Hello there everybody!!

Firstly, Happy New Year! I hope everyone had a great Christmas and a wonderful New Year. I sure did. My family & I spent Christmas & the New Year at the lovely Nelson Bay and went to the beach lots and lots, ate seafood, and relaxed all the time. It was oh so lovely.
We are, however, back to realty this week, but I am enjoying being back in my own bed, and back to my sewing machine. Oh how I missed that machine.

Martha has been busy over the Christmas holidays and whipped this quilt up from start to finish in four days. Now that includes sending it off to the quilter! That is an amazing turnaround for us country people, and let me tell you, Martha & I are not sharing our professional quilter with anybody. She is brilliant, wonderfully talented & super fast. We don't want her getting super busy, as we might have to wait longer than a week for our quilts, and that would be terrible for us! Hahaha. 

I love the colours in this quilt, and the contrast with the white borders. The fabrics are Riley Blake I believe. I could be wrong, as I haven't asked Martha....she would be tucked up in bed by now, so I can't check. So please correct me if I am wrong.

This one is a gift for a friend of Marthas...I wonder if she checks this blog??? I don't think so :)
