I don’t know where the days go to! I truly have been busy with lots of sewing and quilting, mainly finishing off pieces for our quilt exhibition coming up next week here in Gatton. I have some photos here of one of the pieces I’m doing, but it just shows part of it- a landscape scene with lots of hand-sewing, hand-applique and raw-edge applique. I’m not sure if I should show the whole piece- seeing as it is going in an exhibition – maybe it’s not the done thing to show photos online first? or doesn’t that matter?! Anyway, for the time being it’s a work in progress, stray threads all over it and all.
I have about 5 or 6 pieces I will put on display, some done as a result of workshops or challenges I have taken part in with Gatton Quilters. No doubt, they will make their way onto this blog eventually.
I’m also thinking about a block I am going to make for a quilt that a group of us are collaborating on for a friend’s first grandbaby. The quilt is going to be in colours of blues, greens, turquoise, teal- anything along those lines. These are the pieces of fabric that I have been given to come up with a 10inch square block, using any method. There are 7 of us making a block each, possibly with a sea-side theme, but not necessarily. Thinking caps on…..
