The little quilt for this Fridays’ theme “Feet” is below the photo.
A combination of two shots to get both Flairs feet and mine in the same image, hence the line across my feet. Possibly could have shopped it out but obviously didn’t 🙂
This little quilt on the theme for this week ‘Feet’ has Flair and I walking across the grass which is why I had to combine images for the photo.

Inside the shed the tools hang handy with other needed stuff below, sometimes not quite so neat as this, and although the camera cannot lie, you cannot see what I chose to leave out of this shot.
This Friday’s little quilt uses some of the tools found in my shed, simple but covers the theme.
This months product, an iPad cover, was chosen from among the five weekly themes in my ‘A Quilters Project 52’ for November, which were Circles (Nov 1); Hand/s (Nov 8); From The Ground (Nov 15); New(Nov 22) and Australian (Nov 29). I chose Circles, the very first Project 52 for November, knowing I would be called to travel to Sydney sometime this month to help mind my 15 month old grand-daughter when the new baby arrived. This I thought would give me a bit of a ‘heads up’ for actually getting the product finished on time.
This is a combination of 2 photos and although I managed that, my technical knowledge doesn’t extend to getting the same colours on both images, yet! The left hand closed iPad cover is the correct colour.

I struggled with a photo for this Friday’s theme of Australian. I knew what I wanted to do and knew I couldn’t take the base photo this week. So I compromised and used an old image taken on a Sydney Harbour ferry looking at the Sydney Opera House and overlayed the more recent wallabies. Not a good image but the idea of Australian is there. The little quilt below is more what I had in mind but I don’t have the skills yet to do that.
The quilt for this weeks theme ‘Australian’ has some of the most recognisable Australian icons on it. The Sydney Harbour Bridge, The Sydney Opera House and the Kangaroo. I also included an Aboriginal print fabric and an intense blue fabric for the blue skies of the inland.
The quilt for this Friday’s theme ‘New’ is below the photo.
24-70 @ 70mm f4.8 @ 1/30s ISO 1600
This Friday’s theme of ‘new’ couldn’t have been timed better. My latest grand-daughter at less than a week old. So new to the world! Taken inside and handheld hence the high ISO, but still pleased it came out so well.
This Friday’s theme ‘New’ and what could illustrate new better than all those things we associate with ‘new’ babies. An easy way out as I can’t draw babies let alone quilt them!
The quilt for this Friday’s theme ‘From The Ground’ is below the photo.
90mm f4 @ 1/500s ISO 800
I began by thinking this Friday’s theme ‘From The Ground’ was very similar to another theme ‘Looking Up’ until I found this cicarda shell clinging to a tree. Cicardas epitomise the Australian summer, the males shrill call rising above the human pain threshold by many decibels. The nymph emerges from underground in Oct/Nov (from the ground!)and crawls up the nearest tree(or post or wall) to emerge from its shell as a fully formed adult insect about 7cm (3″) long. As children we used to collect them and put them on the inside of the screen door to the house until mother discovered what we were doing. They have scientific names but we called them – green grocer, black prince, orange Monday, floury baker.
