60TH BIRTHDAY QUILT

I had a 10 day break from work by taking 3 annual leave days between the Easter break and ANZAC Day, it was wonderful to recharge the batteries.  Our daughter came to visit for a few days which was wonderful, I cleaned out my shoe cupboard which was a big mess, I threw out 3 pairs of shoes and have another 12 pairs in a bag ready to take to Vinnies, Life Line or the like.  My shoes now look so neat and tidy, though I wonder how long it will last ...
 
I also managed to do some sewing, turning this Robert Kaufman Jelly Roll,
 

Into this and then


into this quilt top,

My dear friend of over 30 years turns 60 at the end of May, I am making this quilt for her.  I crocheted her a quilt for her 50th Birthday and she loves it and now I am into quilting I decided a patchwork quilt for her 60th would be appropriate. Now to choose a quilt backing, sandwich it together and do the quilting.

Cheers
Kaylee
