Three blocks of the 3rd row of my Patchwork of The Crosses, using the Inklingo collection of Linda Franz - which you can find here, .....so it is progressing slowly, though I did sit and sew quite a lot!

Bought these fabrics in Perth Yesterday...and this is actually anothe Jinny Beyer book ...I gave my original one to a good friend ( I had been VERY late with a birthday present...so gave her my one) and what a great surprise, mine was waiting for me to pick up, so as I had a heap of food shopping to do  of course I went and picked up my book. 
What a great book this is!

Waiting for me when I got home were 3 DVD's on Free Motion Quilting...hope to watch them later tonight.
They are all by Sharon Schamber which I got from this site

We stayed at Andrew and Cristina's house, and here is Andrea, her father Andrew ( my eldest son) and Patrick, Andreas young brother Patrick. Cristina was busy working.

When we got back home, Heather and her boys were here too.
They are now back in Perth..Andrew and Patrick go back on Sunday.
As you can see by the lovely colours in our Chinese Tallw tree - Autumn is here,  the rain from the last two days is gone and the sun is shining..and its cool.

thanks for the links I will check them out. I have Linda Franz's Quilted Diamond book but I hadn't realized it so closely resembled the Dear Jane quilt which I have already made one and part way in to the 2nd one. I doubt I will do that quilt seeing as it is so close to the Dear Jane look but I will check out he others.

Your Patchwork of the Crosses quilt is a stunning project. You will love the Sharon Schambers DVD's - they are wonderful.

The Jinny Beyer's book looks like a nice one and I love how you have written 'fabric only' on your scissors. Is that because your paper scissors look the same or is it to keep others from using your fabric scissors? LOL. Your POTC is just beautiful!
