Connections Challenge is Finished

Words are one way we communicate and connect with each other.

I struggled with this challenge and after 5 or so false starts and thinking about the meaning of the word I decided to make a crossword puzzle.

I looked up 'Connections' in the dictionary and found many definitions and synonyms.

I printed the crossword & grid onto white fabric then attached it to the black background. The other words were printed directly onto vliesofix and then ironed onto the background fabric. I tried various bits and pieces from the hardware store but didn't find anything that I thought enhanced the quilt.

This quilt measures 20 x 15 inches (51 x 38 cm)

Just been to visit http://bozzysblog.blogspot.com and Lynda is giving away a beautiful bag pattern that she designed.

ATCs & Foggy mornings

Once again I have been slack with my blogging, nearly a month has passed since I was last here. I haven't been up to a lot in the past month, my Mum come and stayed for a few days and we had a great time together, shopping, going out to lunch etc.

This picture was taken early Saturday morning, not long after sunrise, as the sun was coming up over the hills, the valleys are covered in fog and there was a heavy dew.

I participated in an ATC swap recently for those that didn't go on the SCQuilters retreat in Adelaide. I'm finally getting around to posting pics of the one of the ATCs that I made (forgot to take photos of the other set)and ATCs received in the swap.

This last ATC is the final one from the end of year 'Seasons' swap with my fellow ATWIAQs
Thanks for swapping Robyn.
