Whats Black and White and Red all over?

My garden and my quilting

Red flowers are the color of my blooms in the new house.


The charming garden sculpture (water meter) is in the middle of the front yard. A huge bed of bright red petunias adds color to an ugly.



The kangaroo paws are beginning to send up shoots and the gardenia hedge will soon be in full bloom. Guess mother nature is taking a hand in my outdoor decorations for Christmas.

Magpie progress


love the negative version of Australian flora and fauna black and white are very strong.



The great black spot fabric i found on SALE. The trial layout for placement of stripes. The quilts for Aussie Hero Quilts are 2'' longer and wider than my kitchen table so i have an easy place to layout and audition these quilts.




Top awaiting quilting and accompanying laundry bag. Guess what I'll be doing this weekend.

Enjoy your weekend where ever you are  Terry

Lovely to see all those reds in your garden. I especially love kangaroo paw. Your quilt is really fabulous. The combination of that spot fabric and the native fabric is so striking. I love your Magpie. The recipient of this quilt is going to be very happy!!!

Your petunias look fantastic Terry. I love the fabrics you have chosen for the hero quilt and laundry bag, I'm sure it is going to put a smile on a soldier's face.
