Fabric Preparation.

Today It has been all about the fabric. I have been busy cutting fabric into 10 inch squares, 5 inch squares and 2 inch strips. I have literally cut hundreds of pieces ready to use for quilting.

Kitties And Crafting.

 This is Tilli this morning, It is a shame she does not like a blanket because I think she is feeling a little bit cold, so tightly curled up.
Meggie is on our bed.
 At Savers yesterday I picked up 2 packets of 4 plastic table mats for $2 each.
This is what I bought them for, and it works! Template plastic for quilting pieces. I have made one set and the Crafternooner ladies will be tracing them from my original pieces and cutting out a set for themselves and will keep them in a zip lock bag. I am looking forward to it. This makes a set of templates for 25 cents.

Aussie Heroes Quilt Top And Birthday Present.

 This is the fabric I will be using for the Aussie Hero quilt I am making at the moment. The backing is the blue and the orange is for the binding.
 This is the quilt top so far. The blocks are from Aussie Heroes that were sent in and then sent to me to be squared up and assembled and turned into a quilt. The rest of the fabric is from my stash.
This is what my darling husband has bought for me for my birthday, a wonderful quilters sewing machine, Janome DC6030 I am so very very happy!
I am so looking forward to finding out the features that it has.
All the details on this wonderful machine can be found here.

Sewing Room Makeover

 No sewing yesterday, I re did my sewing room again, This time to add a long fold up table to give us another surface to sew and cut on without compromising space, Not easy! Plenty of bruises on my legs with all the lifting pulling and pushing. This is the view from the doorway.
The only thing not moved was Tilli and Megs bed.

 I forgot to give you the link to the Quilt as you go tutorial I followed to add the blocks together. this is it.
