Week #36 - Gemma @PrettyBobbins

It's Sunday night and I'm exhausted and all I want is a glass of wine and a snooze.  That's the sign of a good week!

My name is Gemma (@prettybobbins) and I live in Canberra, Australia and this week was my week on 52 Quilters.  I jumped on board with this idea as I have lived in a few different countries and I love the idea of people connecting online and sharing parts of their world.

This was a bee quilt that involved quilters from Japan, America,
Australia and New Zealand.

Another bee quilt (coincidentally!) that I made when living
 in the South Pacific as a farewell gift for a friend.

So what did I get up to this week?  I made my husband a quilt for Father's Day from start to finish.  When did I get so super speedy?!

Freshly bound with zigzag stitch - my new favourite technique!
Super speedy!

My family attended our local Guild meeting to collect our awards for the recent quilt exhibition.  Very exciting for the children who were first time entrants at 5 and 7 years of age.

I won the Modern award and 2nd place in Wall Quilts - Professional
 for this quilt, The Eyes Have It

It was the start of Spring here in Australia and the end of the soccer season and I made the most of the sunshine.

Technically not made this week, but gives you a good idea of sunshine!

After such a busy creative week I'm feeling a little lost about the next project but no doubt it will come to me. In the meantime I'm going to be here but that cat on the chair will be on my lap under a quilt :)

Newly rearranged lounge room!

If you enjoyed this week with me please feel free to follow me on Instagram or my blog (which is sadly quiet these days).  Thanks for having me!!
