And a boy quilt!

Jo gave me the "creature in a bottle" blocks for this, so I made the blocks bigger with bright fabrics, and added the sashing and the very appropriate border. Thanks so much Jo, I would never have made these
Some little boy will be thrilled!

Pretty pink and green

A charm pack and border, augmented from our stash, has made this quilt very pretty. Diagonal squares again - it works well!

Pink Stars!

I tried a new pattern for the latest girly quilt. Cecile Whatman of Unique Stitching posted it on her blog, and i thought it would make a great quilt for a girl in the orphanage. I was really pleased to find the beautiful purple fossil fern for the border in my stash!

Quilts have arrived!

Yay! the latest quilts have arrived in Zimbabwe! Only three boxes, not four unfortunately . . . maybe the other will still turn up . . This is the first time this has happened, so its not too bad a record.

Hopefully we will get some photos when they are given out next week!

Iddybiddy Designs

I just received a great parcel of fabric from Wendy at Iddybiddy Designs - my order plus some extras! This is by far my favourite aussie online patchwork store! Great prices, very efficient and helpful, and always some extras included, especially if Wendy knows you make charity quilts.

Thanks Wendy!
