Another year over, a new one just begun...

..well more than just begun, after all it is January 23rd! And yes, we have just had the third Saturday of the month so naturally there was a gathering of the sisters, this time at my home. It was great to see everybody.

There is renewed enthusiasm from Kerry and Sue for their versions of Mary Brown. Must be because Merri has finished her top and it looks gorgeous. (Kerry has the photo of this so if I ask nicely maybe she will add it to this post, please Kerry!)

Kerry has chosen a dusky pink for her background fabric. The centre and borders are on different fabrics. Kerry was not sure if she had enough of either to make the quilt so this is the compromise. It is difficult to see but there is a small spot on the border fabric. Don't the colours just sing?

Sue's could not be more different. Her background is a beautiful pale olive green that has an all over pattern in acanthus leaves.
You can see it better in this block that Sue is working on.

Merri has started on Antique Wedding Sampler. And despite starting a few months after Ann and I she is rapidly catching up to us.

And finally Di. Di is busy with new quilts related to her creative work as a wonderful quilt designer and publisher of patterns but decided she needed a little break from it so has started this amazing hexagon quilt. The pattern is by Will Vidinic and is in Quiltmania #86. Good luck with all of those hexagons Di!
Until next time,
