March 21, 2013

Firstly I offer my apologies for a lapse in posting, and since I have been suitably reminded, I am sitting at the computer way past my usual bedtime! (Hope you appreciate this Faye!!) I have been intending to post all week, but time has just run away from me.
I have heaps of photos of quilts to post, so hope to be more disciplined. Thanks to those of you who check in on me.
Below is Kath’s quilt, custom quilted. Kath is still churning out lots of quilts, and has passed the great age of 80! I hope I can still be sewing at that age.
And below is a quilt finished for a friend by Lorraine.
And below is Linda’s African Beauty quilt, very stunning and a great use of her hand dyed fabrics.
And below is Helen’s quilt, made with a couple of packs of fabrics that just happened to go together.
And a blue and white beauty make by Sylvia for a wedding gift. Two colour quilts always look stunning don’t they?
And this is taken  at Millicent today, a display of Michele Hill’s quilts all hanging together in the Civic Centre, as part of the Geltwood Festival. There were quilts from local groups hanging in the shop windows and other crafts on display. And the highlight of our day was visiting the class of the lovely Faye Packham!
The weather was wild and windy and wet, and lots of trees were blown over. But we had a lovely day and visited a couple of patchwork shops and a nursery on the way home. And combined our trip with a visit to a good friend in hospital at Mount Gambier who has just had surgery.
This weekend our local group have the pleasure of a class by Lessa Siegele, so I think I better look at my requirement list tomorrow. Nothing like leaving things to the last minute! Have another quilt loaded ready for the morning, and need to turn on the taps at The Sanctuary as this wild weather did not blow any rain our way.
Time for bed, has been a long day, but a good one. Will try and come back soon!
Blessings, From Jude

Jude, what wonderful quilts you have been quilting. They are all beautiful and so diverse. As longarm quilters we certainly don't work on the same quilts each day. Aren't we lucky. Thank you for sharing about the quilt show in your area. Blessings and happy quilting.

Jude, I'm not sure which quilt I love the most........ you've shown some stunning ones today. I think I'm drawn to the two colour quilt. Very nice indeed. How lucky you are to see all of Michelle's quilts at what looks like a great venue.
Enjoy your weekend.

Glad you are getting the best of Adelaide (Michelle, Lessa and Faye)in the bush! Hope we all get some rain soon, our watering system packed it in!
