How Gorgeous Can You Get!

I certainly feel like doing cartwheels, oh, I wish I could! I have just received this October's BOM, Green Tea & Sweet Beans plus a pic of the finished quilt - I love it, love it, love it!

I remember now why I was so taken with it the minute I saw it and this is the first pic I have to

to remind of of the reason - it is a delight to receive each BOM and now I can't wait to get them all and have my own quilt!

Here's this month's fabrics - and the hexie block will be done! Plus a tulips block.
Down Under Quilts is in the shops and what another lovely surprise - congratulations Robyn of Daisy Quilts - just a little sneak-peak for everyone to see. Australian girls just can't stop - we are on a roll - this Issue 136, will be a must have for a lot of you - there is another gorgeous quilt on the cover by Kathy Doughty of Material Obsession - the mag will pop out at you! Though I am not really a contemporary girl, I think I could happily live with this cool quilt quite easily! To you, too, Kathy, congratulations! I think I might have a little scrounge in 'My Studio' before I go out to spray my roses, AGAIN!

No, no, no - not mine - isn't it just a gorgeous rose, though! It's Bonica - I bought one yesterday now to keep the diseases and bugs at bay - not normally a really bad problem with roses here, but it is the weather - maybe a little tipple of Seasol in the sunshine will be just what they need!
Pretty, hey?
Happy Day!

Just love that quilt Lurline. It is so happy. You know how I said this morning I was going to get into the sewing room well it did not happen! One of those days. Tell me how does the Bonica rose keep the bugs at bay?? I noticed mine are having a major aphid problem this year and normally it is not an issue
Happy Appliqueing :-)

That quilt just makes me smile! I could look at it all day. It's one of those where fabric and pattern compliment each other so much. Love your little stash of fabrics. My eyes went straight to the lime fabric with words on it!!!

I'm so pleased to see a photo of the Green Tea & Sweet Beans quilt! It is indeed a wonderful reminder of why I signed up too! I think I'll hang the photo up in my sewing room when my copy arrives. Such a gorgeous quilt!!

Miriam said...

well, that is a very bright colourful, joyfilled quilt!!! Yummy fabrics.

Bonica is a beautiful rose. I have it in my garden. It produces lots and lots of bunches of small soft pink roses.

Dena said...

I love this BOM quilt. I've always wanted to purchase one of those BOM kits, but I'm afraid of making a mistake and not having enough fabric. LOL Beautiful roses. I love roses and wish I had enough direct sunlight in my yard to grow them.

Cybele's patch said...

Stunning quilt. I really admire you doing all that appliqué. I love it but I am no good at it. The roses are beautiful Lurline.
Feeling better again?
