Queensland Dreaming in Tasmania

My former work colleague Cath recently had twins. She lives in Tasmania these days and was able to take a snapshot of the quilt I sent to her which is now in situ in the babies' room.

This rather wild outing is called Queensland Dreaming.

Lone Star in progress

I'm taking a class at Smith & Owen on Lone Star quilts. I've picked up a few great techniques (particularly a way of doing Y seams that is much better than most I've seen) and had fun working with batiks.
I bought the book on little Lone Stars , too.

Tulips and Lemons

Another Piece of Cake design turned up in a magazine while all the applique supplies are still out in the studio, so I used some fabrics that went into a recent quilt (that one I designed a few years back but they are similar in some respects). Might turn into a table topper.

Now I'm preping for another class (on a Lone Star), and I've decided to use batiks, so "now for something completely different!"
