Getting Another UFO Finished.

Lately I have made an effort to finish a few projects and this is the latest. A quilt top I completed who knows when as it's been in my " to finish " box for..... forever.


I will be using this on the table when friends come over for coffee and cake.


Of course the dog, being a Maremma has to inspect everything and this was no exception. 


As I needed something for the backing I went to Spotlight for a pale check gingham or something similar but fell in love with this and used it for the binding as well.


With the weather being so nice here (for hot tropical North Queensland) the flowers are loving the mild weather and frequent showers.




Not to be outdone the orchids are blooming away with wonderful large sprays.



Of course with the damp comes the fungus, but aren't they gorgeous?

  2. A Beautiful quilt, thanks for sharing a little bit of your out-of-doors...it is not that mild or rainy here...August used to be our hottest month but for the last several years July has topped the list and August was actually quite nice..I'm praying that is the case this year...ready for a break in the heat.

  4. Orchids and fungus growing together outside!
    What a different climate than here in The Netherlands!
    a few days of above 25C weather and we call that a heat wave!
    Thanks for sharing your creative ideas!
    Take care,
    Joanne

  7. Heather - I'm new to your blog. I think that is such a pretty quilt - and you have picked the "perfect" border and binding for it. It looks like you flipped the backing to make it the binding too - very clever. :-)
