Back to quilts

A few weeks ago I quilted the following quilt which was made by Shirley of  Quilters Harvest. The pattern is called "All about Baskets" and is a BOM available from Quilters Harvest of Warracknabeal. A very pretty quilt in lovely soft colours, and I am sure they would be pleased to hear from you if you wish to order the BOM. It is a mix of piecing, and applique.

Hopefully the future has more quilt photos than renovation ones, and might include some of my projects too. I was going to call them my UFO's, but I think I might say PHD's, as that sounds much more intelligent, don't you think?  I hope to finish piecing the "wedding" quilt this weekend. I definitely need to get this done as the wedding was more than 3 months ago.!! They are a bit worried about how long I might take to make it, because I started a quilt for DD3 when she was about 18 years old, and it is not finished yet. (She is now in her 30's!!!)

I have some all over quilting to be done today, and a bedroom to clear of all the "decluttered" stuff, so that Val can sleep in the bed this weekend. Yesterday I shifted the rubbish from the pergola, although I admit that most of it has just been moved a bit further out, as the rubbish bin is full for this week. It will take me a few weeks to shift most of it.

Have a good day, whatever you are doing, and wherever you are. The weather here this week is just lovely, and would be good "in the garden" weather.

Blessings, From Jude

Your quilting is beautiful! That one looks like it took a long time.
