Projects in Progress


Did I show you this?   Not sure .... this is a quilt I did with a little quilt group - a mystery quilt I am really happy how it turned out.  I finished it off late last year but have yet to quilt it ... I'm thinking Custom Quilting for this one.  I just love the Batik fabrics that I used here.













And this lovely was one that I put together at a retreat last year ... also waiting to quilt this - hopefully before the next retreat.
I made this out of a Bali Pop pack and found some lovely Batik border fabric from The Quilt Patch in Launceston ...nice!

I have pieced the backing for this quilt as well. 













A few more beautiful Jacob's Ladder blocks ... they do take awhile to applique all the bits down, but I am enjoying it quite a lot.















I laid out a few blocks for my embroidered quilt (Life is Beautiful - By Helen Stubbings).

I don't think I will be doing the sashings as I really like the look of it without them.









I only have eight more embroidery blocks to go and then I can lay it out and sew it all together ... I am really liking this quilt.




I wonder what I will do when I am finished this ... back to my Dear Jane Quilt perhaps?

Anyways.... Happy Quilting for Now .... Jane x

Oh .... I almost forgot .... it is nearly my 200th posting so I will be having a give away on my blog ... so stick around for that.

Hi Zila, the black line is the sun shining through the quilt top showing the seam allowance. I went and had another look at the photo and a thin black sashing would look terrific - but difficult to get neatly done.
Cheers
Jane

Hello Jane, I love your stitching and the colours look great. I have started the Life is Beautiful stitcheries and popped over from Helen's blog.
Just gorgeous.
