This flimsy (which is currently at the quilters) had the circles hand appliqued on during a Melbourne - Sydney trip and then during a Melbourne - Bathurst trip during 2012. Completed blocks were then machine pieced.
These cute little scottie dogs will be gifts for some new little babies that will be joining us in 2013.
Just a couple of the recent finishes. The past few months any spare time has been spent working on completing some long outstanding UFOs. 4 of which are at the quilters as we speak. More pics soon.

This is a cot quilt made using the "1600 quilt" Jelly Roll tutorial (can be found on You Tube). This one will be heading off to my "twin" (the other Julie Schliefert) in the USA for her new grandson.
Credit - all quilts held up for display by my youngest son Nick!

Rosie Quinlan's pattern - "Love is". The blocks were stitched several years ago (on Calico!!) and i finally put it together. I did not do the borders as the per the original pattern, opting to do a simple Black, White and Burgundy arrangement.
Above: Log cabin blocks purchased from the Mennonite Resource Centre in Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA on our trip earlier this year. Pieced by me as a mini quilt.
Crazy Log Cabin - Kit purchased from Material Obsession - Sydney. Pieced and hand quilted (simply) by me.
Both were made as part of our Patchwork Group challenge for 2011 - "Any thing/Variation Log Cabin"
My Dear Jane journey started in 2009 and after abut 18 months I was over it! My patience ran out, so the project was shelved, until mid 2011 Sandra at Foothills - Tecoma showed me a pic of a quilt she saw on her US travels which incorporated a "DJ" style block. After a light bulb moment and some pattern drafting - Jane's School house was born. Each school house incorporates the finished DJ blocks.
