Attacking the stash, and just a tiny bit of new stuff...

Left over from my red quilt, I have found enough squares to make up another quilt using green sashing this time, for my very special friend Brenda!
This "birdy" fabric from Ballarat Patchwork was just irresistable . . . 
White Aggies coming out in my garden,
and this beautiful Cosmos bud . . .

a Clematis flower, and a lovely pink rose from a garden in Melbourne.

psssssst, there's a lovely fabric sale 30% off at Provincial Patch until 31st January, hop on over and take a look www.provincialpatch.com  I bought some beautiful green fabric and the service was excellent.

Always gorgeous flower pictures. I've been spying that birdie fabric for a while now and keep resisting. Why? I ask myself.

Beautiful photos. I love the soft green of the quilt.

Your wonderful parcel has arrived. Thank you so much for the cards, fabric and lovely chicken. I've called her "Chook" as I've never owned an Australian chicken before. :-)

Your quilt is looking gorgeous! I finally managed to order that bird fabric yesterday after months of drooling over it! And your flower photos are as stunning as ever - but surely I should be in at least one of them?????

Your seasons must be the opposite of my. 6 inches of snow just feel on PA and I am smack in the middle of it.

Love the flowers. Your friend should feel special. That is beautiful.

Love those flower photos, makes me feel like summer.

Those colours are great, love the red.

Beautiful quilt! I keep seeing that bird fabric pop up all over the net lately - I think it's some kind of subliminal message. Buy bird fabric.... buy bird fabric..

Well who am I to resist?

Cute stash quilt and that bird fabric is just darling! SO cute!

And the flower pictures are great - it's below zero here right now, so those flowers give some evidence that spring DOES exist - at least somewhere ....

What are you going to do with the bird fabric? I have some and need inspiration..........

I loved the red quilt you made, but I think I like the green in with it even more.

Muddling Through said...

Oh, Annie, now I've drooled all over my keyboard. :) Between your lively fabrics and their combinations and those gorgeous flowers.......there was just nothing else to do!

Christine said...

Your quilt with the green sashing is lovely. Your friend is very lucky.
