March quilting

Just posting a few more quilt photos as we head into the close of another month. I have had the head down this week working on some custom quilts, which I will post another day. I was intending to spend the afternoon watching the series 5 DVD of Downton Abbey, which a friend has lent me. But, as the day was half gone when I arrived home from church, I decided to leave the DVD until next weekend, which is Easter. I don’t like to travel on the roads then due to the high volume of traffic. I have lots  I want to achieve next weekend, with Paper Bag Mystery’s high on the list. I managed to get one done this afternoon, and then have a big sort out of the “little” piles of fabric I have waiting! Winking smile

First is a quilt from Jennifer Meek’s shop at Nhill, which had a simple edge to edge treatment.  Very pretty quilt, although it looks a bit pale in this photo.


This very striking quilt was made by Lois, and she wanted an edge to edge, and likes lots of quilting. I used a pattern called Sticky Buns, and wonder just why it was named this?? But it gave the quilt a lovely texture.


A simple jelly roll quilt, made by Jean, with appliqued flowers in each corner, and quilted all over with Butterflies and Swirls and will be given to a young girl.


This was made by Helen for some friends who like music. The main fabric has music on it, although bit hard to see in this photo. Helen’s borders resemble piano keys and add a nice touch. Quilted allover with a pattern called Spring Thing.


And this is Marie’s Ring Cycles, started in a Lessa Siegele workshop. Very simply quilted with basic custom. I know Marie is very happy to have finally reached the binding stage of this quilt.IMG_9893

That’s all folks, it’s time for bed. And another week of quilting and all that goes with that to start again tomorrow morning.

Blessings, From Jude
