Lois's beautiful vintage doily quilt....


Dear quilting friend Lois is making this beautiful vintage doily quilt in the "Quilt as you go " method.
Lois has secured the doilies onto a neutral background by hand, setting each block in their colour and similar embroidery design.
Some doilies will slightly  overlap seams....it will be stunning.
I'm sure there's a story behind each doily.....if only these doilies could talk. 

Hope you're having a great week..

Holly Hobbie finished....and a new flimsy...

Holly Hobbie finished, just need to wash and block it now. Happy to say Susie and I are still friends. We had fun quilting meandering loops and hearts with a feathered border...💝


I loved piecing this quick I Spy quilt for a special little person, I think it still needs outside borders to finish it off.
Today's a good day to stay in and sew, it's freezing outside. 

Have a great day.
Hugs Julia....💕

Borders on, now to  sandwich and quilt her on my Sweet Susie.
I  just hope Sweet Susie will want to play with me now....she must be feeling very neglected!

This started off being a single size quilt, then down to a lap quilt....now a cot quilt.
Wanting this finished, so I can move on to a new project...

It's freezing cold here....hope you're keeping warm or cool wherever you are..

Happy sewing.
Hugs Julia

Meet my pen pal...

Paula....at last, I met my pen pal in of about 5 years in Tulsa. We had the best couple of days together..

We went Shopping.... we visited 4 quilt shops, yep, I had a little list...don't all us quilters have a list!
Shopped at the mall, such a fun time to share with Paula.


These two beautiful ladies are sisters and own the quilt shop. Some CW fabric came home with me.
Had a wonderful time turning the quilts on Paula's bed.....and I thought I had a lot of quilts. Beautiful award winning quilts , fun quilts....
Paula gifted me this hand quilted vintage quilt....beautifully cared for....not sure how old it is, perhaps the fabrics will date it....anyone have an idea on the era....
We shopped,  Paula and her DH David treated us to a drive on Route 66,....a tribute to Elvis show, an amazing two days....wish we had more time together.

The back up singer on the right actually sang with Elvis until he passed away....

Look who I saw at the airport....I got to have a lovely chat with her...😍
So with all my shopping for myself, the quilt and family shopping, I had to buy another case...good thing Qantas allow 2 cases....
