Launceston Patchwork & Quilters Raffle Quilt

I forgot about Blogger doing it backwards for pictures. So this is the back view of the LPQ raffle quilt. I custom quilted it so there was simple quilting in the centre but the houses looked like they were made from brick or wood and the background was like swirly air, with smoke from the chimneys.

The girls from LPQ were pretty happy with it - now the binding is to be done and tickets will soon be available.

Everyone wants to win this quilt - it is beautiful. The piecing is precise and the colour scheme looks great. I will have to buy a few tickets myself. I think the draw is during the September Launceston Patchwork & Quilting Exhibition - I can't wait.

And I have finally finished the Vic Fire Refief quilts for Unique Stitches - hopefully I can deliver them tonight for the ladies to bind. The great thing is that there have been mammoth efforts all over Australia by individuals and groups all making quilts to comfort. How wonderful is that.
Happy Quilting for now ... Jane
