Foto Finish - Summer

It is none too summery on this side of the world.  We are forecast to have very heavy rain over the next day and a half starting sometime tonight.  I am suffering from a heavy head cold which has now progressed to include a cough.  I hope it clears soon and I dont pass it on to my husband as we are due to fly to Vanuatu next Saturday for a week in the sun.

This photo was taken last summer of one of my granddaughters jumping into our pool.

What a wonderful shot. I can almost hear the splashing.

Terrific action shot! Hope you get over your cold quickly. I had a nasty sinus infection a few weeks ago and it can just take it out of you.

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. 

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.
