More lovely fabric

Today the mail brought a 3kg bag jam-packed with lovely big pieces of fabric for our quilts. They came from the stash of Anjii, who started Quilting Down Under yahoo group. She was a lovely person who died quite suddenly a few months ago. Her friend Rosemary sent me some of her fabric for our orphanage quilts, So thank you so much to Rosemary and to Anjii.

This quilt was suggested by Jackie and made by Cathy. I really like how it turned out - the dark blue is a great contrast to the various flower fabrics!

Inspiration by Ricky Tims

I had my Ricky Tims Convergence Quilts book out the other day, to make a wall hanging. Jackie experimented with the Harmonic Convergence using some ugly-ish fabrics, and it turned out so well we thought this would be a great centre for an orphanage quilt. So I found some pretty fabrics and had a go. A few borders and some charm squares later, and here is the finished product. I think I'll do this again - It was fun!
