The beginning of the year has been rather busy, 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.
The quilting in between the applique is a mixture of random spirals, circles and feathers. I am using a polyester thread with a cotton look from Madeira. I am really pleased with he way the thread is looking.
We had a wonderful trip in February down the South Island on our motorbike. Soaking up the amazing scenery, there is something to Wow! you around every corner. Spectacular lakes and mountains everywhere. Even a quilt shop. The picture below is Mt Cook, the colour of the lake is a gorgeous turquoise blue.
I was teaching at Grandmother Garden in February also and had a wonderful group of ladies in the class. I am also looking forward to teaching a class this month in Rotorua, so I will leave you all with my lovely pictures of the South Island and get on with quilting my Roses quilt.
I hope to show you more of the Roses quilt in my next post.

Lately I have been sorting through my pile of quilts and have come across some of my long lost treasures. I thought I would share some of my memories of making these lovely quilts, cushions and table runners with you.
First on the list is the Wreath cushion, made quite some time ago now. I loved making this cushion from start to finish. It was one of those projects where everything seemed to fall into place just the way I had imagined it.
