Sunbonnet Sue is so old she certainly looks like a vintage quilt, if not antique. The dear little thing has been with me since my early days of quilting and I can't believe I was lucky enough to get Thirties fabrics here in Australia then. I drag her out every now and then to lay out crockery and cutlery for visitors. I did my first machine quilting workshop on her with Lee Cleeland (Quilting Makes the Quilt). Lee is a great teacher and I learned quilting with the walking foot very easily, but have never mastered free-motion.
Here is my attempt at vegie growing - poor little beetroot - hardly worth bottling!
Southern Cross Quilters - Squilters are having an 1800 reproduction fat-quarter swap run by dear friend, Prue. We can swap up to 42 fat-eighths with no more than 7 of one fabric. I have prepared 20 so I am looking forward to seeing the 20 I will receive. All good fun!
Believe it or not - I'm off to another sewing day/luncheon tomorrow, so must do a little cooking and a few other chores.
'Bye for now!
