Pretty Flowers all in a Row

   Well it's been a while since my last posting, I've been busy with work, studying and just life in general. My arm has not been good lately but I decided that I wanted to do something creative as I am at my best doing just that.

     This material I bought almost two years ago and I was looking for the ideal pattern to make sure all the flowers where properly framed. I was at my quilting group and I saw the exact thing I wanted hanging on the clothes line. so I borrowed a book by Lynette Anderson and used her snowball pattern for this quilt top.
   The above three pictures where trials in what way the blocks of nine should go and as usual I decided on the first one I tried. Isn't it always the way...well it is with me it seems.

 This is the middle of the top, I just love the peacefulness( if thats a word) of the colours and the beautiful flower motifs. Who ever designed this fabric has done a beautiful job.

   Any way thats it for a little while, resting the arm, but I also need to decided on borders. I thought of a couple of small width borders then possibly more squares or rectangles mmmmm we will have to see.
Thanks for visiting and enjoy your day

Cobweb Cottage Quilt by Tangled Web Quilters

        The group was talking one group day about doing a quilt as a new project and some how I was given the job as supervisor, not sure how or whether I just fell into it but I Did it
        So this is what has been keeping me busy for the last few months. I have never been involved with a group quilt before, so this was my first.  I thought at times I was a bit of a control freak but I like to have deadlines for different stages which at times I might have pushed the girls a little hard for that I apologise but you can now see the results....

The Original Design
The Finished Quilt
Weaving the web ( actually stitching the web )
            So now you can see why I haven't posted or sewn much lately. I hope you like it.
