Elaine's Legacy

I decided this quilt should be donated,

so when a work colleague said that her 

eighty-six year old Auntie Elaine was holding an 

afternoon tea for the Cancer Council....

I knew who I would give it too!

I had a great time FMQ those floral designs in the 

large white spaces.

I love the texture.....

even before I washed it!

And so crinkly after!

Oh, yes Elaine is the auntie's name!

And #4 for 2019!

Now onto #105!

Happy sewing!

I've been busy making quilt tops!

I'd seen the Meadowland popping up all over my 

Instagram feed and decided I needed to 

dive in!

I showed some of those initial blocks back here

The blocks are 16" finished.

Today, I basted it....

Finished size 48" by 64"

I've also made a scaled down version...

with blocks finishing at 12".

For this version, I went a little more scrappy for the 

corner blocks....

and added some thin sashing and cornerstones.

I think both designs have their merits,

Finished size 53" square
although this second one is my favourite! 

Have you ever made a different version of a pattern?

I'd love to know.

Happy sewing!

Quilting brings people together!

 Many longtime followers of my blog will remember 

this quilt, 

 made with the help of my bee buddies in the 

United States.

 I call it "Words with Friends"!

This is another version made by Heather in Canada!

She had emailed me back in October wanting 

permission to 'copy' it!

I don't know where the saying came from, so I have

no rights to it!

She did an awesome job, didn't she?

Happy sewing!

The coast, coffee and a concert

As you may realise from the title, 

there has been little in the way of sewing these last 

few weeks!

There's been a short sojourn at the beach..... 

Coffee in the country in a quirky cafe!

 And an Eagles concert!

I did happen to visit one of my quilts.....

 And I finished Mr Bear for my grandson!

I'm hoping, with the approaching long weekend, I'll 

have some serious sewing time!

Happy days!
