Customer quilt update......................

I see that it is a month since my last post.... how does that happen? And perhaps I should update the post of recent (and not so recent) customer quilting, as I have been busy with Max in between the travels.

First up is a rail fence quilt made by Rosie and this was quilted allover with a bubbles pattern. I love the texture this has given to the quilt...............


Jenny made this quilt using fabric featuring cars, for her grandson. This was quilted edge to edge with a pattern called Streamer.


And another quilt made by Jenny, for a baby......and quilted allover with Whisper.


This top was made by Rosie, and quilted with a Blossom pattern.


Marion made this quilt and it was quilted with a ripples pattern.



This small applique quilt was also made by Marion, and quilted with Florale.....


......and another quilt, called Terrific Triangles, made by Marion and quilted with a swirly pattern.


This pretty quilt was made by Cheryl, and was custom quilted.......






Citrus Bars was made by Lorraine and quilted with a Cilantro pattern...........


.......and another one made by Lorraine, and quilted with Posies.



Bev made this William Morris, Michele Hill pattern and it was custom quilted.



This quilt was shown recently at the Hopetoun quilt show. Unfortunately I was away at the time, but thankyou Helen for taking this photo on the day of Bev proudly standing with her quilt.


Louise made this quilt, called Halo, and it was basted for her to be able to hand quilt it.


This triangle quilt (End game),was also made by Louise,  and quilted allover with Modern Curves.



This small quilt of Oriental fabrics was made by Marion and quilted with a pattern called Gingko Garden.



Jo made this quilt called Movement in Squares, for a grandchild, and it was quilted with Asti.............



..............and this was also made by Jo..... a Lessa Seigele Little Boxes quilt commenced many years ago, and quilted with Square dance.


Suzie made the next 2 quilts, and they were both quilted with Meander.



Here is another quilt made by Louise, the Daylesford quilt and it was quilted allover with a Wavy pattern.



This hand pieced hexagon quilt was made by Cheryl, and quilted allover with a Floral pattern.



There are a few more photos in the files, but I will finish this post here for now. 

I am in Murray Bridge filling in time while my car gets some attention and spending some time with Mum. Hopefully I might be able to get another newsfromjude update done soon and then we are off on another trip, so stay tuned.

Be back soon, (I hope).

Recent events, and celebrations..........

 It is now just 2 1/2 weeks since we arrived home, and life has returned to normal. .....Not too sure just what normal is anymore??........Here is a quick summary of newsfromjude happenings in a catchup post so that I can get my blog book printed before the shut off date....

We came home a week earlier than planned so that we could attend 2 birthday parties....the first one on Saturday evening was Lyn's 80th......


..and this was also attended by 2 of my cousins (there are 45 of us altogether as mum was one of 10 children)............and here I am with Leanne and Lyn. Our mothers were all sisters.



The other party on Sunday and was for Helen's 80th and we enjoyed a delicious lunch and a catchup with many friends.



In amongst all the parties there was a barbecue evening with Barry's brother..............


...........and the weather cooled enough for the fire to be lit...............


.......and there are no photos, but we enjoyed an evening with Ruth and Ashley, my car had to go to Keith, we decluttered more 'stuff', changed the furniture around in the lounge, put photos on the wall, enjoyed lunch at the hotel with friends after church one Sunday, started KYB lessons again, enjoyed coffee to celebrate another friend's 80th birthday, had a catchup coffee with Michelle who I went to the US on a quilting trip with 6 years ago, and of course the usual shopping, hair and doctor appointments, washing, shopping and housework. So all in all we have fitted in a fair bit since we arrived home!!
I need to also mention here that I managed to spend time with Max and churned out some quilts for customers.

*************************

Last weekend there were more celebrations, and the front driveway looked like a caravan park with 2 vans parked. DD3 and family drove from Melbourne for the celebrations.


The occasion was another birthday for me, and this one had an "0" in it. We enjoyed catching up with about 75 family and friends at the Mundulla Hotel on Saturday.

Just a few photos for you........



Here I am with blogging and zoom friend Jo of ButterZ blog.






This is a pic of my oldest granddaughter with the youngest grandie.



My mum, me and my 4 children...............


My mum, me and my 11 grandies.............

DD2 and family...............


There are more photos to come one day............ but this will do for now so that I can get the book ordered.
It was a lovely day with family and friends, and I thank those who helped make this event happen, and all those who came and those who sent messages, cards, and phoned well wishes.

Another big event recently was the graduation of GD2 who received First Class Honors in a Bachelor of Psychology, as well as becoming engaged, and purchasing their first house!!



That's all for now, there are more customer quilts to show, but that will have to wait for another post as I am about to head out again.
