Xmas and New Year has come and gone in a whirlwind. It's been a wonderful time spent with family and friends. I have been fortunate to have both my sons home visiting over the last month, so time spent sewing, blogging and posting on social media has been limited. I have been trying to soak up and enjoy having them around before they head off on their next adventure, which means they will be leaving NZ again. Time spent with them is always precious.
I do have some exciting news on the quilting side of things, I have a new quilt pattern in the next Quilt Mania issue #123. The Quilt is Tavern Reds, it has a mix of applique and piecing. With four repeat applique blocks, I used the wash-away stabilizer applique method for these applique blocks. You can find my tutorial on this method here its under the tutorial tab on the Sharon Keightley Quilts website.
I love the quilt on the cover ! I hope you have your copy.

Today is a good day, I am in my happy place at the sewing machine. My machine is cleaned and oiled, with a new needle and I am ready to go. I plan to get busy finishing the flying geese units for the final border on my Vintage Nine Patch Quilt.
