Making progress

Hi, I am making progress with Margaret's quilt. It's looking really good. I've put in on point and have started quilting the squares. I've even found a perfect border fabric in my stash. Will put up more photos soon.

Its supposed to be easy

DewOk this is again a last minute job. My friends birthday is on 2 May and I want to make her a quilt. But I didn't want to buy any fabric so I thought I'd use this bunch of fat quarters. I've seen a quilt as you go where the sashings go through the middle of the block like this

So these are my fabrics but what do you think of the layout. I would really value your input. I'm going to sash them with calico so that will, be the backing fabric too. I will. Use variegated threads in the bottom on the calico and then friends off Margvarets can write a message on it too.

Can anyone see my last post

i woorked out how to add photo is using Blogger but I haven't had any comments so I'm wondering if it is visible.
I'm looking for a pattern for a quick and easy quilt to make for my friend Margaret who turns 65 in early May. Been thinking Quilt as you Go would be easier and cheaper. Any ideas?

Well let's see if this works

VMy friend Shirley told me about Blogger and it means you can use it to download photos onto My Fat Quarter! So here goes. second oldest grandchild had his 15 birthday. Cameron is the only child of my daughter Annette and hubby Brendan. Cam is an awesome kid, well, they all are but he's such fun. They're often like flat mates with limits of course. This photo was taken at Llaser Strike so the lighting isn't good but you can see how gorgeous he is.

 My granddaughter Olivia turned 11 last weekend. She Had 2 girls over for a sleepover!  Here she is just before school started in February within little brother Alex who will be 10 in June. My baby grandchild. There won't be any more. I shouldn't forget George. Hhe is grown up and do doing an apprenticeship with a plumber and is LOVING it!! I would never have guessed. Here he is with Cam at Chnristmas 2014. He had just had surgery on his hand after falling off his mountain bike at a skate park. The X-rays didn't pick it up at the time of the accident and it was 6 months before the Drs sent him for another X-ray. 

Well there's 3 photos so let's see if they transfer to MFQ!

trying to add photos

Well I wish I was a technological expert. I've been trying to download photos and update on my ipad but it didn't work. i think its because its an Apple. it doesnt have an opyion to choose photos.

so here I am trying on my mobile phone.  my computer is so slow!

well it worked though I don't have as many photos on my phone. it'll do for now. lol

so this is a photo of progress a week ago on my flying goose log cabin quilt. it's very bright and out there???

this is the quilt I made for Tim and Julia on their wedding day.

Starting again.

well, after a comment like that Martina haha. I love you my friend haha.

It's been two years or so since I blogged last so plenty has happened since then. I may just start from now haha small steps. Myra would be pleased with me at the moment,, I'm sewing often and if not sewing I'm knitting. At the moment I'm knitting hot water bottle covers for a friends birthday and my mum on mothers day. I'm making a quilt off Missouri Quilt Company  called flying geese long cabin, is really easy to make and colourful. My friend Tina is doing it too and it's amazing how different our blocks are and yet we have the same fabrics. I cut two jelly roll strips off all my batiks and divided them between us. Im enjoying being busy.

I will have to work out how to download photos on here again so bear with me. I'll come back later.
