And yet more from last month

Jonathan won!!!!.  I am a very proud Mum, Jonathan’s quilt Aussie Animals won first prize in the Junior Section of the Glenrose Airing of the Quilts.  We were not aware there were prizes, just aiming to increase the junior section and it was a project for Jonathan and I to spend time together.  Jonathan’s prize included a certificate, a bundle of fabric and some prize money.  Not bad for an 11 year old boy.  Here’s a pic…

The one on the right shows you the bright orange binding.

Below are a couple of quilts completed recently.

This is a 60th birthday gift quilted with the pantograph “Tea Rose” in a yellow and blue variegated thread which gave a lovely effect especially on the more solid pieces of fabric
and Ella’s quilt, a bright kids print with coordinating fabric quilted with hearts and loops.

Here’s a view of the back so you can see the quilting.

While I was quilting the 60th birthday quilt I ran out of thread and therefore needed

to visit a patchwork shop, Oh dear! I had no cash and there is often a minimum to purchase by Eftpos, Oh dear! I had to buy something else, Oh no!  I found some great quilt labels, one of which will be perfect for the preschool raffle quilt and also a printed panel which will be great for doing some quilting detail on. So this is what I found.

I’m trying to space them so they fit nicely but its not working and at this hour neither is my brain.
Happy Sewing
