A few days ago I finished up Susan's quilt. If you've been following along, you'll have read that I began this as my NewFO & Lets Book it Challenge in October. I wrote a blog post about my progress here. Life got in the way a bit but now its at the flimsy stage. I will be taking it to Stitching Hearts to be quilted after Christmas. I am really happy with the way it has turned out.
The background is in two different turquoise fabrics, and I have laid them out in pinwheels. The circles are placed randomly.
Also about a week ago, I got the binding on Karen's quilt finished. This was also the October NewFO and Lets Book it Challenge, so I can put a big tick on that. Done! This quilt was quilted by Robin.
Last Monday, I had a text from Robin to say she had finished quilting Linda's quilt, and that I could pick it up from her sister who lives not far from me. So I dived down to Ettalong to pick it up, added the binding, then took it to Jan to sew down. Thank you Jan, you are a lifesaver. This quilt was a collaborative effort between Jan and I. Its come up OK too.
With four of the five quilts completed, Jan and I set off for Wickham on Friday. Here is the boot load of donations we took.
I wrote up a special post about the trip on the Stitching Hearts blog here. Do take a look at it, as there was heaps going on.
I have just realised that it's almost time for my second blogaversary in about 2 weeks. Never imagined 2 years ago, that I would still be blogging 2 years later. I shall have to put my thinking cap on and plan a giveaway. Stay tuned.
Til next time.....Keep on stitching.
