Fog and wiggles

 

 


We have awoken to our fourth day of fog. Also this will be the fourth day our airport has been closed - luckily we are not needing to fly anywhere at the moment but have to feel for those that have their travel plans disrupted. I spent yesterday working on some applique on the Gingham Girls quilt I am making. Looks like it will be more of the same today.

This weeks topic for Foto Finish is wiggles. These photos were taken last year on a trip along the Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. The first image was taken of the coastline from a helicopter while flying over the Twelve Apostles. The second was taken from the land close to where the helicopter left from.

QUILTY 365

This is my first 8 weeks of Quilty 365.  This will be linked back to http://quiltyfolk.blogspot.co.nz/2016/01/january-quilty-365-linkup.html
I started my blocks on November 1st and have decided to sew them together in 2 week strips.  I am thinking that I will end up with too many blocks to make a well proportioned quilt so may have to incorporate the last few months into the backing -we will see how it progresses.  My blocks are 4.5" square and I am varying the size of my circles.  I am using scrap pieces of my low value fabrics for the background -even piecing many of the background squares to use up smaller scrap pieces.  As I do a lot of scrap quilting and love working with tiny scraps of fabric I am also making some of my circles scrappy.
I belong to a private facebook group of 50 fellow quilters and several of us are playing along with this project. 

Light Up Your Landscape - Gloria Loughman Class

A couple of weeks ago I took part in my first ever quilt class.  It was run by Gloria Loughman http://www.glorialoughman.com/
I thoroughly enjoyed the class and am delighted with what I have produced.  I am not going to bind it but rather put facings on the back as Gloria taught us.  This was the first time I had used a walking foot.
There were 20 in the class and we all produced very different pieces.  I am noe keen to get her books and try some of her other methods of constructing quilts.
