Timeless Traditions is a block of the month. I recently quilted the sample for The Country Yard.
Kerryn (owner operator) asked for simple custom quilting.
All the required stitching the ditch was knocked off first then some stipple in the background of the applique blocks including the applique borders, then some simple classic straight lines.
The quilt measures 78" x 90" which would make a nice quilt for a bed, top it off with some matching cushions, pillow's and perhaps a teddy bear!
On Sunday I headed off for a tramp around the coast starting at Tauikura Bay, along the beach around the base of Mt Aubrey then from Reotahi up and over Mt Aubrey returning to Taurikura Bay.
This photo was taken from McClouds Bay/ Little Munro Bay where 'Castle Rock' is. I loved how the sun was streaming through the Pohutukawa tree.
Me, feeling rather proud that I made it to the top of Mt Aubrey - scrambling - then trying to stand at the top will jelly legs! Behind me is Marsden Refinery and further off is Waipu. This is just three of the twenty something photo's I took. We were blessed with a mild sunny winter day.
