Red and White quilt tick

Tony's quilt

I put the last piece in Tony's red and white quilt last night.
I have really enjoyed making this quilt it is a Sue Daley pattern.
I really enjoy paper piecing.

Tony's quilt

We saw this quilt when we were in Qld last year, we were in Eumundi and I had the pleasurable task of visiting Sue for the shop.
Tony very rarely comments on quilts but he did on this one.
Now he has his own I am not sure how I will quilt it.

new skirt

You can not get good help these days.
This is Tony taking a photo of me supposedly with no head but oh well
----- me again twice in one year.
Shame about the weeds in the back ground.

New skirt

this one happened because I was walking towards him.
The skirt is a Nicki pattern and like all her patterns is very easy to follow.
I wore it to work today and got quite a few comments.
Thanks to my friend who lives around the corner for her invisible zipper foot.
I must get one when I am next at Otto's.

Pin cushion

I joined the Label crew here and each month you get set a pattern and a set of very cute labels.
This was my first pattern and I just love this fabric.

Pin Cushion

each month you get a label with your name on it.

Glad Tony didn't cut off your head. Didn't notice the weeds - too busy admiring the skirt. Lucky Tony getting a great quilt. I love Sue Daley's stuff.

Tony is a very lucky man, the quilt is gorgeous.

Love your skirt too.

Sue SA said...

I love red and white quilts, and you hand pieced it (!) your DH is a lucky man! Nice skirt, you have been very busy sewing, hmm perhaps your son is now doing his own washing?! Cute labels, very tempting, think I will have to check out that link. Happy quilting Sue SA.

Love the quilt. Love the skirt (very) and adore the little house. And you look very nice too...

Kris said...

I love, love, love your red and white quilt! Well, Tony's red and white quilt I should say. The man has taste! Love your skirt, and the little house is just darling. Of course I am madly in love with that fabric range myself so should probably love anything made from it!

The quilt looks fantastic. Waiting patiently for my first label club and the skirt looks really good. Might have to head down to the scaries for some denim as well.
