wip .. Matryoshka Quilt by Rosalie Quinlan

For the past few weeks I have been working on this cute Matryoshka Quilt designed by Rosalie Quinlan as a sample for Ballarat Patchwork. The poor sewing machine has been packed up for well over a week and it was great to get it out and start putting the blocks together. The first four rows are done!

Each evening last week I appliqued around the dolls. The visofix I used was a bit think with the linen, and I looked very sophisticated with a finger wrapped in sticky tape to proctect it from the needle. Must find a thimble I can use .... silly me.

Off to cook dinner a nice dinner for Fathers Day xx

It looks gorgeous Rachel! I love the colours and fabrics that you have used - what range are they or are they from various?

The best thimbles I ever found were some strange fabric-y things that you wrapped around your finger and - I just can't remember who they are made by! And I need to remember so I can buy some more too! The tip of my middle finger on my right hand has been shredded through quilting my Amy Butler quilt :o( Ow!

Hello again! I've just had a look on google and the thimble I like is called the "wrap-it thimble" and lots of Australian ebay sellers have it!
