And 3 more, 3 quilts and 3 posts in a week,

 One for Jacquie, a lovely flower garden
 with some fussy cut blocks, shame I was asked to do a panto not do something simple from the front but it is a finish. I think the blue makes a lovely border.
 Two is for Pam, I love the colours here, vermicelli was asked for, I wasn't sure so laid poly over and with a dry wipe pen tried other options, liked the vermicelli. KISS
 Three is my piece for the Lutterworth Piecemakers exhibition next week. The BOM /QAYG was not done every month, my bad, in fact it has been a mad catch up to a deadline but has been quilted in sections on my Bernina, with the exception of the borders, and all joined together. I found this process a little tricky but am glad I have done it.
This is possibly my favourite block, not a trapunto tree as we were supposed to do but a block I started at Phillipa Naylor trapunto class at Walcote so I thought it was appropriate, right technique different design, the hexagons were a substitution too because I had a hexi love at the time and I lost the instructions for one of the house blocks so put in the schoolhouse block I made for Rocheberrie quilters and I totally ran out of time and fabrics so had to make adjustments.
I hope the BOM organisers approve of my variations.
Till next time Liz

Just like busses

3 come together, one for Chris,
one for Lynda,

                                        and lastly Sun bonnet Sue delivered to Margaret this morning.

Borders for my Lutterworth Piecemakers QAYG are my next task, can I get it done for the exhibition on the 19th and 20th October at Walcote Village hall I do hope so, but watch this space. If I do get it done will they be able to hang it, as it was not completed I did not sign up.
Till next time Liz

One Flower Wednesdays

Look what I found, a group to share progress of hexie flowers. One flower a week and share progress once a month, I should be able to do that, I am sure going to try!

The big textile show and getting back to business

This was where I spent last weekend.
All set up and ready for action.

The quilts were all chosen to demonstrate something I wanted to discuss in my workshop.
It was a great weekend but I had fretted about it quite a lot and am glad to be all put away and back to what I regard as normality and some quilting. This is a lovely string quilt by Chris, I just put ribbon in the sashing and border and up and down in the blocks with the piecing. I am sure it will bring some colour to some child's life.
Picture taken on the washing line this morning It was a bit blowey and I had to be patient.

Till next time happy quilting. Liz
