50 followers, thankyou

Hi everyone, and hello to my new follower. Thankyou so much for joining me.

Today I'm working on a braid panel quilt for the Aussie Hero quilt program. i'e just about finished the first panel.
 When I saw the braid quilt at Not So Fancy Nancy
I just knew I had to make one too. Mine isn't goign to be all braided though.

I didn't have a pattern or anything so I just made it up as I went along. As a result, my braid is probably much skinnier.

Mike says he thinks it's too flowery for a male soldier, so I hope there is a female soldier who has requested a quilt too. I was going for green and gold (the sahing will be a golden yellow) and these were the fabrics I had.

I'm not sure I'll have enough of these fabrics for two more panels, so I may have to rethink the green and gold theme, or go buy some more fabric. Who am I kidding? Of course I'm goign to go and buy more fabric. LOL

See you agian soon


  1. Congratulations on reaching 50 followers! YAY!

    And was there any doubt that you would buy more fabric LOL. That's half the fun for me for any quilting projects.

    I have put your Butterfly Princess cross stitch on my rotation for 2013 and I will let you know when I post some wips. I can't wait to start her.

    Take care xox

    1. Alicia, I'm ecstatic that you are going to stitch it. I can't wait to hear your thoughts on it as you work.

      And, yes, buying and stashing is half the fun .... yay!
