this week

This week went by so quickly...days were taken up!
Sunday was quilt group day...catching up after the Christmas break...seeing what everyone had been making.

Wednesday we went to Brisbane for my husband to see an ankle specialist...they said the same as the doctors here.
I've have been stitching on my butterfly garden quilt...block 8.  Worked the lavender..now stitching the patchwork blocks...a little time consuming, but the finished effect is great.
Two fat quarters I bought yesterday and 2 balls of pearl cotton I'm going to do some big stitch quilting.
I finished my Late Bloomer quilt top...I just need to iron it before I take a photo.
I'm going to quilt it with the pearl cotton...haven't decided which colour yet.  I washed the backing the other day so now just have to find a free day to put the layers together.

The quilt in the homespun magazine is machine quilted...but I haven't tackled machine quilting on a large quilt.
