Daniel's quilt - top finished

Despite the oppressive heat, I actually managed to get the sewing machine out yesterday afternoon to finish baby Daniel's quilt top.
I'm happy with how this has turned out. I'm going to get it sandwiched tonight so I can get the (machine) quilting done during the week.

The handquilting is continuing slowly on baby Luca's quilt (yes, he has a name!).

It's been too hot to think here. Just disgusting temperatures. And dozens of bushfires throughout Victoria and New South Wales, with many people dead in Victoria. What a terrifying thing to have happen to you. Fortunately, those in my family who live near Bendigo are safe. My heart goes out to the families of those who have died.

Lily the colours in this quilt are gorgeous, can't wait to see it finished.
Glad your family is OK - pretty scary stuff - so much destroyed, so many lives lost.

That's beautiful Lily, I love a touch of brown with blues and greens. Luca has a beautiful name!
And I am pleased to read that your family is safe. The loss of life is so hard to comprehend, isn't it?

Beautiful quilt lily. The bushfires are heart wrenchingly sad aren't they?

Gorgeous colors and I love the blocky pattern! So glad you are in a safe area. If it turns out to be arson, I pray they will come to justice.
