Quilt inspiration takes many forms

I’ve just spent the weekend in the Southern Highlands where autumn’s nippiness has definitely arrived, along with some of its glorious colour.


After our summer rain everything was looking green and lush.


Perfect weather for the wedding we attended.


The ponds and lakes were full.


And those picturesque beasts at the end of the pond were right out of Central Casting for Cattle. They’re very special wagyu cattle, and at the wedding reception we ate delicious fillet steak from some of their relatives. 


There was a little time to explore Bowral’s bookshops, including The Brown Bookshop in Bong Bong Street where I found this copy of Sarah Fielke’s new book “Quilting … from little things”.


Filled with quilt patterns showcasing her fresh new fabric range, “From Little Things”, it’s been popping up in bookshops all over the place. Take a look at Sarah’s blog to read about other reported sightings Smile


Hmmmm.. I think I have some Kaffe Fassett fabric just like this!


  1. Autumn colours are just glorious, it's my favourite season without any doubt. Looks as though you had a lovely weekend!

  2. How nice that you had a getaway. It looks like you were in a beautiful place! I hope you found some relaxing time. I'm sure you took some handwork along. Let's have a look.


I love to hear from you, so please leave me a comment.
