Tree for Margie by Mary

Hi Margie
So near Christmas, I thought you would need a partridge in a pear tree.
Continuing on with my wool embroidery, enjoyed this little project.
The quilt is actually straight, it is just my photography which is not.
Enjoy your Christmas everyone and look forward to the next project.

Lichen By Kerry

I have a gorgeous tree in my garden that is covered in Lichen and when we chose the colour our house was to be painted I chose the lichen colour. They renamed the paint Kerry's Polished Concrete. I have used a mask to create this little quilt, painted the batik and then machine quilted all 3 layers.
Thank you Margie I have been waiting to use this mask for a while. Simple but sweet.

Oriental Jacket by Anna

Here is my very late "Oriental Jacket" for Ngaire.I have always loved Chinese style jackets made with the beautiful brocade fabric found in Asia.
I had a wonderful time in Birmingham at the European Quilt Festival. What a great show. Also made it to Gees Bend in the deep south of America, another highlight of our 4 month trip.
Cheers  Anna

Having fun in Houston!

Four 'Stitching Across the Ditch' members having fun in Houston!
It was lovely to catch up and have a delicious dinner in an Italian restaurant. 
Houston Quilt Show was totally mind boggling! Lovely to see a quilt by one of our past members Ruth Bloomfield - congratulations Ruth! - a stunning quilt.

'Orient' for Ngaire

This is my challenge for Ngaire. Very late, however I just couldn't get my head around the theme - too many choices. Finally decided to let the design in the fabric do the speaking so I hope you like it.
Thank you for the challenge. I have enjoyed seeing the others on the blog.
