Last Friday, Jan, Sue-Anne and I visited Patches of Heaven at Temora, located in the South West (Riverina) area of NSW. It's a lovely shop, well worth the 2 1/2 hour drive from Albury, and Helen made us feel most welcome. Check out the store for yourself with a visit or online by clicking Patches of Heaven listed under Blogs and Links.
I saw this block in an antique quilt. This got me to thinking about a new quilt for Christmas. The Roman Holiday range had just arrived in store and being red and white.......that's when I realised the block and fabric would make the perfect quilt for a Christmas display I have in mind.
Recently, I've seen two quilts with the backs pieced. Both looked wonderful and I was inspired to piece the back for a quilt top finished months ago. The most satisfying thing is that I used up all the pieces left over from the quilt top and quite a few other pieces that were never going to find there way into projects. Now I can purchase some new fabric guilt free!
