Time to share another two of Juliet's quilts from her book. Here's the Polar Bear hanging waiting to be posted back to Juliet in Christchurch.
Next are the Rhino's..........................................................
These guys ooze personality! Every time I quilt for Juliet her creations have me smiling, I love her choice of fabrics they add another dimension of interest.
Sometimes it's all about creating texture to let the piecing and fabric come to the forefront.
I have been enjoying my copy of this fabulous book, pondering which quilt to make first?
In the mean time while I ponder, the book has given me the push I needed to finish my Running Zebra quilt (also a design by Juliet). Here's the Zebra finished, only borders to go then the quilting.
|Me 'wrangling' the two halves together!|
The last couple of days I spent on Ururpukapuka Island. Starting at Rawhiti kayaking over to the island. Setting up camp, but hiking to the highest peak of the island to sleep out under the stars.....that was spectacular! The next day we kayaked around the circumference of the island, exploring caves, watching wild life and picnic lunching on the beach. The last night wasn't that great to sleep out under the stars so in our tents we went. Then kayaked back over to Rawhiti to the vehicles.
Another confirmation how lucky I am to live in paradise!
