Hooley Dooley!

 This quilt seemed to name itself......

While I was working on it, I thought of this fun 'play-on' 

words, and it stuck!

The backing was lurking in the back of the fabric cupboard

I spent some of my recent fourteen day quarantine 

making this quilt.

I think it took me three weeks from start to finish.

Today I was released from 14 days quarantine....

and with the promise of a sunny morning,

 I set off for a short drive to take some photos!

Boy, it felt good to be out!

The bush setting was perfect, I think!

And a little water....

As I was heading home, I saw a pretty children's 


and took a couple of photos there!

I love finding great backdrops, especially when I don't 

have an agreeable quilt holder around!

Quilt #8 for 2021

Quilt size 47" square

Lifetime Quilt #137

Happy days!

Deco Delta

is the name of my latest quilt finish! 

The weather has been cold, wet and windy the last few 


Couple that with our lockdown means indoor photos will 

have to suffice today.

I decided to hang it above my bed to get a feel for it 

hanging as an art quilt.

I quilted a few sparse straight lines, 

and finished it with some Perle hand quilting in some of 

the blue/green shapes.

I also decided I wanted a clean look to the front so used 

a facing to bind it. 

The quilt finishes at 50" by 45"

This is quilt #7 for 2021.

Now it is looking for a new home!

Happy sewing,

Moving on...


Once I had my bucket bag complete, it was time to 

decide what to work next.

I probably could have started quilting my Deco quilt, 

as I had the backing prepared, using leftover strip sets..

but I didn't have the motivation!

I had been sorting through my stash, selling some 

'no longer loved' scraps of fabric on Facebook...

which unearthed some long forgotten favourites.

So I started cutting and piecing....

limiting my palette to gold, brown, orange, rust, teal, 

navy and green,

Or probably more simply- no red or purple!

I like to use a black and white photo to check how 

balanced the block placement looks.

I still have many more blocks to make to get a decent 

sized quilt. 

I hope to be back with a flimsy soon...

Until then...

Happy days,
