Mother and daughter, navigating their way through life one quilt at a time!

It is amazing where you can find inspiration for your patchwork. My daughter and I have returned from our holiday in Tasmania - such a beautiful place to visit, so many wonderful people, sights, etc.
I loved the patterns created in the rocks and thought it would be a lovely patchwork - all of those different size pieces that join together like a jigsaw.
We visited The Quilted Crow and bought a little bit of fabric - they have so many beautiful Reproduction fabrics and 1930's. The 'chicken' bought a couple of fat quarters and some ribbon. She has more UFO's than I do. I like to keep mine to about 3 - but at the moment she has 7!!! Definitely following in our footsteps!
So, it is back to the grindstone at work - so hard to get back into the swing of things. I love my work, but I loved my holiday too.
