Rainbow Challenge, 365 Challenge, it's all challenging!!

Lucky for me there is one more day in February this year and I can squeeze this post into this month.  I have a jolly rotten cold at the moment and am so stuffed up in the head it will be a miracle if this blog makes sense. It will be short I know that, and will just fill it up with lots of photos.  I have been busy.

 This is my lovely friend Eve's quilt "Women of Courage" that I finished a couple of weeks ago.  A very large quilt I might add, but it has come up beautifully and looking forward to seeing it hanging in the local quilt exhibition in two weeks time.

 The fabrics in this quilt really are gorgeous, and each block relates to a women of great courage in our Corrie ten Boom and Amelia Earhart.
My Rainbow Scrap Challenge block for February
Last weekend Kerry and I, plus our friend Eve, headed off to Wellington to attend the Edinburough Tattoo held at the Westpac Stadium.  What a fantastic show this was and we were so glad to have made the effort to get there.  I booked our tickets way back in June of last year!!! An awesome show.

Had to have a couple of shots of our granddaughter Marcy

I quilted this for my lovely friend Rosie who has designed this for her granddaughter's 21st birthday. Her granddaughter loves (and works) on a dairy farm. What a clever lady Rosie is, and if you knew the hurdles she has had to overcome you would realise why it is such an awesome quilt.  A pleasure to quilt for you Rosie.
Well that's it for now.  I have done some more blocks in the 365 Challenge, but have got behind a little with all this quilting I have had to do.  I think I am up to about February the 8th, but I will have some catch up sessions sometime soon. After all, I do have all year to do it....don't I?   LOL.

Take care and thank you for popping in.  Hope all is well in your world.
