Layered and done!

Three quilts got layered today and that was one more than I dared to hope for.   First is the latest BOM quilt from Aussie Heroes.  Love this block.  It is called the Hot Cross Nine Patch and I think it is fun.  I have folded it so that you can see the backing at the top.
 Next is first BOM quilt from April -the wonky cross.  Boy did this take a few girls out of their comfort zone.  If you look closely you can see that I have taped it already to do some wonky straight line quilting.  I will sew these lines then add more tapes as needed.
 Finally my CountrySide Quilt - so named because of the border fabric which is also continued down the centre of the backing.  None these photos have great colour and I really don't know why.  Better photos next time.
 And the DONE!  I have finally finished two tracksuits for my little niece.  Tomorrow I will pack them up and send them down to her.
 This polar fleece is just so soft!  Delicious!
That is it from me tonight.  Why is this time of year so busy.   Last Tuesday Fly Boy has his Year 11 Music performance for school and tomorrow night Guitar Hero has a Music Showcase for School.  Dinner at the RSL with hubby and then off to the auditorium there for the show.

Planning a whole day of sewing beforehand so here's hoping I can fit in a post for tomorrow night as well.

Till next time...............happy stitching!


  1. Very nice work Jan-Maree, they all look wonderful. You are such a versatile sewist (is that a real word?). Those little track suits are so cute!

  2. Lovely quilts! Cutie patootie track suits!

  3. Beautiful quilts, all of them. Imagine your hands are a little tired with all that pinning. To me that's the worst part of quilt making.
