More quilts

I spent quite a time doing a posting last night, and hit publish, and it took ages, and then froze up on me, so I hope all is working as it should be tonight!!

The quilts are getting done, and more arriving as some are leaving. Time for another quilt show of some that I have quilted.

This is the pile finished this week and waiting pickup or ready to be posted.

This is the quilt made by our group to be raffled at our exhibition in October. Funds raised will be donated to the Flying Doctor Service, that is well used by people in our town if they need urgent medical attention, when they are flown to Adelaide.

This is the 2014 Bedford quilt that was made by Kath and quilted all over with a pattern called April.

This is Maries Head to the Border quilt, and she is so pleased to have a finish. The centre was started in a Fractured Circles workshop with Lessa Siegele back in about 2003! It is fortunate that Marie was able to match the centre fabrics easily from her hand dyed stash.

This was quilted all over with a pattern called Modern Snails, and I love the texture that it has given to the quilt.

This is Heather’s Head to the Border quilt, which has been custom quilted. The quilts will all make a great display, as they are so different, and each persons interpretation of the design element has been interesting.

Last Sunday afternoon after a few ladies had departed, I took my sewing machine over to The Sanctuary to work on my Head to the Border quilt. I had previously sewn my hourglass border, but then unpicked it when I found the fabric that I needed. I had already cut the triangles for the blocks, so it did not take me too long to sew them together. I still need to add the corner blocks to this yet. The next 2 borders have been designed in EQ7, so hopefully I know where I am going, and it will come together when I have a few spare moments?? And then I have to hope the quilter can get her act together to get it done in time. 7 weeks to go??
