Howdie, howdie, howdie! I am back from a nice break away visiting three of my kids in Australia. I spent the time chillin' out, playing dolls with my granddaughter and cooling off in the pool! We didn't really go sight seeing, but one night we went out for fish & chips and there is a 'commemoritive' walkway all about the Bee Gees, lots of history about them, huge wide screen TV with all their video's playing and some bronze statues.

Now it's back to the quilting, the following two quilts I finished before I headed off my holiday. First is Jacki's 'Country Animals' quilt by The Birdhouse.
Jacki likes her quilting to be simple, she like the sample I quilted for The Country Yard - see *here*
This cheeky cow needed a quilted tail as well as all the animals needed eyes, to which I quilted.
The sheep got wool, the cow got nostrils as did the pigs, the pigs also received 'fuller figures' then a looping meander for the background.
Jacki wanted the recipients name to be quilted on the border.
Jacki always makes a superduper cool job of her backings! Checkout the appliqued chicken and sheep.
Next is Pam's 'decorator' quilt, made at a class at The Country Yard. Made from a bundle of fat quarters Pam treasured.
This quilt had all over quilting (edge to edge), the pattern is called 'Camellia's' and I used Glide thread in the colour 'Peacock'.
The pattern seemed to match up so well with all the pretty floral fabrics. The backing was a pretty pink.
Thanks to Jacki and Pam, enjoy your quilts!
On the airplane home I watched 'Coat of Many Colours', the story of Dolly Parton. Sweet movie, lots of lovely old quilts and of course Dolly's patchwork coat!
