Island Quilt Win and some custom quilts
Second Place - Two Person Traditional Quilts - by Janine Richardson and quilted by Jane Monk ..... Janine's piecing of this mariners compass block quilt was fantastic ... I had a lot of fun quilting it ... Janine and I went through a very detailed discussion of what she wanted on this quilt and the thread colour etc.
I thought I would show you a bit of what I do when I start to do a custom quilt once on the machine.
A lovely flannel quilt - front and back.
It really is a stunning quilt - and her applique work is very very nice.
The Hobart Quilt Show - Island Quilts - was lovely again this year. Unfortunately I missed the announcement of the prizes as they had changed the time this year to an earlier time and there were a lot of roadworks coming into Hobart. Not to worry .... I'm sure I will find out who won soon enough. The quilts were beautiful - some real stunners in there this year. And I have come away inspired to make a few quilts for next years show. Congratulations to the organisers and participants alike.
Happy quilting for now.... Jane x
