And a close up of the quilting. It's a panto called Camellias by Timeless Quilting Designs.
So this is great for my Stashbusting......until..........................................
A friend and I went touring today and somehow 60 mt / yards found their way back to my house! Now I know it sounds a lot but it really, really isn't. I can justify every last inch of it.....all but 3 mt / yards is for backing for more bushfire quilts. It takes 7.5 mt / yards of backing for a queen size quilt. So even when I'm being a bad girl I'm being very good!
And the 3 mt /yards? Well it was a lovely stripey oriental which will make up very quickly in a strip style quilt for my step son.

Anyway here are some pics of the quilts sent off. My friend Nicky (no blog) had these to send
Ria (no blog) sent this lovely 30's quilt
These were really quickies. Found this backing fabric in the stash and so decided to quilt it up. Made two of these.

Had lots of WOW fabric and rarely use white now. Great with 30's fabrics but too bright for me now. (Mind you I recently started a red and white quilt). So this is the start of a queen size pinwheel quilt.
Next I cut up for two nine patch quilts......but as QS quilts are needed I'll try to just make one out of this. Have put this on the back burner while I concentrate on quilts that are quicker to make than a nine patch. Limited red amount but it will work out.
Ironed up all my brights that I have accumulated with the intention of making kids quilts. And boy will this be bright when it gets done.
