My first blog

Where do I start?  Well, I am currently working on a piece  for the Maleny Quota Quilt Show in May. It is called Featherwood Forrest, as the name suggest there are many feathers in this small quilt. The hand-dyed background fabric I purchased from Karyll Butler last year at the same show. It has  beautiful shades of green and I have divided the fabric up into sections and sewed a running stitch around each one to separate them. In the sections I  am quilting a variety of white feathers with different background in green thread. It is starting to take shape,  I will post some pictures soon. I have a class next Saturday, it will be great to catch up with the girls and see what they have been up to.  We have been working on reducing our scrap fabric stash by making a variety of quilt-as-you-go quilts. They are a little addictive, finish one and you want to start another, and it has not reduce my little pile of strips, I keep cutting up fabric that is a little tired looking or over 15years old . I have to get in and finish the baby/toddle quilt I started for B-I-L Kerry and his partner Sunni, they had little Jamie Kim last week. so cute and tiny.  Will post photos when we see them again at Easter.
