So "Swarm" is hanging up at Quiltcon this weekend, and while it didn't win anything, it's being admired by quite a few people, and Instagrammed (tagging me) - including the Cotton & Steel instagram account - which, at this point in time, has a staggering 1,815 likes to it! o.O
Thank you to instasheridan, uppercasemag, lynseyruml, and lorena_in_syd, all of whom took photos and tagged me with them!
Now I have to see if I can get Quiltcon to send the quilt to a destination in the US, rather than back to me in Australia. Because I think this will be a gift quilt for a couple of friends in Texas. :)

I don't really have a name for this quilt; I've had the pieces lying around for ages, and the pattern is from Camille Roskelley's "Simply Retro" book of quilts.
The layer cake of Hello Luscious has been sitting around for ages; it's not really my style anymore and I probably should have sold it, but but but but but...
Did the work at the Sydney Mod Squad sew-in on Sunday - first Sunday of the month at Hobbysew Top Ryde, if you're in Sydney and would like to come along, it's all-day machine sewing, good friends, happy chats, and all things quilty.
Plain Jane Passacaglia
I'm missing the B-pieces for my latest rosette:
TO DO: BACK ALL THE QUILTS!
1. Shattered Star
2. The Seaweed Is Always Greener
3. 3:10 to Mendocino
All of which can vaguely be seen in this photo of my workroom:
I know there's no longer a WIP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced, but that was pretty much keeping me honest. Not sure if someone else is running something - if you spot something, do let me know! I don't get much traffic my way - my style is too modern for some, too traditional for others, and I don't have the time to get involved in much by way of QALs and bloghops right now. Life can get incredibly busy.
I'm more frequently on Instagram these days as @seldear if you'd like to follow me there. However I will continue to post the WIP Wednesdays as I go!
