? Gosh, I hope so.
It’s funny how real life just takes over sometimes.

I love blogging, I really do...

YoYos a la Mode in print.

Hi everyone - 
We've kidnapped Rachaeldaisy and have been chasing butterflies and following rainbows. Now we've taken her on a picnic in the woods so we'll be away a little bit longer.
She asked us to say a big thank you to all those have checked in on her to make sure she's alright. It's nice to know she's missed. Be assured it won't be long until she's back to her regular blogging.

In the meantime you can check out the current issue of Quilters Companion #74 ...

where on page 76...

you'll find the pattern for her Yo-yo's a la Mode quilt.

Beautiful styling as always. Quilters Companion always manage to find the right place to photograph their featured quilts. 

Quilters Companion is an Australian publication so although it's easy to find in our local newsagents I'm not sure about the availability of the magazine overseas but you can download copies digitally here at Zinio.  

You can read more about this quilt and how it won second place in the Modern Traditionalism category at the Australian Modern Quilt Show in a past post here

Thanks for being patient and see you soon for lots of blogging fun!!

Travelling quilts

I've often said my quilts have more exciting lives than I do. They certainly travel more with trips to exotic faraway places, performing in their in colourful textillian ways. If only they could tell stories of their adventures, I'm sure they would keep us entertained for hours with interesting tales. All I can report is the parts of their journeys that I do know about.
