Only a couple of weeks to The Brisbane Quilt show and here I am contemplating what fabrics I want to look for. Now a look in my cupboards tells me I haven't even touched fabric I bought two years ago at the very same show. So I think I need to sew some of it so I can justify buying more. Isn't that clever of me? So making a very simple quilt with Jelly Rolls I got back then. Have never sewed with Jelly Rolls but thought I should buy some to see what the attraction was. These are all greens thou they look blue in the photo. Will get a better photo tomorrow. Made one like this years ago in reproductions.

Finally loaded Swoon and quilting it. Really can't remember when I ever made a quilt and didn't like it. But this one just won't grow on me. Don't even like my choice of quilting!!! But want to get it finished and will give it to an "adopted" niece who tells me I STILL haven't made her a quilt. She likes purple so this will keep her happy till I get a 'real' one done for her. And this will be a first for me I'm sure.......only bought the fabric in April this year, so to get it made and quilted and finished in the same year will be a first. ***********
