Still Down In The Garden...
Time For Basting...

Australian Quilt Market...

Australian Quilt Market was fantastic! It was wonderful to catch up with so many customers and see all the delicious new products that are coming out too. I felt very proud to be part of what has become a very well organised and significant event on the Australian Quilt Calendar:

I was so excited to actually have my quilt (well, quilt top) complete and hanging up for display. I did mention last time I wrote to you that I was on a deadline. Well, I didn't quite make it and had to phone and say, "Can you just leave me 53" of display space please!? I'll be there to hang it as soon as I finish the borders!" So I guess I did make it:

I have of course used lots of Rosie's yummy Grandmother's Flower Garden fabrics by Lecien and lots of my other favourites like Flower Garden and Basics. I hope that you enjoy adding your own name when you stitch this quilt, as  you can see here in Block 8. In Block 2 there's a spot for the year that you complete the quilt, (suggestion: leave that blank until you complete Block 9! LOL):

I just had to use the delicious 'Green House' for the borders:

I must rush off now as I have to make up a quilt back, race down and buy some cotton batting, and baste! As I put the finishing touches to each pattern over the next little while (the patterns will out in a few weeks) during the working day, I shall be sitting and hand quilting at night time. I have a lot of fun ahead of me and I shall keep you up to date!

It was nice to chat at AQM. I am happy to say the quilt is even more spectacular in the flesh - so to speak.

Leanne.... it's just amazingly gobsmackingly awesome! I so wish I hadn't already bitten off more than I can achieve with boms! Maybe I'll just have to get it and put it away for my child free retirement days.... given that I'm only 31 and have toddlers... that gives me a long time to get into gear!! ;) It's amazing! Well done! Can't wait to see the quilting!!


O my Word!!!!! Stunning!!!!


It is wonderful!!!!! :o) Be proud!! !!

May Kristin

Oh my, Leanne! I was blown away! it is absolutely stunning! I knew it was going to be beautiful when I saw what you were working on on Hurtigruten, but not like this!
Gail was right, this is the best you have made!



I LOVE IT TOO!!! When can I order the patterns.
