I love to try out recipes... take a beach walk and breathe in that salty blue air......love to have coffee...sip a glass of champagne......read a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

~A Quilt Workshop.......Past Times


Recently I attended a workshop for this lovely quilt
Past Times by Lynne Wilson


The quilt was made up of fat quarters so I went 'shopping' in my stash......
bundled up my fabrics and tied a ribbon around them all ready to take in to the workshop for Lynne to have a look at......
The fabrics were a mix of traditional and country and mostly deep colours









The most unlikely combinations were put together and they looked great!!! 




This is laying out the blocks so I have put them in this post for handy reference to it
I am up to this part but not sure if I will get to it before Christmas!!!

Looking at the blocks on the floor your quilt has a strong blue with pizazz.
Looks like you are having fun.

Great fabrics, will make a great quilt. Lynne W has been to Norway, I went to her work class, bought her pattern book 'sewn in time' and have made 2 quilts. Have a lovely pre Christmas time :-)

Dear,dear FRIEND! How lovely to see you on my post, and to receive a warm hug from your part of the Christmas season....a warm place! We are freezing over here, but we have snow, and is it ever beautiful. It is treacherous driving, but if you go slow enough and give yourself at least TWO hours to get to work that usually only takes 50 minutes, then you're OK!

BLess you dearest Dzintra! Anita
