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.

This block took me a while. Notice the Rooster and hen in the centre block.
Cyndi I just had to have a play with those gorgeous Trade Winds fabrics. Added to my challenge was getting all the colours in the right place :-)
Have a great Week all Cheers Lynne

My Friend Nancy and I designed a dolls quilt for each other and made it into a little kit to share. The bird one is the one I made to share with her. The shape is different because it is the shape of an wertheim lid to a sewing machine.
This little quilt was a kit from BusyThimble made with the Charleston range. Of course the little Conversationals are my additions.
This is the gorgeous little kit that Nancy made up for me. She chose some of her favourite fabrics and of course that gorgeous apricot Sturbridge.
This little quilt was made on a Miniature sewing machine called a Little Worker or a Midget . It has a tine shuttle and I lost count how many times I had to fill it.! If you click on the link you will see the machine.
Have a look at the gorgeous quilt that Taryn is giving away. It is the most gorgeous Dolls Quilt. I love it. I would be proud to be an owner of this little cutie :-)
Also there are many other doll quilts that others have linked to so sit down with a cuppa and be inspired. Cheers Lynne
