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!

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.
