|I chose the plus design.|
It's a lot of fun to make and makes good of the design wall
|I subtly ask her what her favourite colour was.|
Tourquoise - not my favourite colour and not one I had much of.
Now I am rather fond of it.
I am so pleased with the result.
|Cross Hatched quilting 1/2 apart.|
Gives great visual and tactile textile.
|It's hard to see but the entrance to the base says|
Welcome all to David and Marise's Wedding
|Great sight seeing the soldiers marching in lines|
|Our accommodation for the weekend.|
The Officer's Mess
Not the wooden bunks we were expecting.
She looked beautiful.
Just like she stepped out of Downton Abbey
|The happy couple|
|Today we were taken on a bus tour around some of the training grounds.|
And one of my lifetime dreams came true,
We saw the Kaimanawa Horses.
|The base is massive, larger than Lake Taupo and a little smaller than Singapore.|
|Mad D was working on L's block of the month|
|Mad L made a couple of blocks.|
This quilt is going to be amazing.
|Mad S made this gorgeous bid for a baby due very soon.|
|Mad me started work on a cushion ordered by a friend.|
|And show and tell from D.|
This is her block of the month quilt.
All finished and looking fantastic.
|I loved making this quilt.|
At the workshop they had fabric for sale, not just Kaffe's.
When I adked Kaffe if I had enough different fabrics, he said, you can never have
Too much, so took me shopping. One of his recommendations wss a hideous pumpkin fabric
Which works beautifully.
|The longer this quilt top sat around in the wsiting to quilt pile the less|
I liked it, but I new I would always finish and keep it as Kaffe has actually touched it.
|To get it finished, I quilted it simply in large squares.|
The size of the smallest squares.
|I decided to back it in kaffe fabrics, thimbles and threads, the local quilt shop,|
Had a sale on, and now that it's quilted and bound.
