Another One Bites The Dust

I am a bit late in blogging this morning as I have been busy being a taxi service, Mr CLI to the Doctors for his torn muscles in his hip and Miss Fish off to her School Holiday Program.

I am now back in a quiet house, so I can relax till this afternoon when everyone returns.

I have been busy in the last couple of weeks working on my quilts the photo is of another quilt that I have finished.

It is made using Kaffe Fassett fabric, he is a designer from England who started out designing very bright and interesting knitting patterns, then he got into designing fabric for patchwork. The one thing you can say about his fabrics are that they are not shy and retiring, but bright and bold.

I also designed this quilt and the stitcheries that I placed amongst the squares.

Here is one of the stitcheries.

On our trip the other week Mr CLI found a piece of material with different birds in gold, fawn and dark red. I have been working on a quilt using them all last week and finished the quilt top on the weekend. It is in creams, fawns, aqua blue and dark red.

Mr CLI says it is too nice to sell, but the colors aren't what I am decorating my house with so we will see if I keep it. I really enjoy the designing and crating process and don't mind selling them as I can then justify buying more fabric and making more quilts. Also I have quilt tops to finish that I have made for my house.

Anyway I better get a wriggle along so I can put another quilt together ready to free motion quilt tomorrow. So till then bye for now.
