What a perfect weekend get away.
Andrew has been travelling a lot lately and needed a weekend in the bush camping.
We found a great spot about two hours drive from Adelaide at Burra Creek, 25 kms from  Burra.

I took a huge amount of sewing with me, as usual only got a small amount finished,
just another two little pincushions to add to my growing stack of pin cushions. These will be popping up on Etsy within weeks.

The light was perfect for photographing quilts, I have two that I want to share with you.

The Hexagon quilt was finished years ago and was the start of my love affair with English Paper Piecing. 
The surprising thing is that  this quilt has about twenty yards of fabric in the top. I cut it from my stash without making a dent in it, I'm sure fabric reproduces itself when the lights are off.

I am currently working on a English Paper Pieced Double Wedding Ring in red, cream and yellow, at last count I am using three hundred and twenty two red fabrics.
I will share this when it is a little closer to being finished.

The Lone Star followed a class my good friend  Irene Carrig conducted.
This pattern is so easy and quick to make.

Enjoy the photos
cheers Rosemary
