Catching up on quilt photos

Here we are and it's the weekend again! Where do the weeks go? It has been a very productive week, and after a few longs days, I have managed to finish a lot of allover quilting jobs. Although the queue has not gone down by much, because almost as many have come in the door this week. My "understudy" and helper, Raylene, returned by train to the city on Tuesday after a great few days. I even managed to quilt one of her quilts that had been in the queue, and the binding was attached, and the hand sewing was finished before the train journey ended.

It must be time for another update of quilting photos from the files. I took some time last night to work out the ones not shown, and apologise in advance if you have seen any of them. Some of these go back 2 months. Once again I am reminded of how blessed I am to have the occupation I do, where I see such a variety of quilts, every day.

The first one is made by Pat, and is a great use of scrap fabrics. This is custom quilted with a simple block in each square, as she had one of those peeper borders around each block.

The back showing the pattern, that is hard to see on the front with the busy fabrics.

This is made by Kim, for someone who loves the Minecraft game, and was quilted allover with a pattern called City Windows.

This is the back, where a dragon has been pieced.

This quilt uses a lot of scrap fabrics as made into half square triangle units, and has been quilted allover with a pattern called Pirouette.

An I Spy quilt, made by Joan, which looks great with the striped sashings.

And is a dual purpose quilt, with this panel on the back.

Very striking colours in this quilt made by Kerryn. The colours are much more vibrant than the photos show. It must have been a dull day outside.

This very large, starry quilt was made by Christina, and quilted allover with a pattern called Vanilla Orchid.

Another large quilt, made by Kim, and quilted allover with Baptist Fan.

This perfectly pieced basket quilt, made by Sherrel, was custom quilted. This was a BOM pattern from the Quilters Harvest store at Warracknabeal, which I am sad to say has closed its doors now.

A simple quilt, made by Marion, and custom quilted.

This quilt, called Fairy Floss, was the mystery quilt made by Val at the last Pick a Case retreat back in June, and has now been quilted allover with a circle pattern called Asti.

The next 4 quilts, are all made by Jenny, who has been having a clear out in her sewing room and finishing things off, and all quilted with edge to edge patterns.

I hope you enjoyed the quilt show this morning. That clears the back log slightly.

As it is the weekend again, it must be time to do some of my "stuff", and last night I got out some of the things in my pile, that are waiting to be quilted, and sorted backing fabrics for each one. There are 6 quilts, but I can't say that they will all get done??

Next weekend it is another Pick a Case Mystery retreat, which should be a lot of fun. And this week I am expecting a little visitor, called Miss Bridie, who will be spending some time each day with me. So there might not be much quilting happening until after all that.

 So maybe I better get out of the dressing gown, and into the shower, and make the most of the next 2 days, and see what I can get out of the quilting pile, and into the "ready for binding" pile?? Our exhibition is just over 2 months away now!

Have a great weekend,

Blessings, From Jude

Busy, busy. Lots of lovely quilts. Enjoy the week ahead & the weekend following. Hope you all have fun at the mystery case retreat, & mine is now quilted, but still on the machine while I put a small flimsy on the last part of the backing. Might as well get "something" else finished too. Take care.

Aren't they all just lovely! Like Pat's idea of putting the peepers on the scrappy blocks.... That BOM is just gorgeous! xx
