A New Obsession

Last week I did a class with Wendy Williams at beautiful Cutting Cloth...
Wendy was a wonderful teacher and very inspiring and so my Round the Garden obsession has begun.

Here are some close ups of the quilt.

This is going to be so much fun.  The great thing is you sew together as many of the little houses, flowers etc before you attach them so it also a very portable project.

Dear little Henry has his first experience of the Melbourne Grand Prix and had a wonderful time. Matty Mingay even featured a couple of photos of Henry and his post has received over 1.7k views 
I do love a pretty dresden plate block.
And I don't think you could get a prettier version than those featured in this delightful and useful project.  The pattern is very generously shared by Bev at fabulous Flamingo Toes.  You can find it by following this LINK.  Enormous thanks to Bev for sharing it with us.

I'm off to gorgeous The Quilt Shop in Eltham for a stitching afternoon, lucky me.
Hope you have something lucky happen to you too.

  8. Oh I am so excited to see your new project, love Wendy's work. Looks like a fabulous day. Lucky Henry but with that smile not surprising !!!

  9. Henry has such a wonderful smile bless him, is he always that cheerful? What a lovely looking young man.
    I bought Simply Moderne for myself last week, with several other magazines destined for an ill friend and it was only much later at home that I realised how much Id paid for it!
    Some wonderful inspiration in it of course, what youd expect from a Quilt Mania mag and yes that cover quilt is a stunner!

  10. LOVE your new obsession - and not at all surprised by it. It's gorgeous.
    And Henry just gets more adorable with each passing day :)

  11. I am sooo envious of Henry. I am a V8 Supercar fan and I certainly recognise that guy on the left. I am totally gobsmacked looking at Wendy's work. AWESOME!

  12. What a cutie he is and could he smile any bigger? I love the garden quilt project...it combines everything we love; quilting, color, embroidery, and wool! What a talented lady. I can't wait to see yours taking shape...please share any progress.
