Quilt Show

Once again another week has gone by and no blog posting! I had good intentions last night, but when I sat at the computer I decided it was all too hard, and could wait until this morning. When I went back to my photo files, I found over 20 photos of recent quilting that I had not shown, so I will try to catch up a bit this morning. My blog seems to have been about lots of "other stuff" lately, and not much quilting news, although I have still been keeping Max busy! I have also had another couple of road trips in the last week, so no wonder the week has gone fast. It was lovely to have a very quick catchup with some family for a birthday and I will include another photo of Miss Bridie, who is growing up so very fast.

I have a lovely group of ladies here for the weekend, and some who have been coming and going, and I will update you on that in due course. And I have been making progress in the garden too, and have been taking photographs for a post on that.

This dresden quilt was made by Barb, and custom quilted. I love the colours of the fabrics that Barb used. It is such a pretty combination.

This quilt was made by Di, in one of the Mystery quilt retreat that was held last year. Another group of colours that worked really well, that was quilted with an allover pattern.

This was made by Kaye for a special gift, and featured photos, which was custom quilted.

This quilt that was made by Sue, and was very large, I took the photo while it was draped over the rollers of Max and it was quilted with an allover flower pattern.

A scrappy quilt, made by Kath and quilted with an allover pattern called Dandy. Kath, who is in her eighties, is a very prolific quilter.

I loved the piecing in this quilt that was made by Suzie. The blocks were rather cute, and featured quite tiny pieces, and included chooks, pigs, cows and sheep. It was quilted with an allover meander. I loved the red triangle border around the edge.

This fun quilt was made by Kerry as a prize for the raffle at a Strawberry Fete. The pieced strawberry's all had strawberry's on the fabric, so of course it had to be quilted with an allover strawberry pattern!

This was finished by Pamela, from something her mother had started, and quilted allover with a modern pattern.

I hope you enjoyed the quilt show this morning, and I will be back with more photos later.

It is Anzac day here in Australia today, and we remember all those who sacrificed for our country.

Blessings, From Jude

My the little one is certainly growing. Cute. Thanks for the great quilt show, which shows that you've certainly been busy. I was going to blog today to catch up, but it's more likely to be tomorrow now, as I've got to show the rest of our little trip. Have a good week and take care.

It must be lovely to see so many beautiful quilts every week.
