What does Xmas mean to you ?
Xmas here in New Zealand is about sunshine, the beach, bar-b-ques, holidays and spending time with family and special people in my life. This Xmas is extra special with both of my sons coming home from overseas, and a new baby arriving in the New Year.
Last night I had a wonderful impromptu visit from my lovely friend Anna she brought me the most beautiful bunch of flowers from her amazing garden. Such a special gift, I am truly blessed to have her as my friend. Which made me remember a block inspired by her Roses called Anna's Treasure from my Rambling Ways quilt.

Merry Xmas to you all
I hope you all have a wonderful Xmas filled with family and friends.

This year brings us to the Adelicia Sampler quilt, you have all been waiting patiently for the fabric requirements and start date. I am looking forward to seeing all the fabrics you choose for your quilt. Take a look here for the fabric requirements and my little video showing my thoughts while selecting my fabrics.
I would love to share with you the Adelicia Sampler as a Twelve part block of the month. Along the way I will be posting each month, all that I learnt while making the blocks. (I love how much this quilt has taught me) There are many of my favourite blocks included in the sampler, some you will recognize from my past quilt patterns. I will also post information of selecting the fabrics I have used, this is a great quilt to have you delving into your stash and finding all those reds you have tucked away.
The inspiration for this quilt came from a small picture of part of an antique quilt, made with the nine patch block. I think what inspired me was the use of colour and of course the wonderful use of the flying geese blocks in the border.
I hope you enjoy my pictures of this quilt.
