Ta-dah! Finished!

Green Tea and Sweet Beans, so far - that's blocks for 2 months! Looks like it will be a bright, happy quilt.

Top right - Pink Penguin's Reversible Bag ! I must say that on the particular day I made it, the instructions just didn't work for me and I'm happy to admit it would have been 'me' - so I fudged a little and it has turned out a really cute little bag!

Yes, its finished! All pics of 'My Studio' - I promise this will be the last! Now it is all so functional and practical - fabrics organized - it has been a long drawn out procedure - I love it now and intend spending lots of time there, such a light, bright, fresh room!




Uh, oh - yes, I have been naughty again and signed up for another BOM! It's from Material Obsession by Sue Ross and called Tradition with a Twist, I think! Check out my Sidebar if you are interested - Ive chosen Pretty/Contemporary.
I'm off to Melbourne to the Quilt and Craft Fair tomorrow evening - Melbourne is the opposite side of the country to Perth! A few days break will be lovely and I'm so looking forward to seeing what's happening on the east coast and seeing the display of over 300 quilts!
Until I return (with all my goodies) - stay safe!

Kris Meares - Tag Along Teddies said...

Hey Lurline! Oh! Your sewing room looks wonderfully tidy - sure wish mine did! It's still kind of full of all the stuff that will go back into the kitchen now that the major part of the reno is over ... I just have to get motivated! SIGH! I only cleaned my sewing room a little while ago - how unfair! Hope you have a ball in Melbourne and find lots of goodies to take home with you! Bear Hugs! KRIS

limpingalong said...

Your room looks lovely and inviting, Lurline! Happy sewing there.
Hope you enjoy your break in Melbourne and find lots of goodies to tempt you!

Nanette Merrill and daughters said...

My gosh Lurline you do good work. Everything is so beautiful. I saw your picture on Red Pepper and Cabbage quilt blogs. I pulled those blogs up and without reading thought right away - There is Lurline! Made me smile. I love your projects.

Angie said...

I'm so impressed by people who can quilt. I tried to make one once but it would be putting it mildly to say it was a disaster.

julieQ said...

All your blocks look so fresh and pretty, and your sewing room too. Have fun at Melbourne!!

Bronwyn said...

Hi Lurline - it was lovely to have met you at the Melbourne Craft fair! Hope you had a wonderful time in Melbourne, but you are probably happy to back in your lovely sewing studio! Your BOM looks just delicious!

Erin said...

Your new table looks fantastic and i love those bright colours in the BOM!

siv hege said...

I love your sewingroom, and the quilts hanging on the walls. I am thinking of adding a ekstra room to my sewingroom. Wouldn`t that be great?

Janet said...

You are very lucky to have such a nice space to work. I wish I had a place I could devote to just quilting and sewing. I love the Green Tea and Sweet Beans. The vintage fabrics fit the pattern.

I love the bag and blocks. I'm envious of your beautiful studio. Hope you have a great trip.
