A mid year finish

June 30 marks the end of the Financial year in Australia, so for me its a mid way check point for everything.  I am working away with making quilts from blocks received in swaps as I have lots of them to put together. 
But my mid year finish is the Tapestry quilt ( named from the fig tree range of fabrics that I used to make it with). This is a jelly roll sampler quilt and if it looks familiar I have made this twice before.  Once in butterscotch and roses and one in a French General colour way.

I have quilted this all over in a curly three leaf pattern from raw edge to raw edge, you can see the detail in the pictures above.

Tap 1 tapestry roll I have also done a spot of stitching this week on my Christmas teddy wall hanging.
Here are the two blocks that I have completed.

If you look on the QBSA blog you will see the flimsy that I have put together showcasing some of the blocks received in swaps.  I purchased some backing fabric for that today and plan to get underway with quilting it over the weekend.

I also purchased a delectable charm pack, called Mini coffee cake * yum *
I plan to make a table runner with it for my dining table as my colours are browns and blues so this is perfect.  With all of my projects on the go that it simmering on the back burner for the time being though.


  1. Hi Sue, what a lovely quilt this one is... it would take me forever & a day to make even 1 and you have done 3!!
    I love Fig Tree fabrics too.
    Wonderful finish!

  2. Hi Sue,
    Another great quilt. That pattern is awesome. Love the quilting too.

  3. Yeah a finish, well done! Your FMQ is great, I need to take some lessons!
