Julie  This is where you can follow my patchwork and quilting journey. My love of fabric new or old.

The beautiful Iris medallion quilt is finished. I got to choose the pantograph and chose ‘Lithe’. The first pass always tells me if it is right. It reminds me of a Sultans castle turrets. I pushed on with it after lunch and managed to ease in all the fullness without getting the centre too stretched. I ended up with a couple of bubbles in it. It’s such a beautiful quilt and I’m pleased with it as I am sure the customer will be. I used a light purple thread which doesn’t show on the back or detract the front design. The centre is framed with half Dresden plates machine appliqued on. #longarm #longarmquilting #gammill #gammillquilting #pantograph #pantographquilting #quilting #quilt #customerquilt #medallionquilt #patchworkquilt

Slight break in transmission is warranted . Some things can’t be dealt with when you’re hungry. I’ve been watching this as I’ve progressed down the quilt. It will “ease” in I’m sure. The centre is on the bias which caused the fullness. Back after lunch.
Edit: please don’t think I am bagging the customers work. This happens and it can and will quilt out.

First quilt off the frame today. A pieced cat. Customer chose ‘Clamshell ‘ pantograph. Well, I got a diagram on the quilt slip. I think it worked fine. Reminds me of corrugated iron. Cat on a hot tin room. #longarm #longarmquilting #gammill #gammillquilting #pantograph #pantographquilting #quilting #quilt #customerquilt #patchwork #patchworkquilt

My second quilt off the frame today is a beautiful stack and whack kaleidoscope. It never ceases to amaze me what different blocks you get from one fabric. That fabric being the border fabric. The customer chose ‘Alfresco’ pantograph and I chose a dark tan thread. #longarm #longarmquilting #pantograph #pantographquilting #gammill #gammillquilting #quilting #quilt #customerquilt #patchwork #patchworkquilt #stackandwhack #stackandwhackquilt

Back at the longarm today. First quilt off the frame is a gorgeous paper pieced pineapple/log cabin block one. Pattern is called ‘Hanabi Hexagon ‘ by Hiroe Mogi. Customer chose ‘Samurai ‘ pantograph with a navy thread. #longarm #longarmquilting #pantograph #pantographquilting #gammill #gammillquilting #quilting #quilting #logcabinquilt #paperpiecing #paperpieced

Another happy mail day. One came for me late on Friday after the others and the Mr’s correct book came today. 😂😂 I just cracked myself up. The cost of the wrong book, the cost of the right book and two lots of postage. Bad me. I’ll have to punish myself again like I did today. 😂😂 Thank you @luvintagehaus for the gorgeous vintage sheets. My glasses fit perfectly in the new glasses case I bought at Glenrose Patchwork today. I won’t wear it out as my glasses are on 75% of the time. If I’m not looking through them, I’m looking over them. #happymail #happymailday #vintagesheets #newglassescase

My punishment acquisitions bar the carrots. The Mr gave me them. Freshly picked and bagged and given to him by Moffat Farms for me. I headed off in the rain to Warwick with his meals and medicine pouch. Arrived at the Caltex Roadhouse and gave him his things. We had a quick late lunch and off he went. Bye Mr. 👋 Him one way and me the other. 😉I wonder if he noticed me slip in behind him. 🤫🙄 Well, Glenrose Patchwork is only 5 minutes down the road. It was a better trip home with the rain holding off for me. It’s such a long straight road in places. I can’t show everything I purchased as there are Xmas presents for some people. And even one for you partner. #12daysofchristmasswap2018 #team_fivegoldrings #roadtrip #ontheroadagain #heisalwaysontheroad #newenglandhighway #highway #toowoombatowarwick #glenrosepatchwork #fabric #fabricpurchases #stashenhancement #addtothestash

Waiting for a call from the Mr when he finishes loading his truck at Aratula. Road trip to Warwick with his weeks meals. Yay for salad season. A busy morning this morning with two different school drops for Teenage Miss and the Little Misses and Tax return time at the Accounts. I never got his meals packed and heaven forbid he could do it himself. I think I’ll treat myself to a patchwork shop as punishment while I’m there. 😜 His medication pouch has a broken zipper and he wants another. I guess he’ll have to use my travel first aid pouch until I make a new one. Congratulations to Little Miss who got an award on parade this morning at school. So proud of herself. #salads #weeklymeals #firstaidpouch #schoolaward #proudofherself

Thanks for all the love @jennyeward Love you. ❤️ #anothersister #missyou #allthelikes

I finished the shopping bags for Sonja and started on mine. Oops! I pulled on the other end while I was sewing. 🙄 The needle bent. It’s a loose weave fabric and is fraying. Since changing the bent needle the cotton either breaks or misses stitches in that needle. I only had one spare needle so I’ve turned the overlocker off and put it in the naughty corner until I get more needles so I can change both. #overlocker #bentneedle #nospareneedles #whyhaveinotgotmore

Well, hello sunshine. Joining @barefootcrafter for #saturdaynightcraftalong cutting out some tea towel shopping bags for my daughter to give as Xmas gifts. She bought them up today when she came for a visit. Such cute designs. I’ll be sewing these tomorrow as after they left I had a rather long Nana nap. 😴 💤. I will also make up the ones I cut from a vintage curtain. My Granddaughter bought me the sweetest zipper pouch for my birthday from a recent school trip to China. My daughter also gave me chocolates. Check out the size of those liquorice bullets. I love liquorice and covered in chocolate is a bonus. And that macadamia brittle is just delicious. Sampling all the chocolate.😍 #sewing #sewingpreparation #shoppingbagsinthemaking #cottonteatowels #vintagecurtain #handmade #zipperpouch #chocolates @noosachocolatefactory
