Old For Foto Finish


I think I am destined to be either first or last to post on Foto Finish at Cat Patches. If I am at home on Saturday evening Barbara's post for Foto Finish appears around 2030 or 2130 depending on whether we have daylight saving or not. Normally I am sitting in my lounge at that time periodically checking on blog entries. However once again I have been away to our holiday home for the weekend. We are in the middle of the whitebait season so spend quite alot of time sitting on the river side waiting to lift our nets and see what we have caught. I spend this time catching up on reading but also have my camera with me and end up snapping all sorts of images - the beauty of digital photography - they can always be deleted.

This photo was taken yesterday in our riverside shelter. I think these cobwebs qualify for old - I think they have been there for a long time.

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.
