Pink For Foto Finish





Just a few of the pink images I have taken over the last week. For the first time since posting photos on Foto Finish I
actually kept an eye out for subjects that would be relevant to this weeks topic.

The flowers photos were taken on Monday while out at Wilkinsons Castle at Waiiti with my mothers quilting group. This venue is not actually a castle but a fabulous old Chapman-Taylor house built around an internal courtyard. It is available for hire and the Inglewood quilters usually spend a day out there each year and invite other groups to join them. It was a lovely day and several of us took the opportunity to do a beach walk after lunch. Because I had such a great time with some lovely friendly quilters I have now decided to join their group although I am not sure how often I will be able to attend their regular quilting days which are held on two Mondays each month. I am not working this Monday so will make it to the next get together.

The other two images were taken at WOMAD on Sunday. I blogged about this event a few days ago with more photos included.

Your shots are 'in the pink' for sure! What kind of flower is the first one, with the white on the back of the petals?
It sounds like you had a wonderful day!

Two Years Of 12 x 12 Art Quilts

A group of local quilters has recently completed two years of making 12" x 12" art quilts -completing one every two months working to a selected theme for each one.  I really enjoyed this experience and am now taking part in a 20" x 15" challenge working to colour themes.  We have three months to complete these. 

Here are some of my 12 x 12 quilts
"Temptation"  -my idea for this was "The Grass Is Always Greener" and it is made in my favourite style of sewing small crumbs of fabric together. "Perspective" "Nursery Rhyme" - "Rain Rain Go Away" "Autumn"
I will need to track down some of the other images on my computer and will put them in another post. 
It has been a long time since I last posted but we have been having a conversation about blogging in an on line group I belong to and it has inspired me to have another go at this.


This is my first 8 weeks of Quilty 365.  This will be linked back to
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.
