Imperial Diamonds


A couple of photos of the latest quilt, Imperial Diamonds by Val H. Well pieced and seams all pressed the right way by this lady. Thankyou Val. Quilting was all diagonal lines, so lots of SID.
Managed to get it finished in time to take to Adelaide last Friday, when I went for Quilt Valuation Day, which happens every 2 months. Always a good day, and we get to see lots of lovely quilts.

Then I went to the beach to visit family that are holidaying there, and then out north to see more family and then on the way home I caught up with my mum and dad. Hadnt seen them for awhile, so was good. Mum is going really well now, recovered from December's scare.
(Also had quite a shop up in the garden shops on the way home, lots of potted colour to brighten up a few spots in my garden). So it was a rather long day, and took me awhile to get out of bed next morning.

The weekend has been mostly spent at The Sanctuary, planting, weeding, potting, laying brick edges and generally trying to get organised for an event in 2 weeks.
Our local patchwork group are holding a Biggest Morning Tea event at The Sanctuary on April 29th.
(Except we are having it in the afternoon!!)
Will have tables and chairs set up in the back yard, for people to come and have afternoon tea and look at a few quilts hanging around the place. A lovely sunny afternoon would be good. Look forward to seeing lots of people, money raised goes to the Cancer Council SA.

Well better get busy, lots happening, quilts to do too.
Enjoy your day, whatever you are doing,
From Jude
