Foto Finish - Blooming Trees



This was the view while lying beside the pool at The Three Brothers Bungalows in Legian, Bali.  I dont know what the tropical tree is but it provided nice shade. 

I am babysitting my two oldest granddaughters tonight.  Their mother (our daughter) gave birth last night to a gorgeous baby boy called Mason.  Mother and baby are doing really well.  The girls are talking to mother on the phone at the moment.  They cant wait to go home tomorrow and spend time with their new brother.

Congrats on the new grandson.

Pretty shot. It's still a bit cool to be lying by the side of a pool, but we'll get there soon.

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
"Spring"
"Vintage"        
"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.

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.
