QBSA from Kerry

Kerry was my partner in QBSA and on return from retreat these arrived in the post. This block is actually 18" square and the one below is 8"square. Kerry had looked up Blankets of Love to see what I was doing so made one. She apologised for not finishing it off but I can do that and when I send it off she will be given credit for this one. 

This is a small memory block for the quilt.

Retreat a bit late...

Last Friday saw me heading to Toolangi  for the Kilmore Quilters retreat. I took hand sewing and no machine... silly mistake. As you can see Sue was very productive and got her Angry Ladybug quilt finished and it looks fantastic.

This is the view from the sewing room, I didn't attempt the high ropes course that is in the middle.

What a beautiful place to eat lunch. The surrounds were just wonderful and the weather all weekend was stunning. Sometimes the sewing room was a bit too hot as there was a wood heater in the corner and I was sitting very close to it.

I was lucky to be lent a machine and I bought two fat quarters and made this mug bag as a gift for a friend... just need to put a press stud and button on it, then buy a mug and maybe make a coaster with the left over fabric.

I sewed 3 AHHH's, 4 to go in the same design and then see what it looks like.

I also finished off the bottom right stitchery and sewed the one on the bottom left. I love Michelle's designs and I am slowly working my way through this one.
