I also spent the time getting 2 quilts finished to enter into the Adelaide Quilt show in November. The baskets and rose blocks are all put together, quilted and bound!
Summertime" quilt I showed you a few months back. I had this one professionally machine quilted, with an all over Baptist Fan design. and chose a black directional fabric for the binding.
You can see the binding better in this one
You can see the quilting lines on this one
Some really way out fabrics. My friends call them "uglies"!
last post, and it is now taking shape. All the blocks are together, and I had enough "mistakes" to make a scrappy border. Not sure what I will do after this pieced border, but I am thinking either a red and black border fabric, about the same width as the pieced border.......or just binding in red or black. I plan to hand quilt this one in variegated perle cotton as well. I like the way you can set these blocks square, but get an "on point" look about it.
I really want to get back to my applique, but "have to" get these jobs done first.
