Ta da!


I was head down and tail up all weekend finishing this quilt at my weekend retreat with three beautiful girlfriends. Well, except for the drinking wine, eating gourmet meals, reading mags - you get the picture! And yes, I did have fun. It was perfect weather for sewing - pouring with rain.

This delightfully girly, scrappy quilt is a "Leanne's House Block of the Month quilt" designed by the brilliant Aussie quilter Leanne Beasley (http://leanneshouse.typepad.com/). It is hand quilted with pearl cotton thread which I found was so much easier and quicker than the usual method.
