I have enjoyed reading all 4 Issues of the 'Irish Quilting ' magazines.
The premier Issue I found particularly good. The photos are amazing
and the articles are informative.

I decided to make the quilt ' Mind the Garden' using my
Morris Garden Fabrics. A fabric line I love.

Stitching the binding on a quilt is a relaxing time.
Your creation is complete. I will now write in my Quilt Journal
the lessons I have learnt and the joy while making the quilt.
Happy Quilting,
'For beautiful eyes look for the good in others; For beautiful lips,
speak only words of kindness; and for poise, walk with the
knowledge that you are never alone.'

Christmas Blues
You feel the cool!
This could only be why
I have picked this style
right out of my pile.

Its been so hot this summer-
Birds perch on the window sill
of my studio, listening to the
humming of my sewing machine

I sew away with my 'Blues'
feeling the cool of the Christmas
all in the mind - at peace with the fabric
......at peace with quilting.

Have a pieceful day,

I love machine quilting. The quilting design is so important, for me, it determines the mood of the quilt. As I am working on a challenging project, I find a break of 'free form' to be so relaxing and energizing. The fabric used is 'The Morris Garden' by Barbara Brackman - Moda. Do you find there are some fabrics in your stash that you are reluctant to use as they are so beautiful?
I do....

We are half way through the year, before long Christmas will be here. Its time to start on the Christmas Quilt!

Happy Quilting and lots of Blessings,

We all tend to create a little box of comfort within ourselves. I love Christmas, its my favourite time of year. I decided to step outside my box with these beautiful Indonesian fabrics from Moda. The challenge...how does one put these fabrics together! Its going to be fun.

Reading through a Fitness magazine, I saw a 'Nike' advertisement.
