Thankyou so much to the Quilted Crow girls for the gorgeous pattern Hearts and Crosses.
Love their work and love their style.
Plan on making this over the Christmas break after the cot quilt is made (nearly) in between all the other happenings :-)
Happy Stitching All

|Zaras Quilt showing edges and scrappy binding|
So Girls all I can say is that instead of blogging I have been sewing. Not a good excuse but I even have Ross's quilt as a top too. Have been trying to stay off the computer a little, because time flies while you are on it and the things that you wanted to get done don't get done.
The pineapple quilt is pieced on the back too.
Happy Quilting :-)

Pie in the Sky is a top too. It is in two pieces as I will quilt them separately and join to become the Queen size quilt that it needs to be.
Close ups. I do like those little hexagons in the centres
Will post the other quilt soon. Have a great week all. Cheers Lynne

Still Free Wheeling thanks to Meredithe on Pomegranate and Chintz blog.
I have been having fun. I think that my blocks remind me of Lily pads. Not all the hexagons are sewn down but am getting there Must say I am enjoying these blocks and the little hexagon covers all the bulk in the centre. The last joining seam for the two halves has been ironed open.
Keep Cool everyone in all too sunny South Australia.

Rob’s Christmas/Birthday present. Isn’t it gorgeous. Love the painted Roses on the bed. Would you believe he acquired the Manual over 10 years ago and now he finally has the machine that goes with the manual!
Gardner Sewing Machine Company was established in Hamilton, Ontario Canada in 1871 and went out of business in 1886.
This machine is called the Improved Gardner and is their first model.
All the photos can be enlarged for a closeup view.
Happy New Year to All
Cheers Lynne and Rob

I have to say I love these templates. They are so easy to use and are I used my Roller blade. I think my Pinwheels will have another personality with little hexagons in their centres.
The Pie in the sky quilt is progressing nicely. Am putting blocks in groups of four before I group them as a big Quilt.
Enjoy yourselves and all that wonderful family time.
I know my machine will not be turned on for a while now as Family Time takes over. I had my day of Fun though
Wishing all a Wonderful Christmas
and a Bright, Happy and Creative2013

Sorry no Photos but I am reporting in to say that while I did not make a nearly insane block this week I did sew B17 into its row. I also have now nearly made all the blocks for the Queen size Pie in the sky quilt I talked about in September 23 post. Some are still in units and two thirds still need to be sashed but it is starting to take real shape. I am happy.
I am also just loving my new Bernina 820. She is purring like a pussy cat. I can even set my block up underneath the arm ready to sew. All that room is fantastic.
