Nelson's Choice

"Nelson's Choice" 
Nelson chose the pattern and fabrics for his quilt. 
The photo really doesn't show up the colours properly.
I pieced a panel for the backing using up the scraps.
Once again Leanne at Leanne's Quilting Services has 
done a wonderful job of the quilting. 
She used a beautiful blue/green varigated thread.
Nelson is very happy with his new quilt. 
I have to admit I was a bit out of my comfort zone with this one. 
Definitely not the usual pretty fabrics I work with!

FNSI And A Special Football Match!

Friday night I finished cutting out a new quilt. 
I've finally cut into my bundle of Tilda Old Rose!
This is one of the projects I am going to take to retreat next month. 
Thank you to Wendy for hosting us.
Yesterday was a special day in the MacDonald family. 
For the first time ever, Mitchell, Austin and Nelson 
played in the same football match together. 
This season they have joined Reservoir FC and played in the seniors. 
No win but Mitchell kicked one goal and Nelson one goal and one point. 
Don't know how often three brothers get to play together in one team!

OPAM For June

Three fat quarter bags are my only finishes for June
(that I've been able to show).

Thank you to Kris for keeping us inspired.
Julie from My Threadbear Life and I have now received 
our swap gifts to each other. When I get a chance, 
I will take some photos to show you my 
 beautiful gifts from Julie and what I made for her.
Here's a little sneak peek of what I made!
