Today I bought the background fabric [sort of duck egg blue] in Taupo, N.Z. for my CWB quilt, which I am so looking forward to starting. This blog site, which I found by accident is so inspiring, such fun to be able to share in everyones progress, and see that others have the same ideas as mine, thank you all.


  1. Welcome Ann, or did I already say that? Looking forward to seeing how your background looks, I love that shade of blue....

  2. Ooooh, lovely blue background! Will watch with great interest...such fun! Happy stitching!

  5. Welcome Ann. This is a very supportive and encouraging group. I think you'll really enjoy your journey making this quilt with these nice ladies cheering you on. Can't wait to see your first block.

  6. Enjoy Ann. Looking forward to see your pretty blocks! Blue background - great! Enough of encouragement - I gotta sew... Haha. Seriously, after a few minutes on this blog - you'll be energized to make more and more blocks...

  7. Am really enjoying this quilt,I made the difficult decision to machine applique, there are so many things I want to do and not enough hours, and with Michele Hills new book due out soon!!!Block 1 is finished , 2 on the way as are the peacocks, and I am so pleased with them cant post photos until a friend shows me how! Whenever I get stuck I look at the photos of everyones lovely blocks and away I go.
