My First Quilt

Have you ever been over to Camille Roskelley's blog?? It is well worth the visit - I love it! Camille is the designer behind the Thimble Blossoms range of patterns - to me, they are like 'scrapbook quilts'.... SOOOO different and SOOOO nice! She has also designed her own fabric ranges with her Mum, (Bonnie from Cotton Way) - Cotton Blossom and the new range Simple Abundance which is due out in September (and I cant wait!!).

Now Camille and Carrie are both running the 'Parade of the Quilts'! They want to see your very first quilt and the most recent! So, here is my very first quilt...... Everyday Angles by the 'Chook Shed Pattern Co.'! It is definitely not perfect, It is not that straight, when I stitched the blocks together, I used a large machine stitch (BIG mistake!!) and they kept coming undone! I actually had it professionally quilted as I just could not part with it! I have it over the futon in my sewing room, so I do see it all the time!

And, here is my most recent quilt! Ace of Cake's and the fabric range is called Cotton Blossoms - by Camille and Bonnie LOL!! I totally *love* this quilt, I have it on my Coffee Table in my lounge room!

So, there you have it! If you would like to be involved in this fun challenge, pop over to Camille's blog and read all about it...... there may even be a prize!

Since coming home from Evandale, I have not done too much! We had a bit of a thunder storm here today, perfect weather to sit and stitch........ so that is what I have been doing....... I think I am getting what Cathy describes as 'Couch Butt' LOL! But, it wont be long until I have a finish!
I hope you have enjoyed your weekend
