quilt show

I had a lot of fun at the show! I didn't buy a lot but I love everything I bought.

Zombie Book and fabric purchases coming up

It has been a great week. I won a $50 fat quarter shop gift voucher from Melissa at Happy Quilting. How exciting as this more than covers shipping to Australia. Even with the exchange rate, fabric is cheaper in the U.S. Tomorrow I am going to the Sydney Quilt Show. I am looking forward to it. We actually have a small local quilt shop now which is great but they don't have a huge selection and as usual in Australia, it is expensive. I am making sure to make some purchases to try and keep it open. It will be great to see so much fabric and quilts all under one roof in Sydney.

I love this  tall tales block by Quilt with Kate. I have no idea what I am going to do with it. I might make a quilt with lots of different books.

 Finally I have made a Swoon block. Have had a lot of trouble trying to get a good photo showing the colours.
Now I need to decide to make a quilt for our bed using Swoon blocks or Sawtooth stars.

June OMG

Hopefully will get more sewing time this month. I want to quilt this Austin Modern Quilt from May last year. I have bought the backing fabric last year in anticipation of quilting it a lot sooner.
I love this quilt. I picked the colours based on Eden by Tula Pink.
Linking to OMG at Elm Street Quilts.

OMG for One Monthly Goal or Oh My God how much can it rain in one weekend! The photos are not the best and the colours look a lot darker than they are. The orange looks very red but everyone knows what  Carolyn Friedlander fabric looks like so probably doesn't matter. I will take more photos on a sunny day.

I took a photo outside to see if it was better and it wasn't which is not surprising as the reason we bought this house was how open and light it is. We moved here in September last year so have enjoyed spring, summer and autumn and are looking forward to winter (as much as you can look forward to winter).
