Heading to the border


Monday evening was our meeting to show our progress on our border quilts. Not everyone was able to attend, but and some are not quite keeping up. Life seems to get in the way sometimes, but you can see below photos of some of the quilts so far. There were a lot of groans when the next border was pulled out, and read BRAID! I know it will be a challenge for me, as my fabric choices are very limited, and the quilt is getting larger. We have one more meeting in April for the last border, and then it will heads down to get the quilts finished for our group exhibition in October. One lady is doing quilt as you go, so when she does her last border, she will be done. You can see the variety in colour and design.IMG_9665











I have been working hard on quilts this week, and have some deadlines to work to. I did take the day off on Sunday, and looked through my shelves to decide what I would sew. There are a “number” of boxes with WIP’s in them, but I came across some items that needed mending. I thought I would just do those, as most only needed a little bit of attention, and that would make space on my shelves, and look better, wouldn’t it?

I looked at the clock and it was after lunch time, so wondering what I would eat, I opened the fridge door. I found a few things that really needed using very soon, so cooked up a “leftover’s in the fridge” lunch.Just as I was eating that, some friends called in on their way to the pictures. I could not refuse an invitation to join them, as I was having a “day off” wasn’t I? It is a loooooong time since I have been to the pictures, and we enjoyed seeing the Water Diviner.

Time to call it a day, and head to bed. Our KYB Bible Study group starts meeting again tomorrow morning, after a break for the summer holidays. We are studying Jesus of Nazareth, so I am looking forward to that.

Be back soon,

Blessings, From Jude

So lovely to see all the quilts - its amazing how different they all are, which is what I like about this type of group project. Hope you have enough fabric for a braid...sorry no pink left here, or I would send you some!
