Back From holidays

I am now back in Brisbane after three weeks of travelling around Vietnam and the a couple of days in Singapore. It is taking me awhile to seetle back into the daily routine but I have been catching up on all the blogs- you have all been very busy and what great results to see. It looks like I have my work cut out for me on the Sue Ross BOM so I will have to make a start before Block 3 arrives.

In Vietnam I came across a Quilt Aid shop which is a project set up to support disadvantaged rural women. I was very interested in what this project was about and how it supported these women. You can learn more about the project at here.

Of course I had to buy a couple of quilts to support the project and I fell in love with these- the lap quilt I managed to pack in my suitcase and the bed quilt is in the post.

SANY0700This is my lap quilt. The quilts are all cotton fabrics, machine pieced and then hand quilted and they are amazing. 

SANY0596This is making it’s way over the seas to live on my bed. This pattern is  made in different colourways but this suits my decor. I can’t wait for it to arrive.

I will post more pictures of the local women and the amazing embroidery they do-very clever women and I spent many hours speaking to them about their life.
