A travelling quilt!

 I'm away on a little road trip 

but I couldn't wait until I got home to share my latest 


My lovely Aurifil threads!

Hard to beat black and white binding!

I'm trying to perfect the quilt swirl!

These photos are taken outside Lakes Entrance, in the 

east of Victoria, in a region called Gippsland.

I think the fold lines came from it sitting in the warm car on its little road trip!

I like the way the hexie shapes highlight the lovely 

Heather Ross prints.

There was a bit of wrangling getting those side 


pieced in, requiring some 'y seams'.....

 and maybe a bit of unpicking! #**!!

I'm not one to shy away from a challenge.

Maybe you can see the double rows of quilting in this photo?

These photos are taken in Metung, 

a beautiful fishing village long on my bucket list!

I have tentatively named it Violet Crumble but I will 

finally decide when I get home to make a label.

It's always nice to have a close-up of 

the backing and the binding...

And here's a better photo of the quilting lines, 

1/4" on either side of the hexagons.

Is there anything nicer than taking a quilt with you 

on the road trip?

This one certainly came in handy for afternoon naps 

after a long day of walking! 

I'm looking forward to getting home to start a new 


Happy sewing!

Lovely quilt & good to have a finish. Know a couple of those shots well and we were in Lakes Entrance a couple of weeks ago. Enjoy your coastal break, take care & hugs.

This quilt is stunning. I love looking at all the blocks.
Your photos are wonderful. You picked some great spots for your photo shoots. Definitely worth it.

Just lovely and I'm so glad you had a good trip.

So fun to see Violet Crumble out and about in your road trip. I think the quilting is perfect for this design, as it doesn't distract from the fun fussy cutting that you did. And of course, we're all jealous that you are visiting such picturesque places. :) Congratulations on a wonderful finish!

Y seams......oh dear!! But you seemed to have done brilliantly. Love all the colours and prints dancing in your Violet Crumble quilt. How fun to take it on a road trip. Love all the fabulous photos.
