May 16, 2013


It must be time for another blog update, have been rather slack in that department I know.   The days and weeks are just flying so fast. But then, maybe I am trying to fit too much into them. It seems it is almost a month since I posted photos of customer quilts. So today is the day.

Below is Pat’s quilt, a mixture of candlewicked sunbonnet sue blocks, and other techniques she has tried in a dyeing workshop, sashed with her hand-dyed fabrics.



Above and below is Ann’s quilt, made for her granddaughter, top the front and bottom, the back of the quilt.



Above is Jean’s jelly roll quilt, quilted with Kerryn Emmerson’s Square Spiral pattern.

Below is Valda’s quilt, one of Michele Hill’s designs.



Above is Kerry’s quilt, made for her son, and quilted all over with Tropical Fish, which you can see below, on the backing.


And this is Jocelyn’s quilt, also quilted with Square Spiral.


The day is almost gone, and I have not had a quilt on the machine today. Been busy though, with admin type stuff, and checking in at our local groups patchwork day. It is our AGM tonight, so time to write annual reports, and sort out my folder. Am getting final numbers for our group’s annual retreat next week and collecting final payments. We are looking forward to our retreat at Pendleton Farm, with 28 ladies attending this year.

Hope you are enjoying your day, wherever you are, and whatever you are doing. We have been very blessed to have received 30ml of rain this week, which is a good start to the season. The garden’s have been grateful and I know a lot of people who were very low on rain water.

Blessings, From Jude

They are all beautiful, Jude. Simple patterns that really bring the quilts to life. Blessings.
