Winter Solstice

The shortest day of the year, from now on, the days will be getting longer, here in Melbourne. We celebrated this with a blazing fire at midnight, in the icy open air, with red wine, and jazz music in the background.  A special evening, with my wonderful husband!

Patchwork of the Crosses (POTC)

Have you seen Lucy Boston's "Patchwork of the Crosses"? A very old pattern, for hand-piecing. Wonderful effects can be achieved with choice of colours and fussy-cutting. Like ornate, mosaic tiles. I made 6 sets of these 1-inch finishes edge templates for a quilt guild in Singapore last weekend. Can't wait to try a block myself!

Cheers, Lisa
