2 more quilts


While I am “away” across the road this weekend, thought you might like to see another couple of quilts that I quilted recently.

First up is Maries quilt, made in a Westalee Ruler workshop. The first photo is the original fabric, with apologies for the cuts that you can see. This is all that Marie had left, and I thought that you can see how different it looks after being sliced up. It was a border print, and the butterflies were used in the sashings. Below is the whole quilt and then photos of only 2 of the blocks, so that you can see just what a difference there were in each one. I like how the little birds made a frame around the centre of one block. This was quilted with a simple custom design in each block and separate sashing pattern.





This is Pauline’s quilt, made at the “Paper Bag” Mystery retreat. The plain outside border was just “asking” for a nice pattern to show up on it, so this was also custom quilted. The centre was easy, with 2 different point to point patterns through the lighter and medium triangles. Pauline was pleased with her Mystery quilt, and has signed up for the next weekend which will be in October. I am working on another range of mystery quilts and fabrics. Would love to hear from you if you would like to join us.



We are having a lovely time at The Sanctuary, lots of discussion going on so far, not much work yet though. Heard some great stories last night, but sorry, they can’t be told here, as what happens at retreat, must stay at retreat!!Winking smileWe have a full house of 10 for Christmas in July, which is great. Will have the camera out today, with a report in few days.

Enjoy your weekend, wherever you are, either in the cold south, or the warm north.

Blessings, From Judy
