A Day In The A Blue Mountains.

Thanks for visiting my blog. I welcome you to take your time and browse , visiting my bush garden and discovering the wonders of my city within a national park; Blue Mountains National Park. Via my blog you will travel with me through the successes, trials and tribulations of gardening on a bush block.

Movin' Right Along

One project on the go is never enough for me.  
As you might remember my Quilt Top post listed a couple of projects yet to be completed.
The bad news is that I haven't even started those yet!
The good news is that below you will see two projects that have come along since that post.
I've added sashing and borders to my Churn Dash quilt top.  Now all I need to do is add batting and backing fabric before I quilt and bind.  I will more than likely hand quilt this one.

I've discovered that I'm very efficient at "growing" my quilt tops!  What I envisaged as a lap quilt has grown to the size of a single bed quilt.  

This one was always intended to be a single bed quilt. Since the last post about the above quilt I've added the borders and machine quilted the project.  The binding is just being pinned here but I am happy to report that the machine sewing of the binding is complete, now to trim and hand sew.
Above is my third 'The Very Hungry Caterpillar Quilt'!  The first two had to be completed within a week of each other.  They were for my Honey Pie's two great nephews; cousins born within a week of each other in 2010.  They were almost identical quilts, except for the backing fabric, binding and the hand quilting.  I would have preferred to hand quilt this one but time is quickly running out and I do want to have it finished well in advance to it departing for the U.K.
My next major quilt project is to make two quilts for my twin sisters who turn fifty this year!  I have chosen fabrics for one....
