New Year - New Design

I thought I would have a play with the the new design features of Blogger.  Lots of fun!  Found all the colours I love and want to share them with you.  Hope you don't feel the need to put your sun glasses on!  But I LOVE colour and the old colour scheme was getting a bit dull.

The lead photo is my Rail Fence quilt, which is about to be featured in Australian Patchwork and Quilting Magazine.  I had this quilt machine quilted by Elaine from Quilting in the Vines  at McLaren Vale, South Australia.  Elaine did a lovely Baptist Fan pattern which I thought was perfect contrast to the straight lines. This was my first venture into commercial machine quilting, and it will not be my last.  What a time saver!  As the quilt is going into the magazine, and Elaine's business would get a "mention", she was pretty pleased as well.


  1. The salmon colored background is delightful!

  2. I love baptist fan quilting. I'm doing one by hand right now and I have a scrappy top that I'm going to do on the machine in the fan design, a first for me. Your blog is great. Mine is so boring, but every time I try to do something, I loose things....grrrr

  3. Boy! Thats a very unusual pattern. I like it alot.The colors are very pleasing......

  4. I like it too. Love the fabric and I think it looks nice on your header.
