A new start.

Here it is. :-) 
As I said yesterday, this Kiwiana quilt top is from a kit I purchased two and a half years ago, in Temuka New Zealand. This is not the greatest of pictures, just me doing the layout photo. I did play around a little after this, but then put everything back to what you see here.
I should take some close up images of the fabrics, there are some real beauties. It has moved on from what you see here. All the blocks are stitched into their rows. I plan to sew the rows together today, and possibly get the borders on. Then I'll have to brave the constant downpour as the thread I want to use to quilt this one is almost out.
I'm off to do a few chores, then it's play time.

I've seen this pattern advertised in magazines. It really is striking. I have some oriental style fabrics I hope to use for a similar quilt. I'm guessing it will also be a finish before long.

That'll be a great memory quilt for you to have in the future. I also love the B&W quilt in the post before. The red does a great job of separating and controlling what could have been just a jumble of monochrome fabrics.
