Looking for the Positive!

As I alluded to on my last post, 

I have another finish to share! 

And appropriately, on Day 52 of our 6th lockdown,

I've called it "Look for the Positive".

Personally I am thrilled with how pretty this is!

I don't often use only pastels in my quilts, but this one 

makes me smile!

I was also very thrilled to find these patches of violas 

planted on the grounds of the school where I live!

My sister Helen kindly gave me the vintage sheet as a 


Simple grid quilting

I used a sample block that I made with her for the 

label on the back!

As I write this I have only one WIP......

(I know, don't hate me!)

I am hand quilting my Peppermint Parade in the 


Finally I wanted to share, with just you, my loyal blog 

readers,  a photo of my new grandson!

Finnley is the spitting image of his brothers!

Happy days!

Simply Finished!

I kept the quilting simple on my Cloverly quilt...

and a quick photo shoot to show it off.

I had to be quick because we are experiencing a cool 

and damp Spring, with typical windy days too!

Although it does look good in the fork of that majestic 

gum tree.

I'm hoping I can gift this to a dear friend, 

who is going to be a great grandmother soon!

Quilt #9 for 2021
Quilt size-43" square
Lifetime quilt #138

I'll be back soon with another finish!

Happy days!

Time to get quilting!

 I finished up "Cloverly" a month ago!

My LQS was having a fabric sale and as I am within five 


I was able to 'click and collect' this fabric for a backing!

Not wanting to purchase more than was absolutely 


I added some rectangles pieces to bring it up to size.

But in the meantime I had decided to make another 

scrap/stash quilt.

This is a free pattern/tutorial by 

Emily Dennis of Quilty Love.

It is available here:

It is called Scrap Stash Plus quilt- just perfect I thought!

I started pulling out some fabrics, being drawn to 

pastels for Spring!

It took no time at all to come together.

This one finishes at about 48 inches square.

So today I used up the last of my batting roll, 

purchased at the beginning of the year, I think to get 

these basted!

It will be great to get both these quilted and finished!

Then I intend to rummage through my dressmaking 

fabric and make something new for Spring/Summer.

By then we may be out of lockdown!

Happy days,
