One more of everything.

Trying to keep up with a bit of everything.
I stitched the applique on the first block with the basket. There are four blocks like this and I'm going to use the same fabrics for each one.

The  next block for Under the Cherry Tree. I'm still managing to get one sewn each month so this is number 7. Maybe the next one will have fewer leaves.
and two more Civil War Stars. This week Woven Plaids. Learning the history behind the fabrics is an added bonus.

If anyone is looking for me, you'll know where I'll be.

How Time Flies................

April has been a busy month with a couple of family Birthdays, Easter and a trip to the Melbourne Quilt Show.
I finally took a photo of my GS quilt hanging up in his room.
A quilt in progress, a pattern from the workshop with Marg Sampson-George. I have had this lovely antique floral fabric for a couple of years and didn't want to cut it up too much, so this pattern was just what I needed to show it off. I need to find a fabric for an inner border to go between this and the 9-patch final border.

I enjoyed a trip to the Melbourne quilt Show last week and  I bought some more Japanese Taupe fabrics. I want to make another quilt using them, so I bought suitable pieces for backgrounds.
 I got a couple of FQ from Lu'cello's and some fine wool for stitching my Sue Spargo's BOM which is coming along beautiful but unfortunately I can't show you until the BOM finishes.
This project is keeping me very busy with all the embellishments Sue adds to her quilts.
