quilts have been transferred from the UFO pile into the "waiting to be quilted" pile. So happy to have achieved some finishes at last and am feeling a lot better.
Lots of photos for you so hope you enjoy....
The first photos are of our trip to Wellington to see our son Richard and his lovely wife Kea, and the absolutely adorable granddaughter Marcy (of course I'm not biased)...
I loved the look of this sculpture in the square along Lambton Quay and we also went to Scorching Bay for afternoon coffee and cake. It was my birthday on the Saturday so we had to have cake!!!
I used Magnifico 2159 for the blue part of the quilt, and King Tut 917 on the red border. Worked well
These squares were such fun to do, apart from going the wrong way a couple of times and having to unpick!
Spirals filled the alternate square created by the diagonal lines. Good look and again nice and quick to quilt.
Then it was on to finally finishing one of my dd Rebecca's cushions. Again going for that more modern look and very pleased with the results, as is dd. The focus fabrics I am using were a gift from my pal in Kansas, Barbara - thanks Barb, they are being used for a great purpose. Now to get on to the other couple.
The Aunt Grace 1930's quilt I bought as a BOM in Missouri, with above mentioned friend Barbara, has now moved into the awaiting quilting pile. Just love this and might try and get it quilted for the next upcoming exhibition. That's if I get all my customer quilts done for this same exhibition!
The "Pretties" scrap quilt is also in the finished pile. It was supposed to have another two borders, but I have decided it is quite big enough at 76 x 83 already. The great thing about some scrap quilts is they look good with or without borders and this one will be fine.
And it wouldn't be right to finished without letting you see that the boys are being well looked after. We bought them this "Mummy rug" which is like Minky. They go bananas over it and knead it to death lol.
So there you have it. Updated and will put the rest of the photos in another post. Hope you are all well and enjoying life.
Take care and God bless,
