New year New Beginnings

First of all thank you to those that replied to my previous blog.   Dan from Findmyfabric.com has a website that you can send a photo of your fabric and it will try to match it in their database.  Brilliant!

I was still unable to find the fabric and so had to come up with another solution.  This is what we have come up with:

Actually this is a much better solution and it breaks the "busyness" of the fabric.  My mother in law is currently here in Singapore and the aim is that we will hand quilt this together.

I haven't been blogging much since before Christmas but that doesn't mean that I haven't been busy quilting.  Other than the quilt above I have also been busy making a quilt for my son Luke.  The last quilt I made for him has fallen apart due to overuse and now it is time to make a larger quilt for his bed.
Guess what his favourite colour is?
This quilt is ready to be basted and then quilted.

My mother in law is visiting us until the end of February and so last week we spent the day at the beach at Sentosa Island.  It was a lovely day and the weather was great.  I managed to get really sunburned which probably wasn't the smartest thing to do.  Next time I will wear sunscreen.

well thats all from me...Happy Quilting!

hi marrianne

De quilts zien er erg leuk uit
ook die van luke vind ik erg mooi.
maar ook van die jelly rols is leuk opgelost
het blijft echt een leuke hobby.

en het verbaast mij iedere keer weer van wat er allemaal mogelijk is met lapjes stof, kortom het blijft een leuke hobby.
groetjes aan iedereen

liefs Hennie
