 A very quick progress about a couple of Quiltalongs I am joining in with at the moment.

One is with my good friend Joy in Ballarat from Days filled with Joy blog and this is a small wall hanging we are participating in.  Our first block was a doddle, which is good as another I decided to join in with is quite fiddly.  First photo is of the Sewcial Quilt block No. 17.

Now the next QAL is from Jo Avery in Scotland and she is someone I've followed in Love Patchwork & Quilting Magazine from Britain which I've purchased for many years.  It sounded quite interesting so I'm giving it a go, though in a slightly smaller version.

Her book.

This is the quilt and the row at the bottom is the one we are starting with.
As of yesterday I had completed one rose block.

I am going to use scraps for all my flowers and an assortment of white leftovers from my stash for each row background.  Could be an interesting exercise.
Behind the book photo which I took on my ironing board is some new fabric on the top of board, because I ended up with a very worn spot and then ripped it, hence replaced old fabric, shown below.  It's really cute.

One last snippet.
I think I mentioned another QAL with Sandra from mmm.quilts who has her link up and reveal on the 15th of June, but here is a little teaser.  I made two of Follow your own Path.  They are both finished, but not labelled.  Want to have a look..................
The back of each one.
OK enough from me now and I will pop on progress reports of the QALs from time to time and should catch up with some garden photos too.
Thanks for all my lovely comments lately, take care, stay safe and hugs from down under.


  1. I like that second quilt, isn't it pretty. Looking forward to following along with your progress.

    1. Thanks Jo. I've done another rose & hope to have 6 done by end of week.

  2. I'm looking forward to watching this quilt develop. It's going to be beautiful Susan. Clever lady.x

    1. Thanks Cherie. I'm not sure about the clever bit, just need to be doing things and not much happening in the garden with this week looking pretty glum with lots of rain, wind & cold. Even snow forecast down to low levels & Mt. Baw Baw will have some which is our nearest ski field.

  3. It certainly is going to be lovely, you are clever to be able to make something so beautiful.

  4. Hi Susan! I can see the back of your TWO Follow quilts. What a clever idea to quilt them with an arrow design. I'll pop back to see your reveal. Stay safe and take care. ~smile~ Roseanne
