Some Quilting & Mothers Day
I had to change thread colour a heap of times with this quilt ... sometimes it just works out better that way!
I have stitched in the ditch of all the blocks and around the border. I have basted the border as my customer wants to hand quilt the border panel. This will look quite good I think as everything else is only stitched in the ditch - but what a huge job that was!
I spent the weekend up in the Central Highlands of Tasmania where the temperatures were between below zero to about 5 degrees Celcius over the weekend. Temperature guage watching is a fabulous sport - you should try it some time - lol! My medications were increased and some changed last week after a visit to the specialist ... so a weekend of being lazy was definately called for - I couldn't have done anything more and my Dear Husband James made sure the place was kept warm and comfortable!
Okay ... this week I am quilting another Candlewick Quilt for a customer up in Queensland ... it is beautiful, on a very soft creamy background. The order is for my feathers ... so I am going to have a wonderful week working on this. I hope you all have a lovely quilty week too! Jane x
