Work in Progress Since 2004




My memory has been jogged and I have pulled this out of a cupboard. It is another example of our great Australian Dancing Dollies quilt. I will get more information on it as soon as I can.

Meanwhile, I think I can feel my creative juices flowing. Unfortunately while in the middle of making this quilt, I had a bad fall while walking my puppies in Brisbane, Queensland, one cold, winter morning. This fall resulted in a prosthesis in my left shoulder and arm. I am all better now, but it did take me a long time to recuperate. Then we made the big move to Western Australia, so this has become a forgotten little piece. I did drag it out one day to show Julia but of course it was put back in the cupboard and there it remained until today.

Oh, well, let's see what happens to it - maybe back into the cupboard again! Best wishes all.

Lurline, thats far too pretty to go back into the cupboard. You should get it finished at least to the top done stage, looks like all it needs is sashing and perhaps a border.

Lurline, You must be an appliquer extroadinaire. The quilts in the last 3 posts are so beautiful. Are the Dancing dollies pieced or applique, or maybe a combination? I think a tutorial would be nice, unless it's a copyright thing. Hint, hint.
I'm glad your shoulder and arm healed, sometimes the Doctors are amazing. Does it still bother you at all?
Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog.
