Colourful Singapore

Just a few shots taken around beautiful Singapore for inspiration. Where's the quilting photos you ask?...

Well I'm afraid there didn't seem to be much sewing happening today, but plenty of laughter, chatting, eating and drinking (tea and coffee, we haven't taken to regular G &Ts...yet!). It's nice to know that all around the world, including sultry Singapore, there's a group of quilters happy to share their craft and company.

So there's no works in progress this week, but we did have a couple of finished projects. Ta daa...
Everything old is new again.
This quilt was started by a friend of Kathy's grandmother way back in the 1960s (seems like yesterday!). For some reason it was never finished so Kathy took it on and did a great job of matching fabric and adding a border. I'm sure the original quilter would be delighted with the result. Kathy plans to donate it and i'm sure it would brighten up the dullest room.
Photo debut.
Carol made this sweet baby quilt from Amy Butler fabrics. It's for her daughter, who happens to be a baby photographer (I know what you're thinking, no, she's a grown up). She needed a neutral quilt that would work for shots of girls and boys. Let's hope pictures of this quilt grace many a loving parents' walls (and washes well!).

And now for something completely different...
The dog who lingered too long in the sewing room!

Bye for now.
