Texas Rose Baskets

Awhile ago I started a quilt that I’ve slowly been working on.  Its taken awhile because I didn’t choose all my greens and red at the same time so it’s been a bit of a hunt to find greens and reds that work together.

About a month ago Margaret and I spent a lovely day at Mill Rose Cottage in Ballan where I found two greens and a red which I desperately needed and so I’ve manged to finish the centre blocks of this quilt and today have started the first row of dogtooth today.  I hadn’t attached to border yet as I was just checking I still liked it. Oh and I sneaked in a little bit of Smithsonian fabric!

Mill Rose is a fabulous new patchwork shop, with cafe attached, with the most friendly owner and staff you could hope to find.  Sue at Mill Rose has a sit and sew on Thursdays which if you live in Melbourne and have the opportunity you should definitely visit.

Oh and they have a lovely new blog courtesy of Lizzie, so just click the button below to visit, thru the red door.

Having said that I best go over and say hello myself, and then get back to sewing.  🙂
