Oh dear!

Oh deary! deary! me.... it has been a while.... I have been a bit lost in life and all it's ups and downs, no blogging but I have been trying to do a bit of sewing here and there....
  and guess what?... I have finished a few things....
first .... this is my 'Butterfly Kisses' quilt.....
a few years ago (probably longer than that) we went to a friend's wedding in Hervey Bay and I bought a few fat quarters in the Butterfly Kisses range.....

they sat in my cupboard for quite a while until I decided what to do with them, 
when I saw Leanne Beasley's 'Don't Forget the Chocolate' quilt in her 'Romancing the Roadtrip' book I knew it was a perfect design.....
it showed the pretty fabrics off beautifully........


my quilter  it kept the floral theme going....


my next finish was my 'Gardener's Journal'.......
it's nice to have it finished and on the bed.....

I'm quite pleased with the quilting.... a little bit of paisley like the border....

I love the fabrics I used in this.....
I have another finish to show you next time....

Hiya Sheryl, the two quilts look amazing. You should be thrilled with them. I know what you mean about life just getting in the way at the moment, seems to be so little time and so much to do.

Oh Sheryl, Robyn Pandolph's Butterfly Kisses is one of my very favourite fabric ranges! I kept mine ever so long before I took the plunge and was brave enough to cut into my pieces LOL. Your quilt looks simply gorgeous!
