Possum Magic - Border #2 Done and Dusted

For those of you who visit here and were unaware...where've you been???.....I am part of an illustrious crew known as Possum Magic.

Possum Magic is a Trans Tasman Round Robin Quilting Bee made from some fair dinkum Aussie girls and 3 Kiwis.One of the Kiwis is an import from France but we're not picky Down Under.

Aussie Sheila's are :

Kiwi Chicks are :
Alice from Blossom Quilts
and Moi ( I'm Not the French one in case you were wondering )

We have a schedule and I always receive from Jane and then send onto Alice in Wellington which is a godsend since I always finish the day it's due and probably because I know she's only 1 days post away!!!!


This is what I received from Jane, Carla's centre improv leaf...love...with Jane's first border of green and white bricks fading out to just white/low volume bricks....love love love.

To colour or not to colour?? That was the question....of course I had to colour!!

 With these babies! Simplified Flowers by Little Miss Shabby for Moda Bakeshop .Corey also does a mini version as well...too cute

 Then I thought every garden needs some crawly, buggy inhabitants, so along came these guys from Pieced By Numbers' online Craftsy shop.

 A little bit of sewing, piecing, ripping of paper ( Not my hair phewww ) and a fair bit of pinning later we have this......whaddya think peeps?

 Shhh don't tell the others but I was considering saying I had posted it.......and I have no idea what could've happened to it....damn Karma

 I ran out of time...surprise surprise...to embroider the Ladybug's antennae on but I'm hoping Alice or Wendy might do it for me since they are both handy with the needle.....hint hint

I really enjoyed working on this border and was sad to see it go, but I'm hoping Carla likes her little quilt so far.
Linking up with Heather and Megan @ Quiltstory ( Missed you guys !)


And Alyce @ Blossom Heart Quilts ( Feels like forever since I've linked )


  1. You've done an amazing job!! I still think it looks finished; good luck to Alice in working in a next round! ;) I wouldn't even know where to start!!

  2. I get to keep this at the end? Yippee!
    I. Am. Not. Worthy.

  3. Holy wow!! You nailed this one :) It is so cool to see these quilts make the rounds, you ladies are SO talented!!! Beautifully done, major high five coming from the US :D

  4. ummm, hello? How gorgeous is that!!?!?!?? I don't blame you at all for wanting to keep it. I'm trying to figure out if I can somehow divert it to my house.... :D I guess it's okay that Carla gets it, seeing how she's so nice and all... ;)

  5. Ha ha ... hint, hint, nudge, nudge ... love it! I get this one last and I'm soooo pleased you added all that colour! If gives us ladies at the tail end a little more to play with :)

  6. I just love love your addition to this - of course you had to go with colour, and it looks so fun!

  7. Well done Rebecca. It looks great. Carla's is tuning into a garden now and there's lots of scope for future rounds. I love what you've done with it.

  8. Very pretty. I love those lady bugs. They're adorable!

  9. I love those ladybugs - just perfect for this quilt.
