Return From Retreat

 Returned from another wonderful North Of  The Yarra Quilters Retreat, always great to catch up with fellow quilters. Worked very hard this retreat was determined to finish off these three quilts, being my year to use up scraps and to finish off past projects.  Sent the three quilts to Melbourne ahead of time for professional quilting by the Wonderful Anita. Blogger: hillsidequilting. She does such a great work. Added my personal signature labels, with touch of Maddy.  My little poems/sayings.  Close up of quilting on this one.

This second quilt was inspired by the Get Creative Magazine  that Spotlight use to put out....this is from the first years collection.With my own selection of fabrics and personal label. Really happy these quilts are no longer UFO's.

 The snakes and ladder quilt with it on label now firmly in place. For those precious little girls.

 This quilt is a stack and slash with a twist as l got burned, so to speak. Made for son no.2 (Sean) was supposed to be an Essendon Footballers quilt. Black and Red for those who don't know, but as you can see l added white to lift the quilt, Silly thing to do because now it is a Saint Kilda Footballers quilt. Not to worry it is going in my car as a car car in Red with Black interior. Added my personal little label.
I am sure they would rather lock me in my sewing room and throw away the key.

Two new little ones are going to join the extended Toowoomba family in the coming months. Need to make something very special for both.


  1. The quilts look terrific Maddy Nice little verses
