Lots of catching up!!

Looking back into the photo files, I notice that once again I have fallen behind in posting pics, so here I am catching up again. Although it was photo overload during the exhibition, the following are customer quilts not yet posted on the blog.

First up is Pat's candlewicked quilt that she made for her daughter. There was a photo of the quilt hanging with it's ribbon at the show, but below are a couple of closeups. There was a lot of SID in this quilt!

This quilt was one of the Pick a Case Mystery quilts and made by Val, and was quilted allover with a pattern called Fandangle.

This strippy quilt was made by Prue and a simple block pattern was used in each block.

Michelle made this quilt for her mother, and it was custom quilted, this time with a different pattern in the 4 patch blocks and a simple flower in the plain blocks.

The top and bottom borders were wider than the side ones, and you can see what I quilted in the following photos.

This strippy star quilt was made Kerry, and was quilted allover with a star pattern.

Mon made this scrappy quilt, and it is all hand pieced, even the borders, and was quilted with an allover pattern.

There are still a few more photos in the files, but that is enough "catchup" of quilting for now.

For the last 2 days there has been more "catchup", although not quilting. Max has been switched off and there has been a lot of catchup of sleep and rest. For 2 days I have sat in the recliner, and rested, and had some "time out". For the first time in quite a while, I even read a book! There has even been some afternoon naps. My plan for the weekend had been to finalise my bookwork ready for an appointment with the accountant next week, but that can wait. It was time to recharge and rest. Life has been rather hectic for awhile now, and it all came to a halt. Hopefully by tomorrow morning, I will be back with Max, until I need to go to the dentist after lunch. The diary does not list much for the remaining days of this week, so hopefully I can get some quilts finished.

Next weekend will be time for family, as there is another wedding to attend.

Enjoy your week, and there will be more newsfromjude soon!

Blessings, From Jude
