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.

My First Post of 2016

Happy New Year!
Yes, I have been absent...for many reasons, health not being the least.
But here I am again and I'm so excited by my newest patchwork project.
I've always wanted to try this!

Fussy Cut Hexagons & Diamonds - English Paper Pieced.

To achieve this pattern I had to play with mirrors...


The idea of the mirror is to play around with possibilities and then to choose one.

The one above is what I chose for my centre.
I've had the pleasure of attending a one day work shop at Post Office Patchwork Glenbrook
under the tutelage of Anne Sommerlad and using her beautiful designed pattern.

What can I say? 
 I'm hooked!

  1. Hello Doris, happy new year! Your work is stunning, I can't wait to see this as it progresses.

    1. Thanks Kath! I'm amazed at how quickly the work grows.

  2. How stunning. I love EPP but don't think I can even begin to contemplate fussy cutting. There is no doubting that the results are really stunning but I'm always worried it will generate too many scraps.

    1. Ha ha, yes, the scraps! I'm not disciplined enough to throw out scraps...maybe one day.
      Thanks for dropping by Paula.

  3. Wow! Absolutely gorgeous!

  4. This is going to be a stunning quilt!! What an interesting idea of using mirrors! I like it!!
