My quilting Inspiration
The weather has cleared a little to enjoy the garden and see that spring is truly on its way. Here are a few pictures taken in my garden for you to enjoy.

OOPs not sure what this one is called, I was lucky to be given a cutting of this one and it has turned out a lovely shrub full of colour.
Now onto some of the pets. There are some camera shy pets missing, not matter how hard I tried my dog boy was not interested in having his photo taken. ( go figure ) he usually loves attention.

I can finally tell you all what has been keeping me so quiet !........ Iv'e been working really hard on projects for a book. I am so happy to show you the cover of my new book (Autumn Bouquet) coming out in August this year. Its been such a wonderful experience, something I have always wanted to do. It is filled with a great selection of projects with a range of small and large quilts, with applique techniques explained in detail. I will be so proud to place this book on my shelf along with all the other quilt books I own.
Last week we had a scheduled power cut for our area, meaning I could not do any quilting on the Roses quilt. This was the perfect time to pull my fabrics out and sort through them, folding them nicely and organizing them into colour baskets. I have been meaning to resort them for a while now. This was a great way to get reacquainted with my fabrics, finding all those precious fabrics that just make my heart race. Giving me ideas for my next project, another journey! Benny decided that would be fun and he loves to help, I think he secretly wants to be a quilter too.
I am now starting to quilt the Roses quilt. I am really enjoying quilting this one, today I am stitching in the ditch around all the applique parts to make them stand out. I am using a very fine 100 weight polyester thread. A selection of Wonderfil invisifil and Superior Micro quilter. I am using a selection of colours to match the colour of each applique shape.
