Quilts on Vacation - Part 4

Seven Mile Beach near Gerroa in New South Wales has always been one of my favourite places to visit. It seemed only right to take my  'twin set' quilts there for a mini vacation a few weekends ago. The weather was grey and the seas moody but I think the quilts still shine in these photos.

I call these two quilts twins because I first made this quilt

and then with the left over strips and scraps I made this quilt...

I really like them both and the way that they look so different and yet work well together. I really didn't have a design in mind when I started. I just started making 6 inch blocks and took it from there. There was little fabric left over when I had finished, which was a bonus. The addition of the black and white prints add a definite freshness to the quilts. 

The quilts were beautifully quilted by Jayne of Quilting Finesse. Thank you Jayne! 

There is a fun, busy time ahead.  I have a workshop this Saturday at Cottage Quiltworks, and then a bag making workshop there as part of Quilt Escape Week on Monday July 4th.  

Sydney has been battered by storms this week. I hope you have been safe and warm. The upside of being kept indoors is the opportunity to sit and sew. There is always a silver lining! 

Happy sewing, love Miriamx
