Last Night - Today!

Meet Lindley from Secret Stitchers! We are a newly formed quilting group meeting in a lovely, well-lit room of the Secret Harbour Community Hall. Secret Harbour is a beautiful seaside town on the shores of the Indian Ocean and very close to where I live.

Big smiles and a Friendship Quilt - love it and it lives on Lindley's bed!

A project of Lindley's taught in a workshop by Helen Rhodes, Textile Artist - though beyond my capabilities, I am in awe of Helen's expertise! It was lovely to meet Helen and another lovely Helen!

Carmen's chooks - I'm sure a lot of you recognize this great quilt. Carmen has beautifully quilted this and also lots of little beads sewn on the berries. Cute shoes, too!

Another gorgeous Helen with her beautifully appliqued and hand-quilted quilt!

Well that was last night - now on with today. I have started, well sort of, cutting out the squares for my Shaggy Fairy Quilt - on the right you can see I have added another piece of the fairy range by Saffron Craig - great Valentine fabric! The green - I think I will make a 'green bag' from this gorgeous fabric by another great Australian designer, pop across to meet Caitlin at Pippijoe.
Have a lovely day!
