This is my very first post for the new blog! I've been writing study guides, marking assignments and helping people to study for their early childhood education degrees for the past few weeks. Haven't had much time to myself to sew my quilts. When I got back from my holiday in America on August 03 the work had really piled up. I moved to Sydney on May 15 and still haven't finished unpacking. I want to take my time and get it right. My new flat is delightful but the colour scheme is very bland ( I am not a beige person and detest being told "Oh you can put anything with beige to brighten it up! Yucch to that is what I say"). However I'll have to do just that till I get it together and have a bit of spare time to pint it.One of my friends (Natima) is helping me to set up the blog. Hers is a sight to see! Have a look at it : notjustnat
Above is my Firefighters' quilt which I made after the bushfires. The red strips are meant to be the fires, and other strips are made from leafy fabric and sky coloured fabric. It is my favourite kind of quilt - a scrappy one. My machine quilter found a great continuous pattern of flames. It suited the quilt beautifully.
Enjoy it all! Myra
