1. I've been testing patterns for Sue over at Quilt Times.
2. My back has been playing up, which makes me a tad irritable and I didn't think I should moan too much.
3. We've been trying to sort bits of the garden out.
Now I can finally show a couple of photos of the quilts I've been testing. The pattern she wanted testing was a design called Wimbledon Squares. I tend to do my own take on patterns, but the instructions were easy to follow and I had no trouble doing it smaller than the large version and here they are. Sue has allowed me to give them their own names. They are as yet not quilted, though the bottom one is on the machine already and will have a pattern called Falling Leaves in a brown called Spiced Tea.
|Autumn on Wimbledon Common.|
|Black cows and calves.|
|A burnt out tree stump. It must have been a very large tree.|
|Looking over the lake.|
|And this one is for Anne (Frayed at the Edge blog). A very large old threshing machine, originally made in Scotland and shipped to Oz in the 1890's. Isn't it wonderful.|

Take care and have a lovely week.
